Cheesy Amish Breakfast Casserole – Breakfast bake recipe with bacon, hash browns, cheese, cottage cheese. Comfort food perfect for weekend breakfast or brunch. Make overnight or the same day.
There’s nothing like the comfort and welcoming of a good home cooked breakfast casserole. This one was delicious and everyone in the family wanted a second helping. When that happens I know the recipe is a keeper for sure.
Cheesy Amish breakfast casserole is full of hash browns and bacon and green onions for flavor.
Cottage cheese and eggs for protein. Monterey Jack (or substitute for your favorite) and cheddar for amazing cheesiness. Sprinkle with some fresh parsley for garnish and you have an absolutely delicious breakfast.
Perfect for any weekend brunch or Easter, Mother’s Day and more. My family would happily eat this every single week!
My kids don’t love to eat eggs on their own. But if I add in some hash browns or bacon, they’re sure to dive in and eat it all.
This casserole works great to make the morning of or you can plan ahead and refrigerate overnight for an easy morning breakfast. Just pop it in the oven and you’re good to go.
Enjoy and have a beautiful day.
