We’ve had lots of breakfast casseroles in our days…lots!    We love eggs….and bacon….and grits….and all foods breakfast.  We do breakfast for dinner several times a month.  Face it…breakfast is  just easy.   Open up a box of cereal, pour it into a bowl and add milk!    I’m kidding!   There was a day when cereal was our “breakfast for dinner” choice du jour.   But as we’ve gotten older, our tastes have grown up a bit.

So without any further adieu , let me tell you about what I made for dinner tonight.     This was my first time to make this casserole, and honestly, I was nervous about it.    The bread was different than my normal egg casserole.  The meat was different….but it was BACON instead of the the usual sausage ….so I wasn’t THAT nervous about that part!

Here’s the list of ingredients…

  • 10 eggs
  • 1lb of bacon
  • One can of Pillsbury flaky biscuits
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 1-2C grated cheddar cheese
  • Chopped onions,peppers, mushrooms (this is optional and you can totally leave this out if you want)

Here’s what you do…

  1. In a large bowl, mix the eggs with the milk. Whisk together.  Season with salt, pepper, garlic salt.  I also used Tony’s but I put Tony’s on everything.  You can season the eggs however your family likes.
  2. Cut the raw biscuit dough into quarters then drop into the egg mixture.   Make sure the eggs cover up the biscuit dough.   Let this sit while you do step 3.
  3. Fry the bacon!  I suggested an entire pound of bacon for this so you’d have a few extra pieces to munch on before you move on to step 4.  You’re welcome 🙂
  4. Take the bacon you haven’t eaten , crumble it and add to the egg/biscuit mixture.
  5. Add the cheese. Stir
  6. Pour this into a greased 11×13 pan.   Spread the biscuits out so they’re somewhat evenly distributed in your pan.
  7. If you have chosen to add any of the veggies to this, do it here.   I chopped up mini sweet peppers and sprinkled them over the top of the casserole. But only on half because, well, I wanted my picky eaters to enjoy this too!
  8. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Enjoy this bit of scrumptiousness!  Serve with fruit for a healthy touch 🙂
