Bacon & Onion Casserole

Feast your eyes upon a breakfast casserole that is just as good as eating a yummy breakfast sammich! And what’s better than caramelized onions!? Well… Maybe bacon… Ok, of course bacon. But the onions are a pretty darn close runner up!

What you will need:

1 cup diced sausage (I used patties)

6 pieces bacon

Quarter cup chopped onion

5 eggs

1 tbsp heavy whipping cream

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Salt/pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400.  Lay bacon on foil covered sheet pan and bake for 12-15 mins; set aside to drain on paper towel.  Reduce oven heat to 350.  Chop onions and put on the baking sheet in the bacon grease.  Broil onions on high for 5 mins.  Chop sausage and add to a greased baking dish.  Mix eggs and cream together until completely combined. Add the salt and pepper to your liking. Pour egg mixture over sausage and then add in your onions. Cover with half of the cheese and then top with all your crumbled (or chopped) bacon. Top with remaining cheese.  Bake on 350 for 30 mins! Let cool for 5 mins before slicing or scooping! Top and serve with a dollop of sour cream or mayo! Enjoy!

    This seemed too easy to be so good! I used pre-cooked bacon and sausage to make it even easier, heating it up in the pan with the onions. If you have an ovenproof pan, you could even bake it in the same! Topped with sour cream, it was delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made for breakfast – it is delicious and I can eat it guilt free. I added a slice of sourdough bread and sugar free raspberry jam. Very satisfying. I do have a question, how would I figure out the nutritional value for this recipe?

      There are a lot of online or app based recipe nutrition calculators. I like one off of Sparkpeople. You enter all the ingredients and the number of servings you make out of it and it will give you the values per serving.
