How to Make:
Mix: Start by whisking together the egg and milk in a large mixing bowl.
When those are well combined you can go ahead and add all of the remaining ingredients including the meat, vegetables, cheese, bread and seasonings to the mixing bowl and continue to stir together.
Chill: When you’ve got everything mixed together you can pour it into a greased 9×13 baking dish.
Cover the baking dish tightly with foil and leave it in the refrigerator for at least four hours before moving on to the final step. This gives the bread some time to soak up the eggs. We often make this the night before serving and keep it in the fridge overnight.
Bake: Bake, uncovered, for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees. It’s done when the top has turned golden brown and the eggs have set. That’s all there is to this easy Cowboy brunch casserole recipe!
Yes, it’ll last in the refrigerator for a couple of days. This recipe should also freeze well, for up to 3 months.
Absolutely! We often leave out the onions for picky eaters or sub ham for one of the breakfast meats. Feel free to get creative and add whatever you like to this dish.
