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

Step-by-Step

  • 3Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  • 4Spray appropriate sized casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • 5Lightly scramble eggs and milk until still wet and slightly runny. Put eggs in prepared casserole dish.
  • 6Crumble bacon over eggs.
  • 7If 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.
  • 8Sprinkle cheese over eggs/bacon/veggies.
  • 9Spoon 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.)
  • 10Bake for about 30 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and just starts to bubble.
  • 11This 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.
