Amish Breakfast Casserole

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Amish Breakfast Casserole is one of the BEST breakfast casseroles I’ve ever eaten. Seriously. This fabulous breakfast entree uses three cheeses and two meats! It’s absolutely loaded and a heavenly way to enjoy breakfast. This recipe uses both bacon and sausage, cheddar, Swiss and cottage cheeses, hash browns, eggs and bell peppers. I guarantee you’ll want to make this for a holiday breakfast this year. It’s THAT good. šŸ™‚

The first time I tasted this recipe was back in the mid 2000s when a Nigerian couple who attended our Sunday school class brought this dish in for breakfast one Sunday morning. Everyone raved over it as it’s so creamy and delicious. The nice thing about Amish Breakfast Casserole is you can either make it and refrigerate it over night (if that’s easier for you), or make up the ingredients just before baking. I’ve done it both ways and it turns out quite well either way. This recipe fills a 9×13″ baking dish so you can easily get about 10-12 servings–especially if you’re serving it with other food.

Okay, I admit that I’m something of a Breakfast Casserole Queen. I love eating this stuff. I’ve made gluten freeĀ casseroles, sausage, Hawaiian, ham and cheese, bacon and spinach, sausage and gravy, sausage with potatoes & bisquickĀ and with green chilies. Certainly I’m partial to breakfast casseroles. But I love the convenience of making these in advance and being able to present such a wonderful dish for holiday breakfasts. They’re also a great option if your family enjoys eating large country-style breakfasts on the weekends. They’re so hearty, satisfying and filling that you won’t be hungry for hours afterwards!

I made this recipe recently when we had a “Breakfast for Dinner” potluck at our church. This casserole was gone within about 10 minutes and there were a lot of breakfast casseroles to choose from. It is one of those delicious recipes that you can’t get enough of! Amish Breakfast Casserole is a delightful breakfast entree you’re sure to love, especially if you enjoy protein-packed breakfasts.

    Made this for New Years morning… I had put cottage cheese in my cart at the store, but when I got home… alas, it didn’t come with me. So, I added an extra egg and used sour cream instead of cottage cheese. It was delicious! I think I would make it with sour cream from now on.

    I’m not a fan cottage cheese. Could you substitute ricotta cheese instead?

      It would probably work okay. But the cottage cheese really turned out great, Kimberly.

      When I make Lasagna I use Ricotta cheese instead of Cottage Cheese. I bet Ricotta would be great in this casserole also. https://youtu.be/v8CvH5yjeSc

      I’m sure ham would work in this casserole as well, Kristi. Why don’t you give it a try?

      Hi April, You can refrigerate it 24 hours in advance, but I wouldn’t freeze it. Enjoy.
