Bacon egg and cheese casserole

This delicious casserole  is one of those easy breakfasts that you can just throw it all together without having to do a lot of thinking first thing in the morning . Please tell me I’m not the only one that struggles in the mornings?!

Don’t judge me! I know I can’t be the only one who has trouble thinking straight in the morning. 😉

Just like my French Toast Casserole, you can actually assemble this the night before. Then, it’s all ready to be cooked in the morning. I love it! However, you can make this the morning off too!

If you are more of a night person like me, throw this together the night before and have one less thing to do in the morning. This is such a time saver on busy school mornings.

This is a pretty standard recipe that you can easily add to it. Start with this simple breakfast casserole and jazz it up any way you want.

How to make bacon egg and cheese casserole:

Fry bacon in skillet. Remove and pour out grease. Once bacon is cooled, crumble into small pieces.

In the same pan, saute onion and green pepper until tender (this adds some nice bacon-y flavor to your onions and peppers).

In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, hash browns, cheese, salt and pepper. Add in crumbled bacon, onions and peppers.

If you are making this the night, simply cover with foil once you add egg mixture to pan. Refrigerate until ready to bake.

Garnish with green onion if you like.

Time saving tip

One of our favorite time saving tips is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them.

They are such a time saver and you make cooking so fast and easy. I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need.

It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes. We save a ton of time during the week by having items like this already on hand chopped and ready to go in the freezer.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen! Lots of the recipes we cook call for onions and peppers so this is such a great time tip that we use frequently.

You will love having peppers and onions all ready to go! It is quick and easy.

Variations to easy breakfast casserole:

  • Try other types of meat. Sausage is good.
  • Omit the meat for Meatless Monday.
  • Try different types of hash browns- diced, shredded, etc.
  • Use different types of cheese- Monterrey Jack, Colby, sharp cheddar and others are all delicious in this breakfast casserole
  • Add more veggies to the casserole mixture.

Bacon egg and cheese hashbrown casserole  freezes great!

You can easily make 2 or 3 of these bacon egg and cheese casseroles and freeze them.

I make mine in these 9×13 throw away pans. Cover with foil and then freeze. When you are ready to cook, pull from the freezer and allow it to thaw overnight. Then cook at 350 degrees for about 1 ½ hours. No mixing, no mess, and breakfast is done!

You might even want to give one of these casseroles away to a friend. I know it would brighten their day!

This is such an Easy Make-ahead Breakfast Casserole!
