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. 🙂

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 free casseroles, sausage, Hawaiian, ham and cheese, bacon and spinach, sausage and gravy, sausage with potatoes & bisquick 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.

      Hi, Lou. Are you clicking on the blue icon with “print recipe” under it in the actual recipe card down toward the bottom of the post? I click on the link and it works fine for me. If this doesn’t work, you may have to adjust the printer settings on your printer.

    Can you use cubed hasbrowns instead of shredded?

    1. Teresa

      June 22, 2018 at 9:16 am

      Hi, Kathy. I’m sure you can with equally good results.

    This was not the best casserole i’ve taken to pot lucks. But in it’s defense i did substitute ham chunks for the sausage and bacon, omitted the mushrooms, and seasoned with garluc powder and italian spices. Ummmm…maybe i should have tried following the recipe!

    1. Teresa

      December 12, 2017 at 6:12 pm

      Hi, Laurie. The casserole needs the bulk of those ingredients to taste well. Try the original spices too. They turn out perfectly.

      I didn’t see mushrooms in the recipe. Are you talking about another recipe.

      1. Teresa

        March 15, 2018 at 1:11 pm

        I don’t make this recipe with mushrooms. Perhaps she was referring to another recipe.

    Could you cook this in a crockpot overnight?

    1. Teresa

      November 26, 2017 at 5:36 pm

      Hi, Annette. I’ve never done it that way before but if you have a crockpot that cooks REALLY slowly, it might work. I probably would like to check it after 4-6 hours on low to see how it turns out.

    I do low carb. Any ideas what I could use instead of hash browns?

    1. Teresa

      March 19, 2017 at 1:05 pm

      Hi, Kelly. I’m not sure what would be a good option to replace the hash browns.Sorry.

    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.

    1. Teresa

      January 2, 2017 at 10:18 am

      Thanks for the tips, Danna. So glad you enjoyed the recipe!

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

    1. Teresa

      December 27, 2016 at 9:13 am

      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

      1. Teresa

        February 13, 2017 at 11:51 am

        Both will work. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Teresa

      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.
