Breakfast casseroles are easy to make and very versatile. I typically add fresh chopped onion, green peppers and some mushrooms to our Egg Casseroles. Just remember that anything you can put in a omelet can be made into a casserole. I typically bake the bacon in the oven or use my cast iron skillet, but if I am in a huge rush, I cheat, and use pre-cooked bacon.
Try this easy breakfast casserole recipe loaded with crispy bacon and shredded cheddar cheese. Nothing beats a NO-WORK-INVOLVED overnight breakfast casserole. Pop it in the oven, enjoy your morning coffee, and settle in for a fantastic family breakfast.
This dish can even be mixed the night before and stored in the refrigerator. Put in the preheated oven first thing in the morning and breakfast will be ready in 45 minutes. You’ll need your 9 by 13 casserole dish and a good mixing bowl.
I love prepping meals the night before and popping them in the oven first thing in the morning so my kids have a warm breakfast before we leave and I have time to get ready instead of worrying about getting breakfast on the table. My kids love how delicious they are and ask for egg casseroles over and over!
