Tasty Tuesday – Breakfast Casserole

Happy Tasty Tuesday! This week, I am going to share a recipe that I make quite a bit for us either at breakfast or dinner time. I’ve shared this before on my blog a few years ago and since I just made this recently, I figured I’d share it again, since it’s easy to fix and can also be fixed the night before.

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.

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 many 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 to help it not stick.

I fixed this one with turkey bacon, but in the past, I have also used ham or sausage. One time I’ll have to give scrapple a try.

If you like breakfast foods, I’m sure you’d like this casserole. Let me know if you give it a try.

Have a great last week of January!
