Transcript:Breakfast CasseroleHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make a breakfast casserole and talk about the different ingredients that you can include.
Breakfast Casserole IngredientsYou will need:
- 5 slices of bread
- 12 ounces of turkey bacon
- 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
- 6 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon mustard
Layer Breakfast Casserole CrustThe bottom layer of the casserole will be its crust. Bread is often used as the crust, but you can also use hash browns or shredded potatoes as well. I'm putting down almost 5 slices of bread to cover the pan.
Add Breakfast Meat and VeggiesFor the next layer, use your favorite breakfast meat. This can be bacon, sausage or ham. Today I'm using 12 ounces of turkey bacon as a healthier substitute. After you fry it, lay it on paper towels to dry and cool. Crumble it over the bread pieces. If you want to add any vegetables, such as cooked broccoli, cooked drained spinach, or sautéed onions, layer it with the meat.
Sprinkle on CheeseNext comes the cheese. Sprinkle your favorite shredded cheese over the meat. I'm using about 1 1/2 cups of cheddar.
Prepare Egg MixtureIn a bowl, beat 6 eggs. If you like, you can substitute 3 of the eggs for 6 egg whites. Whisk in 2 cups of milk and 1 tablespoon of mustard. You can also add salt and pepper now, or let individuals add it to their personal servings.
Bake the Breakfast CasserolePour the egg mixture over the casserole and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let the casserole sit for 5 -10 minutes before cutting and serving. Enjoy breakfast casseroles for a special family brunch or weekday meal.
