How to make Amish Breakfast Casserole

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Cook the bacon and onion in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain excess grease.

Step 3: Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Add in and stir the bacon and onion mixture.

Step 4: Pour this into a greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

Step 5: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes, uncovered, until a knife inserted in the middle of the casserole comes out clean.

Step 6: Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.

Step 7: Serve and enjoy!

Tips:

1. Add a pinch of minced herbs into the egg mixture for that burst of colour and fresh flavour. Try thyme and parsley; a tsp fresh or 1/4 tsp dried.

2. Cottage cheese is a great addition, it’s cleverly versatile and dissolves into the dish when baked.

3. Make this a day ahead, prepare everything, and pop in the oven when ready to serve.
