Easy Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Sunday, April 11, 2021
This "Easy Breakfast Casserole" takes so much less time to make and the whole family feeds quickly because everything is all baked in one pan.

This recipe uses simple ingredients starting with refrigerator biscuits or thin sliced bread and it's very basic so you can add whatever you like or leave it plain or add my several suggestions below.

Just mix the eggs, add cooked meats, a good melthing cheese, any kind of vegetables you like, and voila, breakfast is made easy.

The kids absolutely love this for breakfast and it sure frees up a lot of your time cooking.

The biscuits bake up high topped with anything your family likes baked inside and if using any kind of bread cooks up crunchy.

You may also like to try our Homemade Sausage and Cheddar Biscuits, they're so yummy.

When we do a brunch I do leave this with eggs, biscuits cheese, and tater tots, then just set up a breakfast bar for toppings that always take care of picky eaters!

Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast Casserole

This is a breakfast casserole with a crust made out of refrigerator biscuits. Then a mixture of eggs, meats, or vegetables with cheese is poured over the topped and baked for an all-in-one breakfast meal.
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 25 MinTotal time: 35 Min


  • 1 package of 10 buttermilk or enough to thinly line an oil sprayed baking casserole (13 x9, large round, or use two 9 x 9 and freeze one)
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup milk or half and half cheese1 1/2 cups cheese of choice1/2 cup chopped meats of choice1 cup shredded hash browns or tater tots thawed( I use the browned version)
  • Cheese Suggestions (shredded or slices)::
  • extra sharp cheddar, provolone, swiss, colby, jack with jalapeno, mozzarella, or another kind you prefer
  • Meat Suggestions: add 1/2 cup or more cooked chopped meats:
  • Italian sausage, steak hot capicola ham, fried crispy bacon, Canadian bacon, breakfast sausage, or pepperoni.
  • Vegetables of choice add around 1/2 cup chopped:
  • Eggplant, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, roasted peppers, tomatoes, grated hash browns potatoes, escarole, jalapenos, or olives.
  • Note: Any vegetable combos go together well, however, (using all vegetables you will need to squeeze out the liquid of several of them before adding as this will make it too runny )


  1. Spread dough to fit thinly in oil sprayed greased pan, such as a or rectangle pan, disposable foil pans, individual greased cupcake tins, a deep casserole pan works well.
  2. Stretch the dough out into your preferred pan and pre-bake dough for 5 minutes at 350 degrees until set not browned.
  3. Beat the eggs add some salt, pepper, and if you like heat, cayenne pepper, or hot sauce.
  4. Tip: I like a little granulated garlic powder in my eggs and parsley.
  5. First add some cheese on the bottom, then potatoes if using, meat then more cheese on top.
  6. Pour your egg mixture over the top of the dough, then add whatever ingredients, (meat or vegetables) you like topping with shredded cheese of choice.
  7. Sprinkle with more cheese if choice and bakes at 400 degrees until brown. around 20 minutes.
  8. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
  9. Note: all meats must be pre-cooked before adding to this breakfast casserole unless they are deli-cooked meats.
  10. If you can't get refrigerator biscuits in your area use thin-sliced bread and do not pre-cook for 5 minutes.
