breakfastThis simple little breakfast casserole has been a hit with everyone I’ve shared it with.  I’ve often been asked for the recipe, so I thought I would share it with you in the hope that you’ll feel the same way!

Anytime we have company staying with us or with any family vacation, this casserole is a must.  It’s fantastic because you make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight.  In the morning you just pop it in the oven at 350 degrees and in about 45 minutes you have a delicious, hot casserole.  That way, instead of standing at the hot stove cooking bacon, eggs and pancakes in the morning while everyone else is enjoying a nice cup of coffee and chatting, you can be right there in the midst of them!

There’s lots of flexibility that can be enjoyed with this recipe by simply adding some other ingredients to the eggs as you mix them.  A couple of thoughts are fresh chives, garlic or maybe chili.

Perfect make ahead breakfast casserole... hearty, filling, delicious! #breakfast #breakfastcasserole #hotsauce #recipe Click To Tweet

At our house spicing things up a bit is a must, so we always offer salsa and hot sauces to be eaten with our breakfast casserole.  I like things “mildly” hot, which is basically cold if you ask my husband.  I have never seen anyone that can eat hot peppers like that man can.  I tease him that he doesn’t get the flavor of the actual food because all he can taste is the hot sauce and he teases me about how bland I like my food!  As they say, variety is the spice of life!


To the breakfast casserole, add a nice bowl of fresh fruit and maybe a mimosa.  Aw, the perfect breakfast!

Enjoy it soon!

I have made a similar breakfast casserole many times and it is a family favorite. I post a different breakfast casserole that was very good as well.

Teresa, this looks delish. Wish I had a big piece of it right now! I like that you don’t make the casserole overly hot but offer the hot sauces on the side. Like you, I prefer my food just mildly hot.

Teresa January 17, 2017, 8:37 pm

Thank you Jean. It does sound good about now. Thank you for stopping by!

Teresa, this sounds so good. We love breakfast at any time of the day and this would be a meal in one dish. Love that. I also love that I can substitute the french bread for a gluten free version! And my daughter is a vegetarian, this casserole is so versatile that I can tailor one just for her. Perfect.

Teresa January 17, 2017, 7:46 pm

I agree, you could make this to fit the need. For the vegetarian diet, maybe mushrooms, peppers and ? Thank you for stopping by and reading!
