Our one Christmas tradition since we’ve been married is to RELAX on Christmas day. The time leading up to Christmas is hectic enough. So on the day-of, we have a hearty home-cooked breakfast, and binge-watch our favorite movies on Netflix. For dinner, we eat Chinese take-out… it’s one of our most-loved traditions!
This year, I’ll be making this bacon egg and cheese casserole for our Christmas breakfast. It was inspired by my recent trip back to New York – the last day there I ordered a bacon, egg and cheese on a roll and remembered how much I used to love it growing up!
This casserole is a simple and hearty breakfast that makes a great weekend breakfast and of course would be great to feed company on Christmas morning!
What You’ll Need:
- 2 Cans of Biscuits
- 12 eggs
- 12 slices bacon, you can definitely get by with less! (you can also use cooked bacon if you prefer crispy bacon)
- 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Clove Garlic, minced
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- Melted butter (enough to grease baking dish)
While that’s in the oven, roughly chop bacon (I find it easiest to use kitchen shears), being sure to discard any overly fatty areas like the tips. Whisk eggs, add garlic into the egg mixture as well as salt, pepper and any other add-ins you’d like, I usually add a splash of milk.
To make it feel extra fancy, I frothed the creamer before slowly pouring it over the coffee! If you’re making it for the holidays, this little extra touch goes a long way!
I found the coffee creamer at Target on a holiday endcap, but there are tons of holiday flavors and you can receive 5% off on International Delight, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Silk Coffee Creamers from 12/1/2015 to 12/24/2015 if you download the Cartwheel app!

Bacon Egg Cheese Breakfast Casserole
- 2 cans biscuits
- 12 eggs
- 12 slices bacon
- 2 cups shredded cheese cheddar
- 1 garlic clove
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tsp butter melted, to grease baking dish
- Preheat oven to 375F. Brush baking dish with melted butter. Tear biscuits in half and loosely roll into little balls and line them along the bottom of the baking dish.
- Bake biscuits for 5-7 minutes. This is only to give them a head start, they won't be fully cooked in this time.
- While biscuits are in the oven, roughly chop bacon, being sure to discard any over fatty areas. Whisk the egg, add garlic into the egg mixture as well as the salt and pepper and any other add ins you would like at this point. Onions or peppers work great in this recipe as well. Sometimes I add a dash of milk.
- Pour eggs over biscuits, use about ¾ of the bacon pieces and sprinkle over egg mixture. Cover with cheese. Sprinkle with remaining bacon over top.
- Bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until bacon and eggs are fully cooked.
