Another husband-approved recipe. Made a couple times recently because of how easy it is to make! This recipe is easy to double or triple, but you may have to cook a bit longer if doing so.

If I could give this 10 stars I would. Made this and everyone Loved it, no leftovers! I put hash brown potatoes on the bottom of the 9 x 13 pan and then I doubled the recipe. In addition to the bacon, I chopped up an entire package of Canadian Bacon (For men the more meat the better), also added a package of mushrooms and topped off with extra cheese. Covered with foil and Baked on 350 for 45 minutes. Everyone came back for a second helping. :-) This is a very easy recipe and I will definitely make it again. Read More

Using the pan size indicated, the dish is way too thin. If I were to make this again (I won't), I would use a smaller square pan and bake longer. Also, the bacon in this dish is gross. I'm not a fan of limp bacon pieces that have only been warmed 20-25 min. But, now I know. Definitely NOT going in the recipe binder. Read More

I had some leftover philly cheesesteak filling that I added to this egg bake. That negated the green onion or red pepper. Because I am doing a Pantry Challenge, I happened to be out of "fresh" bacon so I used a partial bag of real bacon bits I had in my fridge. I also used up some leftover evaporated milk that I had in the fridge instead of regular milk. I made no other changes. After this came out of the oven, I served it with sour cream/homemade salsa on top and made it more filling with baked hashbrowns and buttered whole wheat toast. NO leftovers. I would make this again. Very tasty. Read More

This was a nice brunch, and definitely something different for my family. I swapped out the green onion from some red onion(1/4 cup) and added a big handful of chopped mushrooms as well. Both which i sauteed quickly before adding to egg mixture. I also decided to fry the bacon up first(i used 9 slices)to render out the fat.Seems odd to me to add the bacon in just as is. I chose to bake mine in a 9inch pie plate, and it took a total of 33 minutes. Will be making this again! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Made this yesterday for breakfast with the in-laws, it was a hit. I cooked the bacon first to reduce some of the fat, beat the eggs before adding the rest of the ingredients, and added some fresh mushrooms. The guys had seconds. I increased the quantities of everything and I'm glad I did, I don't think it would have been enough. I have a little left over, but that's better than not having enough. This could easily be prepared the night before and baked in the morning. It would also be good for a quick and easy dinner. Read More

Brunch, 11 guys with leftovers. I used 24 eggs, 1lb sharp cheddar, 1 red, 1 green pepper, 10 slices sandwich bread, 1 cup milk, 2 tsp garlic and 1-1/2 lb bacon. Baked in large stainless pan for 40 mins. Everybody liked it. Read More

Winner! Winner! I have tried so many breakfast casseroles that I was beginning to believe that I would never find one that I really liked. The only things I did differently was to use a chopped bagel in place of the bread and add 1/4 tsp. of dry mustard. I baked in a pie plate and love it! Plus it was sooooo easy. Read More

This was good! Here's what I did: toasted the bread first, used regular onion, canadian bacon (which was lovely-not greasy and good flavor) and green pepper. I baked it in a 8 x 12 pan for 25 minutes and let it rest for 5. I will make this again! Better than I anticipated :) Read More
