These steps will help you build a breakfast casserole that is easy, yummy and unique using ingredients you already have on hand!
Serves: 12
  • Crust of some sort - slices of bread, flour or corn tortillas, canned biscuits, canned crescent rolls, dough, biscuits, english muffins, etc. Probably anything will work!
  • Eggs - We use about 8 eggs for a 9x13 pan, you can use more or less depending on how thick you want the eggs.
  • Meat - like pre-cooked sausage crumbles or pre-cooked bacon, cubed ham, ham slices cut up, etc. Anything you want, including beef or chicken (they can be eaten at breakfast too!)
  • Veggies - we use our frozen onions and peppers quite frequently, but other good veggies are spinach, mushrooms, asparagus, tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini, etc.
  • Cheese - classic cheddar or mozzarella, but honestly any cheese will work (even cream cheese dropped on the casserole by pieces!). One of our favorites is actually feta!
  • Milk - 2 TBSP.
  • Salt, Pepper and/or other spices you like!
  1. Line a 9x13 greased baking pan with your crust
  2. Layer on the meat of choice
  3. Layer on the veggies of choice
  4. Layer on the cheese of choice
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and milk until well beaten and mixed. Add the salt/pepper/other spices to the egg mixture and blend.
  6. Then pour the egg mixture over the casserole.
  7. Bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes at 400 degrees. It is done when it is brown on top and bottom and a knife comes out clean in the middle.
  8. Serve warm.
