  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  3. Melt butter in the microwave, or in a small pan on the stove over low heat. Spray a 9x12 inch baking dish with vegetable spray. Place croutons in the bottom of the dish, and drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle with grated Cheddar cheese.
  4. Crack the eggs into a bowl, whisking to break up the yolks. Add milk, peppers, mustard, salt, and pepper, and beat until well-combined. Pour over the croutons and cheese, and sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This breakfast casserole was fantastic, but I did make just a few changes, based on other reviewers. I replaced the "soggy" croutons with potatoes (I used half a bag of frozen cubed hash browns...

Need to add two more eggs and 1/4 cup more milk if soaking casserole overnight. Great flavor!

Very good- you never know with custard (eggbased) recipes like this how they will turn out- I always worry about them being too gloopy but this was perfect. I did up the eggs and milk a bit and...

This is very delicious and impressive to serve to guest. I made the smaller 8X8 version. I used 4 eggs and, condensed milk, a dash of cinnamon (sounds weird but it adds something), garlic cheese...

This was an excellent casserole. I used 8 eggs to make it a little thicker and added mushrooms, roma tomatoes, and onion to give it that much more flavor. Surprisingly it reheats very well.

First, thanks to Scott for posting this fantastic recipe! I was looking for something a bit different that the traditional breakfast casseroles, (which to me are pretty much all the same) for a...
