Cheesy Breakfast Casserole

A quick and simple breakfast casserole filled with eggs, cheese, potatoes and bacon! Perfect for any morning.

OH man, I love breakfast!

I’ve talked about this many times before, but our family loves to enjoy breakfast for dinner at least once a week. That is because our mornings are usually so crazy and rushed that we rarely have time for a real hot breakfast. It’s typically toast, bagels, cereal or oatmeal. Pretty lame, I know, but that is why we usually make breakfast for dinner every Wednesday. Sometimes we go savory – sometimes we go sweet.

Today’s recipe happens to be savory, and it’s another Cheesy Breakfast Casserole. I say “another” because I have quite a few here on the site, like my Cheesy Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole for example. The reason for this is because you really can’t go wrong with them. They also usually take just minutes to throw together and are always delicious. I mean, can you really go wrong with potatoes, eggs, cheese and bacon?? My point exactly. 😉

This breakfast casserole was simple and can also be changed up really easily. If you don’t love bacon, use sausage instead. You can also change up the cheese dependent on preference. So many ways to customize and make it easily how you want it. Here is the printable recipe:

  1. Me too. I love the simplicity of these meals as some sites have soo many fancy extra ingredients that I don’t have around(herbs/spices ect) and my kids are picky at times. I have recently tried your easy alfredo/chicken tettrazini/creamy swiss chicken bake–all a hit w/ my 3 girls and husband. Thank you !


  2. Breakfast bakes are my favorite, but I try to limit myself to only 1 or 2 per month. They’re so filling! (And usually gone by dinner time.)
