This easy and delicious recipe is ideal when prepping for the holidays, hosting overnight guests, while on vacation or simply because you want to enjoy your morning coffee without the early rise to prep a meal to go with it.

This casserole is easily prepared ahead of time (you can even prepare it the night before), making it the perfect low-maintenance meal. We often bake it over the weekend and warm it up for breakfast throughout the week. Try this delectable dish as a healthy family breakfast or even as an amazing dinner!

What type of veggies or meats should I use in my casserole?

As long as it adds up to 1 & 1/2 cups, you can get creative. Feel free to choose one or use a combination of vegetables (broccoli, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms) and don’t be afraid to incorporate a meat, like ham, bacon, sausage, smoked salmon, or even crab (just make sure it is precooked).

Can I pre-prep my egg casserole? 

Absolutely! If you are a fan of meal prepping (it ROCKS!) pour the mixture in baking dish, cover, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, pop it in the oven.

Can I freeze my egg casserole?

Yep, you can freeze your egg casserole. Stack pieces of casserole between parchment paper and store in a freezer baggie or airtight container. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight and reheat

Kid-friendly and great for school lunches

This Easy Egg Casserole is great for school lunches. If frozen, pull a piece out in the morning, put it in your kiddo’s lunchbox and it will be thawed by the time they’re ready to eat!

Some ways to “reinvent” your leftover Easy Egg Casserole:

Feel free to choose one or use a combination of vegetables (broccoli, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms) and don't be afraid to incorporate a meat, like ham, bacon, sausage, smoked salmon, or even crab (just make sure it is precooked).

"Re-invent" Leftovers:
  1. Breakfast Burrito: In a wrap, combine a piece of egg casserole and any ingredients you'd like. Fold the wrap and grill each side 1 minute in a non-stick pan. We love to add black beans, avocado, hot sauce and halved cherry tomatoes for a Mexican twist.

    • Hi Robin!

      We’re currently working on adding a calorie tracker to all our recipes. MyFitnessPal and MyPlate are two great resources with extremely user-friendly apps to track calories. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.

  • Hi ladies, I’m curious about the reason for using cottage cheese in the breakfast casserole recipe instead of milk. I will give this recipe a try! Thanks for sharing it!

    • Hi Lauren!

      Cottage cheese generally contains less carbs and sugar than milk. It also gives the casserole a really nice texture, without having to add more cheese. We’ve never tried the recipe with milk. If you do, we’d love to hear how it turns out!
