Making Baked egg Casserole

Ready for the easiest breakfast recipe you’ve ever tried?

You’ll need about 12 eggs for this casserole. Add all of the eggs to a large bowl and whisk them together. Whisk in the mozzarella, cheddar and cottage cheeses to the bowl. Then add the flour and salt. After everything is throughly mixed, pour it into a greased 9×13 baking dish. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes.

Take it out of the oven and serve warm with other favorite breakfast foods!

If you have any leftover baked eggs, cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just reheat it for a minute or so in the microwave and serve!

    I am so excited to try these! They look so soft & airy! I had never thought to make them like this, but it’s a delicious option over scrambled eggs.

    Fluffy eggs are the best, and these are literally the fluffiest eggs I have ever had. Seriously never making eggs any other way ever again.

    I made this for Christmas morning breakfast, and the time was too much! I would cook it 30 minutes instead of close to an hour next time. It was all dried out and over baked. The flavor was great but it was dried out. I hope this helps!

    1. Thanks for the feedback. The ads do enable us to provide free content and recipes for readers. Thanks for understanding and being here!

  4. Have you tried this recipe in muffin tins instead of the casserole? I’m thinking about making in jumbo muffin tins and letting each person pick their own add-ins.
