I came up with this unique breakfast dish after looking for a way to use up a few extra no-boil lasagna noodles. Try switching up the different cheeses—Swiss, pepper jack and mozzarella taste delicious in this breakfast lasagna, too! —Susan Kieboam, Streetsboro, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 3 no-cook lasagna noodles
  • 3 bacon strips, diced
  • 2 tablespoons diced sweet or green onion
  • 2 tablespoons diced sweet red pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • CHEESE SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons whole-milk ricotta cheese

Directions

  1. Soak lasagna noodles in warm water for 20 minutes. In a small skillet, cook bacon, onion and red pepper over medium heat until bacon is crisp, 8-10 minutes. Remove 2 tablespoons bacon mixture and drain on paper towels; reserve. Whisk eggs into skillet; cook and stir until cooked through.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. For cheese sauce, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Add milk, Parmesan cheese and salt; cook and stir until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir cheddar cheese into hot mixture until smooth.
  3. Drain noodles on paper towels. To assemble lasagna, spread 3 tablespoons cheese sauce over bottom of a greased 8x4-in. loaf pan. Layer with one lasagna noodle, 3 tablespoons cheese sauce, half the egg mixture and another lasagna noodle. Layer with 3 tablespoons cheese sauce, ricotta cheese and remaining egg mixture. Top with the third noodle, remaining cheese sauce and reserved bacon mixture.
  4. Bake until bubbly, 10-15 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before cutting.
