Breakfast Casserole

Featured at:

 Ms. enPlace

We love breakfast for dinner.  I must admit adding breakfast to the meal plan once per week was a great idea!  Breakfast is usually a good money saver and it is always a good filling meal around here.  This breakfast casserole is gobbled up quickly in our house so I always make some extra so we can have leftovers.

 I like to roughly chop up some of the leftovers to make super quick breakfast burritos in the morning.  Just add some extra cheese, salsa, and a dab of sour cream and you are set to go!  So if you don't want leftovers feel free to halve the recipe because the full amount makes a ton!  


Breakfast Casserole
32 oz potatoes o'brien, defrosted
2 cups diced ham
12 oz shredded cheddar cheese
4 green onions, sliced
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp pepper
  • Grease a 9x13 pan and place potatoes in the pan
  • Top with ham, green onions, and cheddar cheese
  • In a small bowl mix eggs, milk, salt, and pepper
  • Pour egg mixture over the potatoes (I like to give everything a gentle, quick stir to get the egg mixture in the bottom)
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, until eggs are set and the top is beginning to brown
How easy is that?!?  You could definitely make this with bacon or sausage instead of ham and add extra veggies if you want.  I think this is good with some bell pepper and even some chopped baby spinach.  Yum!    Everyone here likes to top theirs with salsa, except the little guy he likes his with ketchup (everything has to have ketchup on it now...lol).

  4. I like to plan breakfast for dinner every couple of weeks, but I always end up making the same thing. Thanks for a new idea, Erika. Anything with potatoes and green onion gets thumbs up from me. Thanks for linking with See Ya in the Gumbo again this week.

    1. It can definitely be challenging to switch it up. It seems we all have our breakfast favorites that keep making their way to the meal plan :) This one is so versatile that I try to have some combination of it each month and no complaints so far!
