Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole

Christmas morning isn’t Christmas morning unless I am eating one of my dad’s famous homemade cinnamon rolls. They are a family tradition. Josh loves my dad’s cinnamon rolls, everyone does, but Christmas morning for Josh means BACON! Josh loves bacon and insists on making his favorite breakfast casserole: my Bacon, Potato, and Egg Casserole every Christmas. I don’t mind because he does all of the work and there is always room for another tradition, especially a food tradition. The more the merrier on Christmas!

The “B” in Breakfast Casserole is for…Bacon!

This is the perfect egg casserole for Christmas morning because it is easy to make, feeds a crowd, and everyone loves it! And, it has bacon. Loads of it. Our boys’ eyes light up like the lights on our Christmas tree when they hear the word bacon:)

This easy breakfast casserole is filled with Wright Brand Naturally Smoked Applewood Bacon, cheddar cheese, and potatoes. Josh also adds onion, red pepper, and garlic for flavor.

Josh loves using Wright Brand Bacon because it is hand selected, hand trimmed, and hand smoked. Every slice is thick and hearty. He puts bacon in the egg casserole AND on top. Bacon lovers rejoice! 🙂

  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook until it is a nice crispy brown. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate. Roughly chop the bacon and set aside.
  • Add the onion and red pepper to the skillet and cook over medium heat until tender. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs and whisk in the milk. Stir in the cooked vegetables, potatoes, and 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Set ¾ cup of bacon aside and stir in the rest. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top remaining cheese and green onions. Bake for 20 minutes so the eggs start to set up. Carefully add the remaining bacon to the top of the casserole. Bake for an additional 20 tot 30 minutes or until the eggs are firm and the top is slightly golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm.
  • Note: This casserole can be made in advance. Pour the mixture in the pan and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Bake when ready to eat. You can also reheat the casserole.

    Absolutely Delicious! Cut recipe in half, baked the next morning. Only change: used minimal garlic. Thank you so much for sharing.

    I invite my in-laws over for brunch every year on my husband’s birthday and this year I made this dish using leftover ham in place of the bacon. Everyone loved it, it was a huge success. There were only two servings left and we had them the next morning. Just as tasty the next day.

  3. This did take much longer to cook for me. I cooked per instructions for 20 minutes,then another 30. Eggs were still runny. It wasn’t the cheese. Put in for another 15 minutes, still not done. So now it’s in for another 20. Hopefully that will do it. Can’t wait to try it.

    1. That was my experience every time I’ve ever made it….I started making this in 2020 and it was a huge success at every wrestling tournament or family gathering! Of course I tweet it here and there with different meats but it never let’s me down!

  4. Hi! I’m excited to try this. I think I’m going to cook in advance, but afraid it may dry out. Any suggestions? How long do you recommend reheating for?

  5. 5 stars
    I made this on Christmas morning and it was a hit! Omitted the red peppers since my aunt is not a fan of them, and it was still super savory. Making it again this evening for brinner! Great recipe! 🙂

  6. I made this dish for my husband’s birthday brunch on Christmas Eve. I made it the night before and used leftover ham instead of bacon. It was a huge success. I plan on using this recipe again often.

    1. Definitely. I don’t thaw, just microwave, and sometimes air fry after microwave. Not as good as prefrozen, but makes perfect breakfast burrito filling.

    2. I’m subbing the bacon with ham. Can I skip cooking veggies before baking? Won’t it cook in the oven with the egg mixture?

    I love this recipe! I make it once a week. The whole family loves it. This is so much easier than fixing a big breakfast. I substituted hot sausage for the bacon and added jalapenos and a zesty garlic blend instead of minced garlic. Thanks for the great time saving recipe!

    HELP! I use these egg casserole recipes a lot. Love them! I could really use some advice, though. I would like to cook them in an 18x12x2 pan rather than a 9×13. Can this be done? What adjustments in time and temperature are necessary? Thanks much!

    1. You would be better off making a large amount in two 13 x 9 pans. In a larger pan the edges will be way overdone by the time the center is cooked.

    Love the recipe and so does the family. Is there any way to change the measurements to English or Australian measurements from the American? ie. Fahrenheit to Celcius and lb pounds to kilos etc? It sure would make cooking a lot simpler for folks in the Southern Hemisphere.
    Thank you for considering my question, and hopefully, there is an easy answer.
    Kind regards
    and thank you for all of your wonderful recipes!

    1. Just look up the conversion on the internet. I keep a printed copy from metric to American weights and measures on my fridge.

    Made this for Easter brunch! What a hit! I cooked the day before and reheated it. My one daughter took just about all the leftovers home! It was just what I needed to complete my brunch menu. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I made this for our Easter breakfast at church. It was a big hit and it’s very delicious.

  12. 5 stars
    I made it for a function…huge hit. I will make it again and use different variations with ham, sausage, etc. Awesome!!!

  13. I only had fresh potatoes (not frozen) so I parboiled and diced them and then put them on the bottom of the dish. Then I layered in the bacon, veggies, and cheese and poured the egg mixture over the top. Turned out delicious!

  14. Amazing recipe wish I could attach pics of my masterpiece x3 (for JMU tailgate tomorrow) but on what planet can someone prep this in 15 minutes???

  15. Hi Maria, I’ve made this recipe in the past as printed. However, today, I only have hash brown potatoes. Can I use that? And would I use the same quantity? We love this casserole…it goes a long way and is delicious for any time we are hungry!

  16. Really good! Even my picky toddler enjoyed it. When I imputed the individual items into my fitness pal, the individual servings came out to a little over 350 calories a serving, so be aware if you are watching calories that using generic values will be a hundred calories more per serving (which with the amount of bacon makes more sense).

    Delicious! For those with certain allergies, I substituted oat milk for regular milk, shallots for the onion, and omitted the garlic. It was as excellent as the original version!

    This recipe was very nice. I cut it down to 1/4 size for just two of us. I used garlic powder and Old Bay seasoning and it was just right, no extra salt needed. This came out nice and light and it was not dry. Thank you for sharing.

  19. I’m up to about an hour cooking. The eggs are still runny in the middle at the time listed.

    Can’t wait to try it!!

    Delicious. Thank you! This is the best tasting breakfast casserole I’ve ever made! I did make a few minor changes: I didn’t have Frozen potatoes so I just cut fresh potatoes and roasted them slightly in the air fryer with some broccoli and this time I had a little leftover cauliflower that I threw in, as I desired more veggies. Also, I used beef bacon. I’m making my second one this morning, it’s becoming a weekly bake in my house that we eat for days! So so good!
