Breakfast Casserole

gluten free breakfast casserole

This is a super easy recipe for a brunch or even supper. It's filling and tasty and goes a long way when paired with some gluten free pumpkin cream cheese muffins or ginger peach coffee cake and fruit! The leftovers are great too.

You can get a little creative with this recipe if you like. Swap the bacon for ham or chopped up breakfast sausage or add some peppers and mushrooms to the onions. Just make sure the frozen hash browns (and sausage if you're using it) are gluten free, and you should be good to go!

(makes one square baking pan. double the recipe for a larger dish)

4-6 strips of Chopped Bacon (or sausage, ham, etc)
1/4 cup Diced Onion
6 Eggs
1/2 cup Milk
2 1/2 cups Frozen Hash Browns
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Dill Weed (optional)


Cook bacon or other meat in a frying pan.
Saute onions in drippings or microwave until translucent.
In a bowl, beat eggs with milk and spices.
Spread the frozen hash browns around on the bottom of the dish.
Sprinkle bacon and onions evenly over hash browns.
Pour egg mixture over hash browns (it should just barely cover them)
Sprinkle cheese on top.
Bake at 350 for about 1 hour (until knife inserted in the centre comes out clean)

place hash browns in baking dish
sprinkle sauteed onions and bacon evenly over hash browns
beat eggs with milk and spices
pour egg mixture over hash browns and sprinkle with cheese
bake at 350 for 1 hr
serve with fruit and muffins or coffee cake


  1. Looks like a crowd pleaser - and so easy! Thanks for sharing this recipe... a new approach for breakfast (especially when the teenagers in our house wake at all hours and it's hard to orchestrate the standard bacon and eggs!) Grazie - claudine

    1. Yes! Perfect for crowds and late risers. Glad I could share the recipe.

  2. could you make this and refrigerate or freeze it over night to bake the next day?

    1. I'm not sure if refridgerating or freezing raw egg would work that well. You could give it a try if you want.
      If you wanted to save yourself some work the next morning, you could prepare the hashbrowns, onions and bacon ahead of time and quickly whip up the egg mixture to pour over just before you bake it. That part only takes a few minutes anyway :)

  3. I just referred to this recipe in my own blog, from our Christmas breakfast. Thanks!

    1. Awesome! Sounds like you guys enjoyed it. Merry Christmas

  4. Can you tell me what brand of hash browns you use?

    1. I usually use a store brand (no name or compliments) but any brand that is cube shaped and gluten free would work!

  5. I made it with southwest shredded hash browns and instead of dill I used a pinch of dry mustard. Came out super yummy. Thank you
