23 Egg Casserole Recipes to Make Every Time You Need a Big-Batch Breakfast
If we had to designate a breakfast hierarchy, eggs would sit decidedly at the top of the food chain, along with thick-cut bacon. (Because, obviously.) As long as there’s a carton of eggs in your fridge, any big breakfast dilemma can be solved. House guests? Check. Holiday weekend? Check. Morning tailgate? Check. Baby shower? Check. We could go on and on. The ultimate egg recipe for a crowd: the breakfast egg casserole.
To put it simply, start with eggs. Add bacon, sausage, grits, vegetables, and plenty of cheese. Throw it all in your trusty 13x9. Pop it in the oven. (Or better yet, freeze it for later to eliminate prep time.) And…done! Presto. As much as we love buttermilk pancakes and homemade biscuits, they’ve got nothing on the ease of a thrown-together egg casserole. Trust us: These 23 egg casserole recipes are about to make your life a whole lot better. Get to whisking!
