Breakfast Egg Bake Casserole

One of my favorite ways to begin my day is with a delicious breakfast casserole, such as this Breakfast Egg Bake Casserole.

I love breakfast food. Pancakes. Eggs. Sausage. Bacon. Potatoes. Biscuits. Hashbrowns. Each of these smothered with either syrup, ketchup, cheese, gravy or hot sauce are a great way to start the morning. Or end the day. Or satisfy the midday munchies. Yes, I can eat breakfast food during any time of the day.

Lately I have been pondering making a new type of breakfast casserole. Well, new to me. Breakfast casseroles are by no means a new concept but my typical breakfast casserole consists of hasbrowns, either, sausage ham or bacon, some cheese and some type of cream base for the filling (such as sour cream, cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom soup.) I stumbled upon a Brunch Egg Bake recipe over at Bizzy Bakes and decided to go with this recipe. I didn’t have all of the ingredients the recipe called for so I improvised and added what I had on hand. Please enjoy the recipe.

  1. That looks so yummy! You know I've been making that hash-brown casserole almost every weekend. I think I'm going to maybe blog it soon cause I've made some changes from a few of the suggestions you gave me. I know it's not from scratch, but it's pretty darn good. Is this for the food contest you are participating in?

  26. So how many calories are in it…

    • Hello,

      I did not calculate the calories for this recipe. I’ve done it for some of my recipes but it is very time consuming so I haven’t gotten around to updating my older recipes. You could get an estimate by entering the ingredients into a calorie counting website, such as My Fitness Pal.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    • Ok, I went ahead and made time to update the nutrition info. I’ve added it to the recipe box so you will find it there! :)
