Cheesy O’Brien Egg Scramble

April 1, 2019Teresa

Cheesy O’Brien Egg Scramble is just so, so good. This breakfast casserole is always a hit when we make it. The bottom layer consists of fried, then seasoned O’Brien potatoes. That’s topped with a can of Cheddar Cheese Soup. The next layer is bacon. LOTS of bacon. 🙂 That’s topped with a layer of scrambled eggs that are not quite cooked all the way. The last two layers are shredded cheddar cheese and more BACON! It’s a drool worthy recipe you are sure to enjoy.

I made this breakfast dish a couple of times in February. Once for our Friday night care group. They raved and raved over this amazing egg dish. I also made if for our young adult group. I had so many different types of breakfast foods for both groups (including homemade Chocolate Chip Donuts). But this is the dish everyone kept coming back for. Yes, seconds and even thirds! It was a winner.

Years ago, I worked at Dallas Baptist University trying to get my boys through college. One of the gals in our department (also someone I knew from church) made this dish for one of our Friday breakfasts. I worked in the Financial Aid office and every Friday we would take turns making breakfast for the whole department. It was so much fun and I ended up gathering lots of delicious recipes that way. Becky brought in this recipe and everyone loved it. I begged her for the recipe which she gladly gave me.

The recipe actually looks more difficult than it really is. If you think of it like just making layers, it’s really pretty easy. The most difficult part is only partially scrambling the eggs. That’s because they will cook the rest of the way while baking the casserole. You don’t want them pre-cooked to the point of dryness.

Cheesy O’Brien Egg Scramble is the perfect dish for Easter breakfast, Mother’s Day breakfast or even Father’s Day breakfast. Here are some tips to save time. Cook the bacon the night before and have it broken in pieces so it’s ready to go. Fry up the potatoes as well. Then all you have to do is layer the casserole and partially scramble the eggs. If the other parts are done, the casserole can be oven ready in about ten minutes. It only needs to bake about 20-30 minutes. In less than an hour you can have one terrific breakfast for holidays, company or weekend breakfasts.
