The Best Breakfast Casserole

The Best Breakfast Casserole by AL blogger My Life Well Loved

This is pretty much the best breakfast casserole I’ve ever made or feel like I need to make. I got this recipe from my mother-in-law and it has served me well over our 5 years of marriage so far. I have made it A LOT over the years for BRINNER (breakfast for dinner), company, and just to last us on a tight budgeted week. I’m making this best greakfast casserole again this week, so it reminded me that I should share it here with you guys.

I actually shared this recipe on my old blog and it had over 3,000 pins so a lot of you must like it too. It also got lots of likes via Instagram which may be where some of you recognize it from. If you’re not following me on Insta yet, I’d love have you hang out with me there!

This best breakfast casserole recipe makes a ton of food, so it’s great for weeks when I don’t want to have to cook a lot during the week and we need plenty of leftovers. This casserole is so good that my husband and I will sometimes fight over who gets to finish it! We take ours smothered in ketchup, please. Yes, that’s another weird habit I’ve picked up from the hubs. I used to think it was so weird to put salsa or ketchup on your eggs and now I’m one of those weirdos too. 😉

    Breakfast casserole is one of my favorites. My mom always makes on Christmas day, so it’s an annual treat. I don’t know why I don’t make it more often.

    I come from the rare house where casseroles were never a thing we had — like ever. So now, naturally, I am fascinated by them and how easy they can be — especially when they make a lot that can be enjoyed for weeks like this breakfast casserole. Sounds delicious!

    This looks delicious! One thing I hate about recipes is sometimes they look so difficult! I love that this recipe is made out of common ingredients and looks easy to make! I will definitely be trying this sometime in the near future!

    I love brunch! If I wasn’t trying to lose weight I would add this to my list right away….lol I am adding it anyway. I guess I will just pray that I can control myself.

    How do you suggest I incorporate potatoes?

      We’d suggest cooking hashbrowns in a skillet, add it to a bowl mixing in peppers and onions as well as whatever breakfast meat (cooked) you want and mix all together. Put in bottom of pan and pour over the egg and milk mixture. We made a similar recipe today that was delicious this way. Merry Christmas!
