Amish Breakfast Casserole

When the weather starts to cool I love when my fall “comfort food” favorites make their way into my cooking mix. For the most part I try to keep it clean and focus on protein, fruits and veggies but every now and then I get a little carried away with bacon and cheese. And I think that’s ok, because of three reasons:

1 – Protein / 2 – Dairy / 3 – Yum

As long I keep my main focus on eating well and staying active {which is easy to do, chasing around after Brooks all day} as the days get shorter and cooler, it’s ok to have a little extra bacon + cheese fun – especially at breakfast!

Today I wanted to share with you a yummy breakfast casserole I made over the weekend – it was a hit with my guests {not so much Charles because he doesn’t love swiss cheese} but I will defiantly be making this again, maybe with a little different cheese variety in the mix! I love a good casserole and I thought the addition of the frozen, shredded hash brown potatoes was pretty genius!

Check it out and let me know what you think:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook 1 lb. sliced + diced bacon and 1 medium chopped onion over medium heat until bacon is crisp; drain. In a large bowl, combine 6 Eggland’s Best large eggs, lightly beaten, 4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed, 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, 1-1/2 cups  4% cottage cheese and 1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese; stir in bacon mixture. Transfer to a greased 13 x 9-in. baking dish.
  2. Bake, uncovered, 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Makes about 12 servings

This is an awesome casserole dish because you can pretty much make it, easy peasy in a few minutes – throw it in the oven and you are good to go! And just like any other casserole – you can add or take away any of the ingredients, but I’m here to tell you that this exact mixture was all sorts of awesome!
