A hearty egg casserole is the perfect main course for Sunday Brunch. This is a really simple casserole to make, and it warms in the oven in a short amount of time while you get everything else on the table. It uses amazingly simple ingredients, all of which can quickly be picked up from the supermarket at your discretion. It's very affordable, and you'll want to make this every weekend.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by lightly greasing it with butter.
Bacon: Cook your bacon as you typically would, according to the package directions. Place the bacon on paper towel to drain some of the grease. Keep a thin layer of the bacon grease in the pan.
Once the bacon has cooled, crumble it and set it aside for later.
Onion: Cook the diced onion in the bacon grease. Set aside and add the onion to the egg mixture.
Pepper: Cook the diced pepper in the bacon grease. Set aside and add the peppers to the egg mixture.
Eggs: Crack the eggs into a large bowl. Make sure there are no eggshells in the mixture.
Milk: Add the milk to the egg mixture. Whisk thoroughly.
Potatoes: The potatoes should be thawed ahead of time. Add them into the egg mixture.
Cheese: Add the cheese into the egg mixture.
Salt and pepper: Add the salt and pepper to the egg mixture according to how you like it flavored.
Bacon: Add the bacon into the egg mixture
Mix the entire egg mixture together so everything is thoroughly combined. Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, until the egg is set.
Serve warm out of the oven. You can also serve with some additional cheese, salsa or other desired toppings.
