This recipe is a favorite at our house. It’s so delicious! I especially love it because I can use whatever ingredients I have on hand. I don’t always “follow” recipes exactly, but I’m going to do my best to explain how to make this easy breakfast casserole! Keep in mind that you can totally customize this recipe for your family’s preferences.
- Croutons (plain or cheese and garlic) not Caesar!
- 7-8 Eggs
- Milk (about 1/3 cup or so)
- Salt and Pepper (dashes)
- Garlic Powder
- Salsa (1/4 cup)
- Bacon, sausage or ham, cooked
- Onion, chopped
- Bell Pepper, chopped
- Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease baking dish. I usually use an 8 x 8 or a round pie plate. Spread one layer of croutons over bottom of baking dish. Mix eggs, milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder just like a scrambled egg mixture. At this point, I like to add a little salsa to give the casserole some zing!
Evenly sprinkle onion, peppers and meat over croutons in baking dish. Slowly pour egg mixture over vegetables and meat. Sprinkle (lots!) of cheddar cheese on top.
Bake for 30-45 minutes until center of casserole is set.
