Bacon and Eggs Casserole Recipe

Bacon and Eggs Casserole Recipe

Because it requires so little time to prepare and is such a great hit with family and friends alike, this is a favorite of mine to make for brunches. Served with a fruit salad, hot muffins and croissants, it's excellent for an after-church brunch. —Deanna Durward-Orr, Windsor, Ontario

"Made this as written and it was a bit bland to me. However it is a fantastic base recipe! Second time I halved the recipe, used an 8x8 pan, subbed half the milk for heavy cream, added a pinch of cajun seasoning and some ground mustard and pepper. Added two extra slices of bacon but didn't put those on until he last five minutes of baking. Reheats well! Going to try this with sausage next week. Thank you!"

"Delicious. Just one question/comment. Eggs were a little bit watery but seemed cooked. Suggestions?"

"It was great. I did add more bacon and cheese as a personal preference - sprinkled some cheese on top as well. I didn't have fresh chives so I sprinkled some dried chopped onions and freeze dried chives and it tasted good. Used nonfat dried milk as it was all I had at home. Great recipe thanks for sharing it with us. We ate it on Sunday then cut it up in squares in zip lock baggies and took to heat and eat at work. It was very good and a great quick breakfast for work days"

"This is my go-to recipe during the cold winter months! My family loves this dish, and I change it up by adding cooked sausage or diced ham. You can also make it a "western" version by adding sauteed onions and green peppers. Depending on your seasoning preference, you can add cumin, curry or Adobo all-purpose seasoning."

"I add flavor to this old standby by using 1 t Lawry's salt & 1 t salt and skip the pepper. I omit the onions as well and usually put the cheese on top to melt. Delicious main dish and also great for cutting into squares or rounds for sandwiches (sausage-egg biscuits, egg and cheese croissants, egg bagels, even breakfast burritos. Very versatile and always well liked!"

"Made this this morning. Didn't have the green onions so I left them out. Mixing the sour cream smooth was a bit of a challenge, I wonder if I should have used a mixer? I would mix the milk with the sour cream separately next time to see if that helps. I cut the recipe in half and used a 9 x 9 pan. Baked perfect in 45 minutes. I would add one more slice of bacon next time (3 instead of 2 for a half recipe). Not as good as the brunch casserole recipe I inherited from Mom, but it is lot easier to make so it is a keeper!"
