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

Recipe a la A Taste of Home

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!


A little more about my favorite eggs: Egglands Best ->Compared to ordinary eggs, each Eggland’s Best large egg contains:

  • 10 times MORE vitamin E
  • 4 times MORE vitamin D
  • 3 times MORE vitamin B12
  • More than DOUBLE the Omega 3
  • 35% MORE Lutein
  • 25% LESS saturated fat
  • 60 Calories per large egg


Now it’s your turn – 

What’s your favorite breakfast casserole dish?! Please share!
