So I’ve been a mother for 6 years and 4 months now and I’ve never had breakfast in bed. As time goes on, I’m pretty okay with that–I love, love, love my husband, but most of you know about my egg aversion issues (by the way, after Sara posted her egg-blowing tutorial, my brain recovered a horrible repressed memory from a 4-H activity  when I was 10 and I blew out an egg for the first time and then promptly lost my lunch) and breakfast in bed usually involves eggs and eggs really aren’t his forte.

But for all you ladies who would love breakfast in bed, I think you should email this post to your significant others. Or create an anonymous email address to send the link to plant the idea in their brains. And maybe the anonymous email should include that this recipe needs to be assembled the night before, so you would also need a People magazine, a pedicure, and dinner alone on Saturday night while he whips this together. Just sayin’.

This recipe is beyond easy. Minimal chopping. Pre-cut potatoes. Incredibly delicious (seriously, when our family ate this for the first time, my pickiest eater, who is also a potato-hater, yelled, “THIS IS AWESOME!”) and, like I said, can be made the night before and then popped into the oven in the morning.

You’ll need Southern/country-style hash brown potatoes (the cubes, not the shreds), eggs, milk, bacon, green onions, pepper jack cheese (I promise, this doesn’t come out too spicy), cheddar cheese, and a little salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the bacon. All of it. The whole package. This is how you know things can’t go wrong. You can either cook it in the oven or on the stove top; the oven is my favorite way to cook bacon, but you’re going to be using the bacon drippings a little later, so if you’d rather just do it all in one pan, that’s up to you.

While the bacon is cooking, place the potatoes in a 9×13″ or a deep-dish 9″ pie plate. Mix together the cheeses and sprinkle those on top of the potatoes. When the bacon is done, place it on a paper towel to drain and reserve about 2 tablespoons of the drippings.  Cook the chopped green onions in the drippings over medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until they’re tender and fragrant. Spread them on top of the cheese mixture.

Crumble the bacon and sprinkle that on top of the green onions. Um, in case you guys ever doubted, I love bacon so much.

Look at it?! How could you not love it? Carly, you know I’m talking to you.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, and a little salt and pepper. If things are going to get tricky, this is where because you don’t really know how salty the bacon and cheese are and you can’t taste the mixture. But I think about 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt is probably good (you can always add more later) and about 10 turns of freshly ground black pepper.

Whisking constantly, pour the egg/milk mixture all over the potatoes and bacon.

Cover it up and refrigerate it overnight (or, if you’re making breakfast for dinner, do this first thing in the morning and then it will be ready by dinner time).

When you’re ready to bake it, preheat the oven to 350. Bake it up, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly but not burned. Remove from the oven and let it stand for about 15 minutes (if you cut into it sooner, it will be a little runny and icky looking). Serve with fresh fruit, orange juice, a jelly jar full of flowers from the yard, and lots of hugs and kisses. Serves 6-8.

    This looks so good! Just a quick question: Will the potatoes thaw while preparing the other ingredients and while waiting in the refrigerator before baking? Or should I thaw them before I start preparation?

    Also, do you know how to make the cute little degrees symbol after your temperature settings (i.e., 350º)? Alt 167. That’s it. Just thought I’d share.

    • 1.1

      Missy–AWESOME!! Thanks so much for the info! :)

      As far as the potatoes go, they probably won’t thaw in time–I’d stick them in the fridge a day or two before you plan on making this (or gasp, leave them on the counter for a few hours).

    Ok this looks like a keeper~ Has anyone tried this with sausage? I’ve got a killer wheat sausage recipe and would love to try it with this. Bacon will be totally wonderful, just trying to find different ways to sneak wheat into my family’s diet.

    I’m totally making this for myself…with sausage. Haha. Sorry, not a bacon lover here either. But everything else in it makes me want to drool!

    I’m guess that’s the reason why my potato dishes always turn out with a funny consistancy, I never thaw the potatoes first…good to know!

    Happy Mother’s Day Kate & Sara! Thanks for making the cooking lives of even us non-mom’s tastier!

    I think I will be taking your advice and emailing this to the hubs! I LOVE breakfast casseroles and this looks right up my alley. I love eggs and pretty much any combination of eggs, cheese, breakfast meat and potatoes. :)

    Karalee says:

    YUMMY!!!! Can this be done with real potatoes cut into chunks and not the frozen kind? The frozen chunks are really hard to find in a one store town!!

    • 10.1

      Karalee–I’m sure you could, you might just need to partially cook them first (either parboil or underbake them). I think if you tried doing raw potatoes, they’d take too long.

    • 10.2
      kaimuki says:

      I’ve done similar dishes with broken up frozen french fries (couldn’t find the diced at the store) if the potatoes are still frozen it just takes a little longer in the oven, but its better if you give them a chance to thaw for a day in the fridge first.

  11. 11
    Jen says:

    Will this work with potatoes diced small? I have an extra bag of potatoes left over and I need to use them up. How many potatoes do you think it’d take?

    Heather Bare says:

    Will this work with shredded hashbrowns too? I don’t like to bite into potato chunks.

    Jen Rock says:

    I make this at home and the family LOVES it, but instead of bacon….I used little bits of ham and instead of the scallions on top…I use Potatoes O’Brien (frozen potatoes with bits of peppers & onions. NUMMY NUMMY!!!!

  15. 15
    Tracey says:

    I’ve made a very similar dish, but with the meat (sausage, ham or bacon) on the bottom layer of the pan, and I brown the hash browns in oil prior to putting them in the baking dish. This gives the potatoes a great flavor :)

    Miranda says:

    i wonder if this would work if I did it in the crock pot?

  17. 17

    Yum, I love bacon, too. And I love a good brinner (breakfast for dinner) recipe! What if I wanted to make it in a 9×13 casserole dish? Just a bit more of all of the ingredients or is the recipe as it is now enough to fill a casserole dish?

    • 17.1

      Anna, you could totally do it the way it is in a 9×13″ dish, no need to change any of the proportions. I just like it in a smaller dish because then every little bit of the top has bacon on it. :)

    • 17.2
      Andrea says:

      I think that if you bake it in a 9×13, though, you would need to cook it for a lot less time, and it wouldn’t be as thick. A 9 inch pie plate has almost half the area of a 9×13 pan. It would be kind of like baking a cake in a 9×13 when it’s really meant for an 8×8 (which has almost the same area as a 9 inch pie plate).

  18. 18

    I have never had good luck with breakfast casseroles. But I have had good luck with everything I have tried from yall’s site so I am sure this one will turn out great when I make it!

    Carrie says:

    Your recipe says to refrigerate overnight. Does it HAVE to refrigerate all night? Can I whip it up and stick it in the oven right away or will it not turn out right?

    • 22.1

      Carrie–It definitely does better when it sits for a little while; the potatoes soak in some of the moisture. But worst case scenario, it would still be good if you stuck it straight in the oven (if you can, try to let it sit for a little while at least, just to let things settle and redistribute).

    i <3 bacon!!! i can't wait to try this recipe!!

  24. 24
    Sarah says:

    do you think that someone who only likes bacon A LITTLE would find the bacon overpowering? sometimes I dont like how salty bacon is so I didnt know if having all of that would be too much and take away from the dish (for me). but it looks like the casserole is pretty thick so maybe only a thin layer of bacon wouldn’t be too bad. also, is this a type of thing that would be freezer friendly? and this brings me to my other question — is bacon an okay thing to freeze (like just the bacon). I’m young and not married yet so a lot of food items I buy go bad before I’m able to use them

    • 24.1

      I think if you only like bacon a little, I would either bake it in a 9×13″ dish to spread it out a little more or cut back on it and use something like smoked paprika (you should be able to find it in the spice aisle) to help make up some of the flavor that you’re losing. But yeah, it is a thick casserole and when it comes down to it, you’re really not getting that much. You could also look for a low-sodium bacon if the salt bothers you.

      You can definitely freeze this. And yes, you can freeze bacon, too–I do it all the time when I find it on sale! :)

      • amber says:

        After frozen, how would you reccommend reheating single servings? what about the whole dish?

  25. 25

    Oh. My. Goodness.
    I’m making this as soon as possible! Or hubby is… YUM!!!!

    Melissa L. says:

    Kate… you remind me of some friends of mine who were vegetarians… EXCEPT for bacon! LOL! We always have bacon in the fridge; I do a whole package in the oven, then my teenager heats up a couple of slices (couple… ha ha ha) in the microwave in the morning (often with your most-awesome blueberry muffins that I keep in the freezer). Anyway, due to an egg-issue myself around the 4th grade, they aren’t my favorite either, but I’ll give this a try… bacon, taters & cheese… what’s to go wrong?!

    Do you think I could freeze this, if so, before or after baking it? p.s. I love your website and always use your recipes when company comes over. That way I know they will enjoy dinner :)

    • 31.1

      I’m sure you could, either way, I just don’t know how long you’d need to bake it if you froze it uncooked. If it was already cooked, it was just need to be thawed and then reheated.

  32. 32
    Cami says:

    Love this! My family loves a similar recipe but with sausage. I’ll have to try it with the bacon. The only difference is that I throw my frozen potatoes in the oven for about 15 minutes before adding the other ingredients to the pan. This eliminates having to pre-thaw the potatoes. So if you’re not good at planning ahead (like me) you can still make it. Thanks for all the great recipes!

    Kathy M says:

    You know if you are ever up for a challenge, I’d love to find a breakfast casseroly type thing that doesn’t involve cheese or milk. My son is allergic (I’ve mentioned that before). He loves eggs and bacon and sausage and hashbrowns and on occasion I’ll be nice and make that for him. However, I’d love to create something I could make for a brunch. Everything has cheese in it on some form or another. THis looks so yummy!

    • 39.1
      Kristique says:

      Have you ever looked into the vegan cheeses they have out there? They are usually named something cute like “cheeze” to differentiate them from actual cheese and contain no dairy products. I haven’t tried many myself as I have no allergies and love the real stuff, but I do seem to recall seeing some that were touted on the packaging as “better melting than before” or something of that nature. If it satisfies the cravings of vegans, it might make do in a pinch for your son! I’ve seen the products at local supermarkets (Publix, Winn-Dixie) in the organic food part of the produce section, but you can also probably find them at Whole Foods or Trader Joes. Good luck! Cheese (or cheeze) is such a wonderful addition to breakfast foods that I sincerely hope you find a good substitute so your son doesn’t have to miss out! :)

    Rachelle says:

    I made this tonight using ham instead of bacon. And it wasn’t because I don’t LOVE me some bacon, but I had ham I really needed to use, and let’s face it, it really is much better for you. And the verdict: Very, very good. I didn’t sauté the onions in fat (well, there was no fat) and so those got a little on the dry side. Next time I would layer them underneath the cheese so I prevent that drying out. The ham got a little crispy on the edges, which I love and the kids loved it too! Thanks!!

    Sarah says:

    I saw my store was having a buy 1 get 1 free REFRIGERATED cubed potato sale (I only needed 1 so it was like it being 50% off) and there was almost exactly 4 cups in a bag..soo happy (so maybe others can find some in the refrigerated section). the only type they had left was cubed with onions, which I didnt think was bad since the recipe calls for green onions anyways so I just added a little less green onions. Question, do you HAVE to refrigerate it before putting in the oven? I was making this planning on putting it in the oven right after until I kept reading the directions..good thing I was making it a little earlier than I needed it so I will have it in the fridge for only a few hours.. but I wasn’t sure

  42. 42
    Sarah says:

    another question (sorry I ask a lot), how come in your recipes that call for bacon you also add in salt? doesn’t bacon naturally have a lot of salt so you dont need to add more in?

  43. 43
    Breanna says:

    I just StumbledUpon your site and I’m glad I did! I love breakfast food, especially if it contains bacon and potatoes.
    I’ll be trying this soon for sure but I think I’ll add green bell pepper with the onions (or buy the refrigerated potatoes that have peppers and onions mixed in) and, after letting the mixture cool a bit, I’ll mix directly with the potatoes before topping with cheese. I may also try with turkey bacon since that is what I have in my refrigerator right now.

You are helping to make my life (and that of my hubby and kiddos) very tasty.

    can you make this without the milk…maybe extra eggs instead?

      Kristique says:

      I would try it with some soy milk or unsweetened unflavored almond milk. You don’t want to lose that creaminess that milk adds! Admittedly, I have not tried this recipe with substitutes, but I just wanted to suggest it in case it works well for you :)

    Rachel says:

    Just made this for mothers day breakfast, and it is totally watery! The taste is good and I love the idea. Also the potatoes aren’t done all the way. I defrosted them and even par-steamed them. Still not all the way done. I will try this again with 1/4 c milk and completely cooked potatoes.

    Amanda says:

    I NEVER eat stuff like this. . . I’m kind of a health freak, but my husband is Afghanistan, so I put this together yesterday then baked it this morning for my own Mother’s day breakfast. I needed a little comfort food. :) I used Alexia rosemary and olive oil oven reds, chopped them up once they were thawed and they were SO yummy in this! Very delicious recipe! My kids didn’t want to eat it, but oh well! Thanks for the idea for comfort food!

    Delish breakfast casserole~approved by the “I-don’t-like-breakfast-casseroles-husband”! I think it could us another egg or two, and has anyone ever used fresh, slighly cooked fresh potatoes? I bet that would make it even tastier as I don’t care too much for frozen hashbrowns.

    I made this for Mother’s day brunch and an extra one for my bf to take to his friend’s house… (It was a bribe to get him out of the house so we could have a girls day) It was so easy and turned out FANTASTIC! Thank you for this wonderful suggestion. I served it with a berry/pear fruit salad, mimosas and a dallop of sour cream.

    Also for those with the watery/undercooked comments, this happened to mine too. It needed another 30 min in the oven, but after that was perfect… YUM!

    Heather P says:

    I made this for a Mother’s Day brunch that I had for some friends on Friday. Everyone raved. And for me for Mother’s Day? My husband did a great job of reheating it in the microwave and serving me. Just as delish as 3-day-old left-overs as it was fresh out of the oven. This will definately be a recipe that sticks around in our house!

  52. 52
    Nicole M. says:

    I made this for Mother’s Day and it turned out great with the exception of the potatoes. They were a bit undercooked. I used the Simply Potatoes from the refrigerated section. Since the bag was a bit less than 4 cups, I also bought a bag of frozen Ore-Ida Postates with onion and peppers. These potatoes were cut in cubes, but much smaller than the Simply Potatoes. They cooked much better. Next time, I will use those for the entire 4 cups of potatoes. If you use the Simply potatoes, you will need to cut them smaller in order for them to cook.

    A HUGE hit – thumbs up all around. The kids usually aren’t big fans of breakfast casseroles BUT…this was heavy on potatoes – no soggy bread and BACON! LOVE it! Any suggestions for getting more of the flavor mixed in with the potatoes on the bottom? Possibly toss the potatoes together with the cheeses? One of my children suggested we replace the pepper with Old Bay.

    • 59.1

      Susan–Yeah, you could just toss everything together before popping it in the oven. Or…you could saute the potatoes for a few minutes in the rendered bacon grease. Shhhh. Don’t tell your doctor I told you that. :)

    Josie says:

    I am making this for dinner tonight but we aren’t green onion fans over here, and I was wondering if I should just omit the onions, or if I should do something to substitute the loss of that flavor! Thanks, you guys are the best!!

    • 60.1
      sara says:

      Josie, you could substitute some diced yellow, white, or red onion, or a little grated onion, or even some onion powder. All of those would add the flavor without the green :)

I liked comment about tater tots and may try that next time.

    Mary Beth says:

    I love breakfast casseroles and tried this one because of the bacon (my guy loves bacon!). Good flavor but I think it could use more eggs/milk. It was a bit dry initially but I added more milk and reheated it 2 days later and it was much better. I’ll definitely try again but will add another egg or two. FYI, the Idaho Sunrise is one of our favorites for breakfast now. If you haven’t tried that one you’re missing out!!!

    Made this for a ladies brunch today and it was sooo good, the best breakfast casserole I have ever had. I cooked the potatoes in the bacon grease definitely a must. I also added one additional egg and kept the milk at 2/3 cup. I live in Salt Lake in the hills, so high elevation. Thanks Kate!

    becca says:

    Great idea! I just made this with some modifications for my preferences. I used potatoes o’brien hashbrowns, a 9×13 pan, an extra egg and about 1/3 cup more milk, red onion diced finely instead of green, and extra cheese and, and I didn’t completely stirr the ingredients but I kind of mixed them in the dish. I also covered @ 375 and then about 30-40 minutes. It was nicely brown around the edges like I like it and potatoes and eggs were cooked to perfection! Thanks for the recipe def a keeper

    I just wondered about how many should this serve? Especially if we’re pigs, and i’m also making your overnight cinnamon rolls recipe.. There’s about 6-8 people coming and I don’t know if I should double it!

    Can it be refrigerated longer than 8 hrs? I am making it now for tomorrow morning. I need to know if I should bake it tonight after 8 hrs, or if it’ll be just as good in 20 hrs.

    I’ve made this twice and the only thing I don’t use is the onions and I have to cook it for almost an hour and a half… I use a stoneware pie pan and my aunt who I got the recipe from had no problem. I’m a little disappointed about having problems cooking the casserole. But it does taste great when it does cook properly!

    Prepared for Christmas morning with some changes. It was fantastic and everyone raved about it! I used 5 eggs and an additional 1/2 cup milk. Only one cup of cheddar and no other cheese. My cooked scallions looked wilty and unappetizing, so I tossed them out and put fresh scallions instead. Remaining ingredients/instructions the same. Thank you so much! This is now a Christmas staple!

    Made this for back-to-school breakfast today. Used 3 med russet potatoes, diced them up, microwaved them for a few mins to partially cook them, but otherwise followed the recipe, and it worked perfectly. Tasty! Only thing I would do differently next time is a bit more salt & pepper on the potatoes since the store bought ones would have had more seasoning already, and my potatoes could’ve used a heavier hand. Oh, and would skip the green onions –not because I don’t like them–but because my picky kiddo objected to them (sigh). Thanks!

    I made this and it was delish! I have never really liked egg casserole things. The only issue I had was that the potatoes were not cooked thru and my potatoes were completely thawed for the recipe. Next time I would par cook potatoes. This reheated well also.

    I am going to make this for Sunday morning. First of all, what size is the lovely dish your made your casserole in? What do you thin about using the pre-cooked bacon? Do you think I could add spinach and/or fresh mushroons? And what could I sub for pepper jack cheese?

    Kate, do you think this would be okay if made a couple of days ahead of time? I’m wanting to make it for my parents this weekend but will need to prep it Thursday! Will it have sogginess issues do you think? I’m excited to make it! Love all that bacon. Thanks!

    I made this for Fathers Day weekend this morning and the eggs were still very runny and not cooked all the way. I had to stick this back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes. I used the pie pan so maybe that had something to do with it? Other than that it was a great recipe and my husband loved it.

    I would use sweet onions instead of green onions and add red and green peppers to add color to the casserole.

    I made this for breakfast this weekend. I have tried and tried to find a breakfast casserole that I LOVE. I’ve made many over the years and while they are all ok, I have yet to find one that can be a “go-to”. That has all changed. Even my “I hate breakfast casserole” husband liked this. I will say that the kids claimed it was spicey, but I just noticed a pleasant heat from it. That being said, I will likely put in more cheddar than pepper jack next time for their sake. I also think I would prefer it to be just a bit more eggy. So I am thinking of adding an extra egg or two into it next time. I had NO problems with it being watery/soggy at all. In fact, it was all pleasantly browned on the bottom and edges. Possibly those that are having issue with it didn’t have their potatoes all the way thawed? In any case, I LOVE this casserole and it is what we will be eating on Christmas morning. Thanks for another hit!!
