Tasty Tuesday – Breakfast Casserole

Happy Tasty Tuesday!  Who enjoys breakfast for dinner?  We do in our household, and I fixed this the other night for dinner.  It’s a great meal to serve with fresh fruit or bread.  This week’s recipe for Breakfast Casserole comes from one of my favorite Amish cookbooks, “The Esh Family Cookbook”.  It’s a great cookbook full of recipes, poems, and snippets throughout the pages written by a very sweet family.

If you are craving breakfast food today, here’s the recipe…

Breakfast Casserole, Mrs. Sally Ann Esh (Mel), page 42, “The Esh Family Cookbook”

1 1/2 c. milk

1/2 c. bisquick

3 eggs

1/4 c. melted butter

1 c. shredded cheese

8 strips bacon, crumbled

Mix milk, bisquick, eggs, and butter.  Put bacon and cheese on top.  Press below surface with a fork.  Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Let stand for 10 minutes.

From Sally Ann:  “This is a casserole I like to mix Saturdays when we have church the next day, for a simple breakfast.”

One thing I learned after fixing this my very first time years ago was to eliminate the melted butter.  I think they use that sort of like we use a baking spray (like Pam, etc.).  I no longer put the butter into the mixture, and the casserole still comes out nice and fluffy.  Just remember, if you also eliminate the butter, to spray your baking dish with a spray to help it not stick.

  1. My favorite breakfast is a veggie omelet filled with shredded carrots, bell pepper, onion, broccoli, spinach. tomatoes & a little cheese. Covered with chip beef gravy. It is so good,


  2. Actually, my favorite breakfast is 2 eggs, sunny side up, hash browns, well done and well done bacon. Almost forgot, white toast to soak up all that great egg yolk.
