This breakfast recipe is also great for holiday mornings, when you know you have a big meal to cook that day and don’t want to fuss with breakfast too.

You can prep this recipe the night before, cover and store it in the refrigerator. All you have to do in the morning is to pop it in the oven and let it bake while you get the coffee ready πŸ˜‰

I also like to cook a batch of this on the weekends, cut it into pieces, then store them in the freezer or fridge to reheat throughout the week. My husband can pack a slice to take to work, or I can quickly reheat a slice to give my kids before school.

How to Make Bacon and Egg Hashbrown Casserole

Putting this casserole together is just about the easiest thing ever, because most of the work is done for you at the store.

All you need for this dish is a package of bacon, a package of frozen hash browns, seasonings like salt, pepper garlic and onion powder, and paprika, eggs, cheese and milk.

To begin, take the bacon out of the package, chop it into bite-sized pieces, and cook in a skillet until well done. Alternatively, you can cook the bacon in slices and then cut them into pieces.

If you are really short on time, you can also buy a package of pre-cooked bacon and cut that up…I won’t tell anybody πŸ˜‰

When the bacon is ready, you want to start adding it and the rest of the ingredients into a greased casserole dish.

Next, in a large bowl, whisk the milk and eggs to combine. Pour milk mixture evenly over hash brown mixture.

Top with the remaining cheese and bake the dish uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees, or until hash browns are cooked through and the egg mixture is no longer runny.

Let the dish cool for about 10 minutes before slicing it. Serve by itself, or with some fresh fruit on the side and something warm to drink.

How to make a breakfast casserole ahead of time

If you want to prep this casserole ahead of time, you’ll want to cover the dish with plastic wrap after adding the cheese, then store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

When you are ready to bake, simply take off the plastic and place the dish into the preheated oven.
