For me, Sunday morning is our busiest morning. Breakfast for my family can either be hard to fit in, or it can be simple, uncomplicated, and on the table with ease. This Bacon and Egg Hashbrown Casserole is a great family breakfast idea!
We go to worship each Sunday morning. That means we have to get up early and while everyone is getting ready I try to get some kind of breakfast prepped.
I’ve found the easiest way to do that is prepping everything the night before. Then I can just turn on the oven, pull from the fridge, pop a casserole, or baked item into the oven. Then, I can go and get ready. By the time we’re all ready to go, so is breakfast.
We can sit down for 15 or 20 minutes as a family and start our day with prayer, a little family time, and that no-rush feeling that helps us to focus our minds on preparing for worship.

Bacon and Egg Hash Brown Casserole Recipe
What could be simpler? Eggs, bacon, and hash browns with a few spices, and cheese and you’ll have this prepped in no-time.
So to get this prepped the night before you’ll need to do a few simple things.
The hardest part is that you’ll need to pre-cook the bacon.
But here’s my quick and easy fried bacon tip. Instead of standing at the stove frying bacon in a pan you can roast the bacon in the oven. You’ll get the crispiest bacon while the oven does all the work.
Heat oven to 375º. I use a baking sheet with rack. Line the sheet with aluminum foil, place the rack over the top. Lay out your bacon slices on the rack. Place in the oven and let cook for about 20 minutes depending on your preferred level of crispness.
Want extra crisp bacon? When you remove from the oven, dab the bacon slices with a paper towel to remove excess oil. This helps the bacon to crisp up as it cools down.
The prep the rest of the recipe according to the recipe below.
This breakfast casserole recipe serves 8. So, for small family meals you can split the recipe into two casserole dishes. Cook them both and then place one into the fridge for a quick, heat and eat, later in the week.
This recipe uses simple ingredients that you are likely to have on-hand.

Are you eating a low-carb lifestyle? I do! I’m doing Trim Healthy Mama. So, to make this same recipe as a low-carb recipe substitute 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of almond milk (or water) for the milk. And substitute frozen cauliflower rice for the hash browns.
Once you have the casserole prepped, simply cover and place in the fridge overnight. The next morning, preheat the oven, start your coffee, and place your casserole in the oven while you get ready for the day.
Serve this recipe with a simple fruit salad of sliced strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
