  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch casserole dish.

  • Layer potatoes, red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, onion, and jalapeno pepper in the casserole dish. Sprinkle 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese on top. Scatter bacon pieces over the cheese.

  • Whisk eggs, milk, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and paprika together in a large bowl. Pour over layers in the casserole dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Continue baking until cheese is melted and golden, about 10 minutes more.

I cooked the bacon in a 10" cast iron skillet and then used that same skillet to make the casserole in. I thought the 1 tablespoon of garlic powder might be too much for us so I used 1 teaspoon and it was just enough. The bacon was a little too done next time I would dice the bacon and just partially cook it and let it finish cooking in the oven. I think this would be great with sausage or even ham. Hubby says 'thanks' for a nice breakfast. Read More

1 tablespoon of pepper was to much for our taste. Thinking it should be 1 teaspoon. Next time I will put bacon on top of potatoes to keep it from getting to crispy. Read More

I used browned hash browns on the bottom and cooked hot sausage instead of bacon. Seriously delicious!!! We didn't have left overs! Read More

I made it strictly by the recipe, it was awesome. I will definitely make it again, and will probably experiment with additional meats and veggies. I can absolutely see mushrooms and ham in the future! Read More

It's a good base. I used yellow potatoes and onion Just looking at the recipe I knew the salt & pepper amt wasn't right. I think about 2 tsp max. Especially if you use pork bacon sausage crumbles etc. I don't eat pork so I used turkey bacon cooked and diced. I added turkey kielbasa tomatoes fresh parsley. Didn't have enough cheddar so I added Monterey jack slices. It came out really good. Read More

Loved it. We cut the recipe in half but used 4 eggs instead of 3. Used a bit of pepper and no salt 6 month aged cheddar. Lightly sautéed the cut veggies in a bit of olive oil first (did not sauté the potatoes). We cooked the bacon separately. We baked it in a casserole dish and topped with salsa. Next time we may add some cilantro. Read More

Great recipe! Should have made it in a smaller casserole dish so it would be thicker.My husband has leftovers for two lunches. I have a bunch of bacon left so I may make it tonight! Read More

Very tasty but I didn't make exactly as per the recipe. I under-cooked the chopped bacon a little (used a cast iron pan that later went into the oven with the whole mix) and fried the onions and garlic with it. I cut down the pepper to about 1 tsp added sliced fresh mushrooms and eliminated the egg/milk mixture altogether. Just mixed the veggies and bacon in the cast iron pan I cooked up the bacon/onions in and topped it all with cheddar cheese and baked for about 40 minutes. We had it for supper and the family really enjoyed it. Read More

a full tbsp of garlic powder and pepper sounded like too much so I cut both by half. and I would probably go with more like 1.5 cups cheese. maybe add small pieces of broccoli for texture. otherwise delicious and went over very well with my easter brunch crowd! Read More
