Crispy Potato Breakfast Bake

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!

Instructions
  1. Cook bacon to desired crispness and chop or crumble into pieces.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add potatoes to same pan of bacon fat over medium-high heat then season with all spices. Cook until crispy (about 20 minutes), stirring as necessary. (If using turkey bacon, simply add a bit of butter to the oil remaining from frying it and cook the potatoes in that).
  3. Meanwhile, beat eggs in a large bowl and season with a bit of sea salt and black pepper.
  4. Mix bacon and potatoes together than add to a rectangular baking dish. Pour beaten eggs over top then sprinkle with about half the shredded cheese.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until egg is firm and cheese is melted. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top then garnish with green onion. Serve warm.

  1. The perfect day for a recipe like this one (it’s raining in NY 😀 )

  2. My family loves potato dishes and this looks like it would be a winner.

  3. This looks great! Think I am going to try it without the meat.

    I’m excited to try this one out! I love sweet potatoes, but don’t think I would have ever considered adding to a breakfast dish! We have a family favorite that has a layer of bread topped with the eggs, meat, cheese and some cream of mushroom soup. It has to sit overnight for the eggs to absorb into the bread, but it is a favorite on Christmas morning with some fresh cinnamon rolls! I’ll be adding this one to my recipe box.

  5. This looks so delicious!!! This would be perfect for a Sunday brunch! 🙂

  6. Sweet potatoes! I don’t know why I never thought to use it for breakfast! My family isn’t a fan of them so I used to add 1/2 of one to my mash potatoes!

  7. This looks so delicious! I like how it would be easy to make into a meatless bake as well 🙂 Definitely going to try this one!

  8. I need this! Yum!!! I will have to try it for a weekend brunch!

  9. This looks very delicious , I think this would be perfect for our Sunday get together here. I am trying this one.

  10. I have an Easter brunch coming up that I needed a recipe for and this looks perfect! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Man look at all that cheese! I love a great breakfast bake but mine never looks that gooey. I’ve got to switch to this recipe!

    Bacon, potatoes and cheese…3 of my favorites all in one! It looks really delicious, and I love that you use red potatoes. It adds another great color layer to the dish.

Let me know what you think...
