I don’t really do casseroles so I won’t call this a breakfast casserole. And although they share some of the same ingredients like bacon, red potatoes, green onions, eggs, and cheese, this isn’t quite like my super breakfast pie, either. Whatever it is, it’s tasty. When I make this, my house smells like I cooked a multi-course breakfast but it’s really an all-in-one dish! In addition to the aforementioned ingredients, there’s also sweet potato and a trio of spices that provide a good kick of flavor. This breakfast bake would be perfect to make ahead for Easter brunch or any old brunch if you don’t celebrate. Just cook your bacon and potatoes ahead of time and place them in the baking pan. On the day of, beat your eggs, add them to the dish, sprinkle with cheese and bake for about 20 minutes. This dish is a crowd-pleaser that makes about eight servings and has a little somethin’ for everybody. It’s cheesy, savory, a bit crunchy, a little spicy, and even a tiny bit sweet from the sweet potato. In case you’re new to Dash of Jazz, I’m a fan of mixing flavors–especially sweet and spicy, as evidenced here, here, and here.
I hope your week is ending on a great note–it’s almost Friday! Thanks for reading!
