Ingredients to Use When Preparing the Breakfast Casserole
Before you make the Hearty Breakfast Casserole, make sure you have the right ingredients, including:
- Crumbled Bacon. Make two pounds of bacon and then crumble it into pieces.
- Onion. Chop two medium onions into small pieces.
- Eggs. You will need to use 12 eggs for this breakfast casserole. Another way to have eggs for breakfast.
- Frozen Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes. Be sure to let your frozen potatoes thaw before you use them.
- Cheddar Cheese. Add four cups of shredded cheddar cheese to your casserole.
The only other ingredients needed are butter, shredded Swiss cheese, salt, pepper, and small curd cottage cheese.
Can I Use Any Type of Shredded Cheese?
While this recipe calls for both shredded Swiss cheese and cheddar cheese, you can substitute them for other shredded cheese variations. Some options include sharp cheddar, triple cheddar, and even mozzarella cheese. Add what you like or have available in your fridge to use when making this Hearty Breakfast Casserole.
What Can I Serve with the Hearty Breakfast Casserole?
While the casserole is filling on its own, you might want to add to your meal to round it out. Other than the obvious fruit and juice, try adding a smoothie, granola, homemade bread or muffins or banana bread, Cinnamon swirl bread or Double chocolate Banana bread. You might even want to serve them with a side of pancakes, waffles, and french toast with syrup. I have a lot of pancakes, french toast, and waffle recipes!
Can I Freeze the Breakfast Casserole?
You can freeze the meal if you would like to prepare it ahead of time and save it for another day. When freezing the casserole, cover it with a sheet of aluminum foil, wrap it tightly, and then place it in the freezer. You can leave the casserole in the freezer for a maximum of three months. When you want to make it, let it thaw in the fridge overnight and then place it in the oven the next morning to heat it before you begin serving it to your loved ones.
