Loaded Farmhouse Breakfast Egg Casserole

I've recently started dating someone and he is an Extreme Country Boy! He also knows how to cook and has lots of ideas for me but he likes to make them all EXTREME! So this Loaded Farmhouse Breakfast Casserole is all his idea! 

This Loaded Farmhouse Breakfast Casserole has everything you can think of in it! Eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, peppers, onion, hashbrowns, cheese- whew! THAT is Extremely Loaded!  

How to make egg & sausage breakfast casserole? 

I started out with my baked scrambled eggs recipe and just added everything I could think of to it! This is the best breakfast casserole because it's got everything! You start with hashbrowns on the bottom - mix up your eggs and just start adding everything else! Pour it in a baking dish and go! 

Can egg casserole be made ahead of time? 

Sure! This could easily be made the night before - set it in the fridge and you're good until the next morning. Or you could have your ingredients prepped and ready - then stir it all together in the morning. If it's going from fridge to oven - I would add 5 minutes more baking time. 

How long will breakfast casserole keep? 

In the refrigerator, breakfast casserole will keep for 3-5 days. I put my leftovers in glass containers and kept one container in the fridge for myself and one in the freezer for later! 

Can breakfast casserole be frozen? 

Definitely - you CAN freeze breakfast casserole! I did and it was great! I just take it out the night before and put it in the fridge - then it's ready to be reheated. 

This Loaded Farmhouse Breakfast Casserole is going to bring everyone to the table! If your family likes it spicy - you could add Jalapenos to the casserole and a splash of hot sauce when you serve it. And be sure you DICE the cheese - it's gooier that way! 


What to serve with breakfast casserole with eggs and sausage? 

This Loaded Farmhouse Breakfast Casserole goes perfectly with my Ruby Slipper Biscuits. And there are hashbrowns in this but you could always add my Taco Johns Potato Oles as a side dish for more goodness!

  • 1 cup crumbled sausage
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 4 slices thick cut bacon, cooked and diced

instructions:

How to cook Loaded Farmhouse Breakfast Casserole

  1. preheat oven to 350
  2. while oven is preheating, heat hash brown patties
  3. air fry for 10 min - flipping half way through
  4. bake for 15 min
  5. cook bacon on stovetop - i recommend undercooking the bacon as it will cook more in the casserole
  6. once cooked, place bacon on paper towels
  7. drain half bacon fat and add ham, sausage, peppers and onions to skillet and sauté 3-4 minutes, set aside
  8. spray 8x8 baking dish with nonstick spray
  9. lay hash brown patties across bottom of pan
  10. if your 4 don’t fit - take the extra hash browns and break up and set aside 
  11. beat 8 eggs with milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl
  12. add sautéed vegetables & sausage, bacon and diced cheese (and any extra hashbrowns and jalapenos if you want to spice it up) to eggs and mix together
  13. pour egg mixture over hash browns
  14. sprinkle shredded cheese on top
  15. bake at 350 for 12 minutes
  16. pull eggs from oven and pull sides of eggs in with a spatula - so uncooked eggs move to edges
  17. bake for an additional 12 minutes
  18. remove from the oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes
  19. serve and sprinkle with hot sauce!

NOTES:

- you can make this more sweet by using honey baked ham and maple sausage - add 1/4 cup pickled jalapenos if you like it spicy - you can use whatever cheese you like - even multiple kinds of cheese if you have some in the fridge. i recommend using diced cheese in the casserole for the gooey factor
