Wake-Up Casserole with Canadian Bacon


The original recipe for this casserole with Canadian bacon is delicious, but this is my healthier version with less fat and fewer calories. As a single person, I can't eat eight portions in one sitting, so I wrap portions and freeze them. It's great to have on hand for family visits — just reheat each person's serving when they show up for breakfast. It's also great if you're in a hurry in the morning and don't have time to cook before heading off to work.

1 9x13-inch caserole


  • cooking spray

  • 1 ¾ cups egg substitute (such as Egg Beaters® Southwestern Style)

  • 1 cup 2% milk

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard

  • 8 frozen hash brown patties

  • 2 (6 ounce) packages Canadian bacon, quartered

  • 4 cups shredded Cheddar Jack cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk egg substitute, milk, salt, and mustard together in a bowl.

  3. Layer hash brown patties over the bottom of the prepared baking dish, then cover with Canadian bacon and Cheddar-Jack cheese. Pour egg mixture over top. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove the foil and continue to bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean and the edges are golden brown, about 15 more minutes.


To reheat frozen portions, microwave for 3 minutes.
