I have been making this very casserole for Christmas breakfast for at least 20 years. If I dared make anything else, I think my family would return the gifts they got me! There are lots of easier egg casseroles out there, but this is by far the best!
I used this recipe for hearty breakfast muffins. I baked the bacon in a 400 degree oven then chopped it and sauteed it briefly with the onions. While the mixture is in the fridge for 30 minutes, line muffin tin with paper holders. Divide batter into muffin tin (mine makes 12) and bake for 30-35 minutes. These freeze well and can be warmed by microwaving for 2 minutes. I'm not sure how long these will keep in the freezer because we eat them in just a few days. My kids like to have salsa and cheese on top-not for me, but they really like it.
GREAT recipe! I have made it 2 times now...first time....as directed only I used turkey bacon and a little more cheese (my family LOVES cheese). The second time sauted mushrooms and spinach and added that to the egg mixture. I also used alittle velvetta mixed in with the cheddar (I had a little bit I needed to use) I also had some sausage I wanted to use so I replaced the bacon with that. It was good, but I think we prefer the bacon. I tried them in muffin tins and that worked great! I made a half batch the first time, and a full one this time so I have extras for the freezer for school morning breakfasts. My kids Loved them! Next time I want to try adding artichoke hearts and use swiss cheese. GREAT Recipe! Thanks for sharing!
Made this for some friends & they enjoyed it.Becky said "a lil to much breadcrumbs" & Pat said "Add a lil cinnamon to the breadcrumb mix".Might try that next time I make it. :) Thanks for posting.
Very delicious! My husband, who hardly eats any breakfast, couldn't get enough. My 2 yr old and 10 mo old loved it as well! THANK YOU!! :)
My guests really liked this dish. I really liked it too because I didn't have to get up early to have it done for brunch. I followed the recipe except for a few minor changes: seasoning - I just kept tasting until I was satisfied. Onions - I just used green onions (so I did not saute them). Instead of Bacon, I used Chicken sausage - this was a great alternative! Also, I added some shredded potatoes that I browned before - Yum!
I served this for a Playgroup Brunch and got rave reviews. Everyone asked for the recipe! I omitted the mushrooms due to the kids, but otherwise followed the instructions precisely. Yummm-mmy!
I used this recipe (except I used a little butter & about 2 cups cubed, cooked ham instead of the bacon) for a fundraiser breakfast at my house. I tried several breakfast casseroles before the event to pick the best one. This recipe won the taste test. If we had had around 40 people, they were going to get a different, easier recipe. However, we just had 24 to say they were coming, so I made this recipe. It was delicious, and everyone complimented it. Thanks so much.
