Amish Breakfast Casserole #FantasticalFoodFight

This filling and delicious casserole chock full of bacon, cheese, potatoes and eggs can be made the night before and placed into the oven before your guests arrive for brunch the next day.

We're vying to see who can cook up the best Breakfast Casserole this month during our Fantastical Food Fight......

Sarah of Fantastical Sharing of Recipes invites us each month to join her in a Fantastical Food Fight. Sarah provides an ingredient or a theme and sets us out to make the best recipe we can.  Then we meet up here on the third Wednesday of each month to share our creations.  It is a lot of fun and if you would like to join us you can learn more on the information page.

This month Sarah asked us to bring on the Breakfast Casseroles.......

Frank was scheduled to conduct a CPL class on the Saturday before this Fight took place.  Perfect timing for me to try out a recipe from the Taste of Home, Recipes Across America, Cookbook that I got as a door prize at a baby shower recently.

It turned out wonderful and I wasn't the only one who thought so.  When I went to clear the breakfast buffet there was nary a drop left.

This was a wonderful gift to receive at the shower and I couldn't wait to get home and thumb through it.  I am looking forward to making many more recipes from this book.  Taste of Home has yet to let me down with any of their recipes.

I am going to be sharing this over at Foodies Read.  You should stop by and see what the others are reading this month.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

This filling and delicious casserole chock full of bacon, cheese, potatoes and eggs can be made the night before and placed into the oven before your guests arrive for brunch the next day.


  • 1 lb. thick cut, apple smoked bacon, diced
  • 1 medium,  sweet onion, diced
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 c. frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 2 c. shredded colby jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 c. (4%)  cottage cheese
  • 1 c. shredded swiss cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste


How to cook Amish Breakfast Casserole

  1. In a skillet over medium high heat cook the bacon and onion until bacon is crisp and onion is translucent.  Set aside on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  2. Place the eggs in a bowl and lightly whisk them.  Add the potatoes and all the  cheeses.  Season with pepper and salt if desired.  I went easy on the salt due to the saltiness of the bacon.  Stir to combine, then mix in the bacon and onions.
  3. Turn the mixture into a 9x13" casserole that has been treated with baking spray. 
  4. At this point the casserole can be refrigerated for up to 24 hrs.  When ready to bake place into a preheated 350* oven for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
