This casserole is packed with all the breakfast goodness you can imagine. Definitely, the ultimate morning breakfast to feed a hungry family you will also love my Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole.
Perfect casserole for a weekend or holiday breakfast, throw all your ingredients into a skillet and let the oven do the work.
Tips for making breakfast casserole:
1. Use thick-cut bacon for the casserole.
2. Use an oven-safe skillet I love this cast-iron skillet, but any 12-inch oven-safe skillet or 9x13 baking dish will work.
3. When you put the hash browns into the skillet it will look like a lot, but they will shrink down a bit after baking.
4. If you don't have a lot of bacon grease, you can drizzle 2 tablespoons of melted butter over the hashbrowns.
5. Use a combo of whatever cheeses you like. I love the flavors of pepper jack and cheddar together.
6. Substitute diced ham for the bacon or sausage.
Can I make this ahead of time?
Sure mix the casserole together the night before and it's ready to go in the oven in the morning.
Can I freeze this easy breakfast casserole?
Yes, it's perfect for freezing. Just prepare and bake as instructed let it cool completely place it in an airtight container or freezer bag and freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat just place it on a baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
Can I make my own hashbrowns?
Of course! Here is a great recipe from Simply Recipes if you want to make your own.
