My Roasted Veggies and Ham Quiche is one of the ways I like to use leftovers to create something new and tasty. And I just discovered another way to do the same in my “Easy Breakfast Bake!”
A couple of weeks ago, I was cleaning out the fridge and found a variety of ingredients that sounded like they’d go well together. And let me tell you… I was right!

I had some cooked bacon in the fridge from BLT sandwiches, and that leftover ingredient is what initially sparked this recipe idea.
Luckily, I had some frozen hashbrowns, eggs and cheese on hand as well. Ingredients that really make this into a tasty dish!
Here’s a closer look at how I made it:
Easy Breakfast Bake
Get creative with this easy-to-make breakfast casserole you can serve in the morning, evening or any time in between!
- 1/2 pound bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
- 8 eggs
- 1 (30 ounce) package frozen shredded hashbrowns, thawed
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powwder
- Pinch of cayenne pepper (or more if you like it spicier)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I like sharp)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.
- Spread the hashbrowns in an even layer on the bottom of your prepared baking dish.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne. Pour the mixture over the hashbrowns. Sprinkle with half of the cheese, all of the bacon, then the other half of the cheese on top. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.
- Bake the dish for 1 hour, then remove the foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Let it stand for 5-10 minutes outside the oven before serving.
This breakfast bake is beyond simple to throw together. And it’s a great option if you’d like to make something ahead of time for morning breakfasts throughout the week.
The layering of the hashbrowns and eggs really makes for a great foundation for adding other things too (like veggies, sausage or other “breakfasty” ingredients).
But I think it’s really good the way I made it above.
If you get creative with it, I’d love to hear how you change it up!
