For those who love the earthy sweetness of beets, a roasted beet salad adds a lovely splash of color to the meal and pairs wonderfully with the flavors in the casserole.
If you’re serving this casserole for brunch or an early lunch, consider adding a sweet note to your meal with some freshly baked muffins. Blueberry muffins or carrot muffins offer a lovely balance of sweetness that works well with the savory casserole.
