Bacon Breakfast Casserole that’s loaded with hash browns, eggs, and bacon, then topped with cheese and more bacon. A hearty breakfast or brunch recipe.

My family loves hot breakfasts like Breakfast Hash, Biscuits and Gravy, and Breakfast Pizza.

It’s loaded with tasty ingredients, but of course the bacon is what makes it extra yummy. You can’t go wrong with bacon for breakfast. Heck, you can’t go wrong with bacon any time of day, can you?

How To Make Bacon Breakfast Casserole

-First you spread hash browns, bacon, and cheese into a 9×13″ pan.
-Next you whip up a simple biscuit mix. If you prefer, you can just substitute a heaping 1 1/2 cups of Bisquick for the flour, baking powder, salt, and butter.
-Mix together eggs, milk, and your biscuit mix and pour over the top of the hash browns in the pan.
-Bake at 350° for about 40 minutes, then top with even more cheese and bacon. Yum! I like to garnish mine with green onions, but that step is totally optional.

Can I make bacon breakfast casserole the night before?

-You can prep it the night before by layering the hash browns, bacon and cheese in the pan. Mix up your biscuit mix and store it in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator. You can even beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together and store them in a bowl in the refrigerator.

-In the morning, combine the biscuit mix with the egg mixture and pour over the hash browns in the pan. Bake as directed. So easy!

Bacon Breakfast Casserole is of course perfect for breakfast or brunch, but don’t be afraid to serve it any time of day. My family loves it when I serve breakfast foods for dinner!

I like to serve it with fresh fruit and a tall glass of milk, but it would also be great with a smoothie. I hope you’ll give it a try!
