Breakfast Casserole

March 13, 2011

Fantastic breakfast idea for feeding a crowd! This is a KP original recipe (based on a casserole that my Mom makes) and is a family favorite. Whenever I make it, I get rave reviews!

1 lb. sourdough bread, day-old, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
8 eggs, slightly beaten
4 cups milk
1 Tablespoon dried minced onions
1 Tablespoon smoked paprika
1 cup cooked ham, chopped
1 cup cooked bacon, crumbled
Garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a 9×13 glass baking dish with Pam cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, onion flakes, paprika, garlic salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Place bread cubes in bottom of prepared pan.
  • Top with shredded cheddar.
  • Pour egg mixture over cheese and bread cubes in pan.
  • Using a large spatula, gently press down, ensuring all bread is covered with egg mixture.
  • Top with ham and bacon.
  • Bake, uncovered, 40 minutes, until golden brown on top and set in center.
  • Allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

    Your sister introduced me to your web site (Thanks, Erin!) and I have loved everything I’ve tried. This one was especially fantastic, and I even cheated and assembled it the night before. Great blog :)
