My mother loves this recipe. She wanted me to make it everytime I visited her prior to her having to go to a nursing home. Now I enjoy making it for friends whenever we have a brunch gathering.

How to Make Egg Casserole

  3. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  4. Spray appropriate sized casserole dish with cooking spray.
  5. Lightly scramble eggs and milk until still wet and slightly runny. Put eggs in prepared casserole dish.
  6. Crumble bacon over eggs.
  7. If you have used any optional ingredients you can mix them in with the eggs before putting into the casserole dish or just layer on top.
  8. Sprinkle cheese over eggs/bacon/veggies.
  9. Spoon over top enough sour cream to cover everything all the way to the edges of the casserole dish. (Can sprinkle additional cheese on top if desired.)
  10. Bake for about 30 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and just starts to bubble.
  11. This dish can be prepared the night before through step 9. Refrigerate overnight. You may need to add a few minutes to cooking time if you do this.
