Cheesy Bacon Breakfast Casserole

This Amish Breakfast Casserole is one of the best breakfast casseroles we’ve ever eaten. Hash browns and cheese baked in creamy eggs. It is crazy good! We ate this for breakfast and had the leftovers for dinner the same night! This is also great a great recipe for overnight guests and holiday mornings. Whip up some biscuits and grits and you are set!

How to Make Amish Breakfast Casserole

This casserole is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a medium skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Cook sausage in a skillet until no longer pink. Drain excess grease and set aside. 

In the bowl of a food processor or blender, add eggs, cottage cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth. 

In a large mixing bowl, combine bacon, sausage, frozen shredded hashbrowns, sharp cheddar cheese, and swiss cheese. Stir in egg mixture. Toss to coat all ingredients. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Pour hash brown mixture into the baking pan. Bake until set.

Helpful Tips & Frequenly Asked Questions

  • There is no need to thaw the shredded hash brown potatoes before adding them to the casserole.

  • Feel free to add onions, green bell peppers, or mushrooms.
  • Can use any meat in this casserole that you prefer. I use a combination of bacon and sausage, but feel free to use all bacon or all sausage. Diced ham is also delicious.
    • I use Jimmy Dean sausage.
  • I use a combination of cheddar cheese and swiss cheese. You can use any cheese that you enjoy. Muenster, gouda, gruyere, white cheddar all work great. 
  • Can Amish Breakfast Casserole be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the casserole and bake it the next morning.
  • Can Amish Breakfast Casserole be frozen? Yes! Assemble the casserole and cover the pan with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and place in the freezer. When ready to bake, thaw and bake as directed.

  1. Made this for the first time yesterday morning. Only differences were that I used a lb. of sausage, didn't have any bacon, and used mozzarella instead of swiss for the same reason. My wife, son and I loved it and will definitely make it again, especially when my son's friends stay over, it makes a ton. We will be having at least some of the left overs for breakfast this morning. It was very easy to make, thanks!!

  2. This really looks good….I would add onions,and green pepper to mine 🙂 love when you show pictures of the food you guys cook Kevin 🙂 keep up the good work…..
