If you are searching for a delicious breakfast casserole that is easy to make and everyone will love, look no further! This Easy Bacon Egg and Cheese casserole is so delicious that we made it and ate it all -two days in a row over the holiday break.
This is now going to go in my weekend brunch rotation. I really love including the tater tots, but you can sub hash browns if you wish.
If you prefer to make ahead, you can make this the night before. Otherwise, it only takes about 15 minutes of prep work the day of.
Let’s Brunch !
Easy Holiday Bacon Egg and Cheese Casserole
6 slices of bacon
1 diced onion
2 cups of tater tots (frozen)
1 cup shredded cheese
How to make Easy Holiday Bacon Egg and Cheese Casserole:
Cook bacon in skillet or microwave (depending on preference.) Reserve grease for the onions.
Once bacon is cooled, crumble into small pieces using a ziploc bag.
Sauté onion in bacon oil (using same pan) or butter until translucent
In a large bowl combine (stirred) eggs, tater tots, and cheese. Add in crumbled bacon and onions.
Pour mixture into greased baking pans. I used two.
Bake at 350 F (177 C) for 35-45 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.
You can make it the night before. Be sure to cover before placing in the fridge. However, I prefer to make this quickly in the morning. It’s quite simple and the smell of bacon cooking is always a smell that gets my kids out of bed!
Top your Easy Holiday Bacon Egg and Cheese Casserole with salsa or hot sauce. It’s delicious!
We have had a pretty wonderful year. Blessed beyond our expectations. God has been extremely good to us as we continue to learn to walk within His will.
To follow Him.
To listen when His answer is and isn’t what we want to hear.
I won’t give you a synopsis of our whole year, but I’ll give you a few highlights.
I have to brag on my dear husband, because he doesn’t publicize this type of thing. But, if you saw him, you would know. So, I can share here. He lost 60 pounds this year. Changed his eating habits and began exercising regularly. His healthy change has made a positive impact on him and all of us. Way to go, Moustapha! We are proud of you and so thankful for you.
He’s continued to do well at work and his attention to detail serves him so well as an attorney. He’s awesome.
Summer was incredible. We travelled a lot. We were invited to Escape to the Lake in Wisconsin, meeting and connecting with a lot of special people and artists through Under the Radar. I also helped cowrite and produce St. Andrew’s vacation bible school with my dear friend, Kelly. That was amazing!
We took a family trip to Destin, Florida at the end of the Summer. It was definitely a highlight of the year. We traveled with my parents, sister, brother, sister-in-law and 3 of our nephews and 1 niece. The Els were in heaven with some of their favorite playmates on vacation with us!
4th grade has been Bakri’s best year yet. And, all of the Els love their classes and teachers. We feel very blessed.
I have definitely felt God’s hand on my life unlike any other time I have experienced before. This fall, God led us to a new church home, Church of the Apostles Houston. It was bittersweet to leave our St. Andrews family and follow God to this new church. I have truly felt surrounded by His love as I have begun to lead a new church community as the Worship Pastor. Late in November CCM Magazine asked me if I would contribute a song to their Christmas album. I was honored to be asked, but of my two original Christmas songs, neither was recorded. I won’t go in to this whole story. But, I will share that Nashville studio musicians ended up recording the instrumentation of the song and I recorded the vocals here in Houston. Jonathan Camey mixed the vocals in Houston and now my song Noel, I know Jesus is on the 2014 Christmas album alongside artist like Francesca Battistelli, Sandi Patty, MercyMe, and Kari Jobe to name drop a few! 😃 I can’t say “blessed” and “humbled” enough. I do not feel worthy of these many blessings, but I do not take them for granted.
Thank you for being part of our lives. We appreciate our friends and family near and far.
