About this Recipe

This breakfast casserole is the easiest and tastiest way to make breakfast for a crowd. The best part? You can make the entire recipe in advance and it reheats deliciously. Bacon, onions, bell pepper, and garlic cook together before they’re folded into a mixture of eggs, whole milk, sharp cheddar cheese, and frozen diced potatoes. Yep - you read that right: frozen potatoes. If you prefer to use fresh potatoes, be sure to cut them into a small dice and cook beforehand. Serve the breakfast casserole while warm with your favorite hot sauce or fresh herbs.

Ingredients

  • ½ lb bacon, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 medium-sized red bell peppers, diced
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 cups frozen diced potatoes (often labeled as frozen diced hash brown potatoes - no need to thaw)
  • 2½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Hot sauce or fresh herbs for serving (optional)
