Charleston Breakfast Casserole

An easy, crowd-pleasing breakfast or brunch idea. Try playing with the ingredients to dress it up or down, depending on your occasion.


8 servings


12 slices bacon
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 cups croutons
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
6 large eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1 bell pepper (any color), diced
1 tablespoon prepared


Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.

Melt butter in the microwave, or in a small pan on the stove over low heat. Place croutons in the bottom of the prepared dish, and drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle with grated Cheddar cheese.

Crack the eggs into a bowl, whisking to break up the yolks. Add milk, peppers, mustard, salt, and pepper, and beat until well-combined. Pour over the croutons and cheese, and sprinkle with crumbled bacon.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.
