Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole

Christmas morning isn’t Christmas morning unless I am eating one of my dad’s famous homemade cinnamon rolls. They are a family tradition. Josh loves my dad’s cinnamon rolls, everyone does, but Christmas morning for Josh means BACON! Josh loves bacon and insists on making his favorite breakfast casserole: my Bacon, Potato, and Egg Casserole every Christmas. I don’t mind because he does all of the work and there is always room for another tradition, especially a food tradition. The more the merrier on Christmas!

This is the perfect egg casserole for Christmas morning because it is easy to make, feeds a crowd, and everyone loves it! And, it has bacon. Loads of it. Our boys’ eyes light up like the lights on our Christmas tree when they hear the word bacon:)

This easy breakfast casserole is filled with Wright Brand Naturally Smoked Applewood Bacon, cheddar cheese, and potatoes. Josh also adds onion, red pepper, and garlic for flavor.

Josh loves using Wright Brand Bacon because it is hand selected, hand trimmed, and hand smoked. Every slice is thick and hearty. He puts bacon in the egg casserole AND on top. Bacon lovers rejoice! 🙂

  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook until it is a nice crispy brown. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate. Roughly chop the bacon and set aside.
  • Add the onion and red pepper to the skillet and cook over medium heat until tender. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs and whisk in the milk. Stir in the cooked vegetables, potatoes, and 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Set ¾ cup of bacon aside and stir in the rest. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top remaining cheese and green onions. Bake for 20 minutes so the eggs start to set up. Carefully add the remaining bacon to the top of the casserole. Bake for an additional 20 tot 30 minutes or until the eggs are firm and the top is slightly golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm.
  • Note: This casserole can be made in advance. Pour the mixture in the pan and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Bake when ready to eat. You can also reheat the casserole.

    So easy to make ahead. Served it at a brunch with lots of hungry teenaged boys and they demolished it. Made it again for Christmas morning. So so good.

    I started making this casserole about four years ago and it is my absolute GOTO! Everyone loves it at work and at home. It is easy to make and so so good.

    I made this with cauliflower instead of potatoes to lower the carbs and it was delicious. I bet it taste even better with potatoes.

  4. If we used our own sliced potatoes, instead of frozen, would this make a difference on cooking time? Or do you suggest precook the potatoes and add them in for the 50 minute cook time?

    1. If you are using fresh potatoes, I would pre-cook them a little before adding to the casserole. Just make sure they aren’t fully cooked or they will get mushy.

    1. You can reheat in the oven in a baking dish at 350. Bake until heated through, don’t over cook. The time will vary depending the portion you are rehating. You can reheat individual portions in the microwave.

    Love this recipe! Family just loved it too! Thank you so much~ What do you think of putting in frozen hashbrown potatoes instead of dice potatoes?
    Would the cook time be the same ? thank you in advance for your time!

    1. You can use shredded hashbrowns. They might cook a little faster, but I am guessing it will be close to the same time.

    1. You can serve in individual portions. Wrap in plastic wrap and then foil. Place in freezer container or bag and freeze. Thaw and reheat!

    This was a hit at our breakfast potluck at work. I felt like I needed to make it for the family too! I feel like there is room for experimentation with this and also I added jalapeño and mushroom as I had it on hand and they needed to be used up. Turned out great! Thank you for sharing, this will make it in my permanent rotation.

  7. Hello! I apologize if I missed it, but what’s the best way to freeze? Should I bake and reheat or freeze before baking?

    Thank you!

    1. After completely being baked and then frozen- how do you recommend reheating- just 350 until warm? Maybe 30 min? Thanks!

  8. I have made this recipe two times and the second time, I used frozen diced potatoes instead of shredded has browns and it really made a difference. It was great both times but I would advise using the cubed potatoes. I love this recipe and all the men that eat my food LOVE it as well!!! (I have THREE adult sons that sometimes eat with me!) SOOOOO good!

    Made half of this for three of us this Easter. We loved it! The bacon was a nice change from casseroles k usually make. Easy & yummy for ages 15,45,& 52 🙂

    Great recipe, was a crowd pleaser! I doubled the amount of bacon though and did drain some of the grease before adding veggies, came out excellent. Simple and flavorful!

    It’s delicious. The only thing I didn’t like is the garlic. So, I’ll leave that out next time.

    I made this recipe as listed. Made the night before & cooked the next morning. The cook time was perfect. Casserole was good. It’s not the typical hash brown casserole. It’s more like a quiche.
