I have to share something with you my dear friends— I am not a fan of making breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, I love eating an occasional warm breakfast, but usually, we are on the run most mornings and breakfast is on the go. (That’s why I love homemade easy crock pot apple butter, it steps up a plain English muffin!)

BUT– and that’s a big one…. there is always this super easy breakfast casserole recipe that we love for special occasions.

Customize this delicious breakfast casserole with bacon, sausage, or ham

To accommodate both preferences, we make one dish with Bacon (my choice!) and another with sausage (Jordan’s choice). It’s super easy to have one dirty bowl and baking dish to clean up.

My friends, this easy breakfast casserole recipe goes well with just about anything in the fridge. Mix in more peppers, onions, spinach, or mushrooms. Have some extra cheese? Add that in, too! It’s a really versatile dish for all the things you want to clear out of your fridge what you want to eat. 🙂

The night before we eat it, I’ll bake up the bacon or fry the sausage. It cuts about 15 minutes off extra prep time in the mornings.

If you have a larger crowd, you could serve the casserole with some biscuits, croissants, or pancakes. Variety is always delicious in the form of breakfast foods.

Enjoy this easy breakfast casserole recipe the next time you want hot breakfast, but almost zero work!
