Breakfast Casserole Recipe
Is breakfast one of your favorite meals? If not, it’s going to be with this cheesy Amish Breakfast Casserole! What’s not to love about crispy bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns and cheese, all baked to a bubbly perfection in a 9×13 baking dish?
This is a great recipe for relaxed weekends, holidays (Christmas morning, Easter Sunday, etc) or pot lucks. Some people have told me they’ve doubled the recipe for a large crowd (use 2 dishes) and there’s never any leftovers!
Want to add sausage?
Bacon is my weakness so that’s why I use bacon for this recipe but if you prefer sausage, go for it! Follow the recipe as instructed, browning the sausage with the onion and pepper. You can use turkey sausage, or mild/hot pork sausage. Want to make it really special? Check out my homemade breakfast sausage!
Can I make this in a 8×8 pan?
You sure can. Simply cut the ingredients in half and bake in a 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish for a smaller serving.
Can I make this in advance?
Absolutely, and I often do this, especially for Christmas morning. Prepare the recipe as instructed, but just don’t bake it. When it’s time to bake, remove from the refrigerator and allow to sit on your counter while your oven preheats. Once preheated, bake as usual for 1 hour.
How to Store and Heat Leftovers
What’s even better than breakfast casserole? Leftover breakfast casserole the following morning – hah! Simply store leftovers in a container in the fridge and then reheat in the microwave or oven the next day.

- Make sure the hash browns are fully thawed. Remove as much water as you can from the hash browns to prevent a soggy casserole. I like to put the hash browns in a strainer and press down on them with my hand to remove excess water.
