Sunday Brunch Casserole

Recently, I helped with a brunch and brought two different breakfast casseroles. I had both in my recipe file, but couldn't remember the last time I had made these... I just knew they were good enough to be in my recipe file. I was so happy I decided to stick with these recipes and not try anything new. They both turned out delicious!
This Sunday Brunch Casserole was a different spin than your traditional breakfast casserole with sausage. I loved that it had bacon, eggs, cheese, and potatoes. Yum, yum! You can easily make it the night before and stick it in the fridge until morning. I will definitely be making this one again soon.

Sunday Brunch Bacon Casserole

  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside. In same skillet, saute onion and green pepper in drippings until tender; remove with a slotted spoon.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk. Stir in hash browns, cheese, salt, pepper, onion mixture and reserved bacon.
  3. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 35-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
