Breakfast Casserole that is hot and filling. Great to eat anytime of the day, but makes you feel warm and cozy when its cold out. Can also be prepared ahead of time and reheated. My husband likes to make this one when all the kids come home for the holidays.
Grease a 2 quart square baking dish. Arrange potatoes evenly in dish and sprinkle with cheese, meat, and green onion. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, milk, parsley, salt, and pepper. Pour over mixture. You can refrigerate it overnight at this stage (if for an early breakfast).
Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes or until center is set. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

This is great for a holiday, or when your have overnight guests. It's easy to prepare and easy to serve!
Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 60 minutes, until firm and lightly browned. Remove from oven and let the casserole rest for 5 to 10 minutes. It will be very hot, on the inside.
I usually serve some fruit and some Danish pastries, for something sweet, to go with this very popular savory dish. *One recipe that I have seen for breakfast casseroles does not call for the overnight setting of the mixture, but I have not tried that. I appreciate being able to just take it out of the refrigerator and put it into the oven.

Put 1/3 of bread, ham and cheese in greased 9x13 inch pan. Sprinkle with 1/3 of flour and mustard which has been mixed together. Repeat 3 times.
Combine eggs and milk with whisk or electric mixer. Soft scramble them on top of stove in butter. Fry bacon until crisp; crumble.
If using sausage, brown and drain. If using ham, cube. Beat eggs; add remaining ingredients. Place in greased 9x13 inch baking dish and refrigerate overnight.
This can be fixed any time and reheated on a busy morning in single portion servings. It even works for a quick snack for hungry teens!
Kind of different, but very good!
Put cubed bread into 9x13 inch greased baking dish or pan. Sprinkle the browned sausage that has been drained on paper towels to get rid of as much grease as possible.
Choose one of the 3 meats. Brown meat and drain, if needed. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Lay buttered-side down in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Cook and drain sausage. Cut bread into chunks. Beat eggs and milk together. Add all ingredients. Pour into 9x13 inch pan.

I am trying to find a recipe for a Breakfast casserole with Ranch dressing in it. Thanks.
Eileen from CA
Your request is sort of vague, but here is one I found:
Ranch Potato, Ham and Egg Casserole
1/2 stick butter
3 cups chopped small potatoes
4 eggs, stirred well
1 1/2 cup diced ham
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped tomato
2 Tbsps chopped pepper
2 Tbsps minced onion
3 Tbsps Ranch dressing
3/4 cup milk
1 cup grated cheese
Preheat oven to 350°F. Saute potatoes and ham in butter over medium heat until potatoes are just cooked. Drain well. Place in casserole dish. Top with remaining ingredients and bake in oven until eggs are cooked. Stir occasionally. Serves 6-8
Debbie, this sounds delicious. Thank you!
Sorry this WAS vague, I think the one my friend was looking for had a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix. And I am not sure if it was one that you make the night before and then cook in the morning. Yours sounds good to me! And I like the idea of potatoes and not bread! Thank you, Eileen

Here are a few of my favorite breakfast casseroles. All are baked uncovered in a shallow, greased baking dish. All can be made in advance and reheated. They also freeze well. Hope you enjoy!
EGGS AND HASH
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Press corned beef hash into baking dish. Using the bottom of a jar(16 ounce mayo size is perfect) press hollows into hash. Don't press all the way through to the bottom. Beat one small egg for each hollow and pour egg into hollow. Place a small bell pepper ring on top of each egg if you wish. Bake 20 minutes or until eggs are set. Serve with Tabasco sauce.
SAUSAGE AND POTATOES CASSEROLE
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown sausage. Spoon into baking dish. Sprinkle with potatoes, then cheese. Pour eggs over all. Bake 20 minutes or until eggs are set.
SOUTHERN STYLE BREAKFAST CASSEROLE
Preheat oven to temperature listed on cornbread mix. In a large bowl, mix cornbread according to package directions. Mix in remaining ingredients. Spoon into baking dish. Bake for the time listed on the cornbread mix or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I have made this with french bread and cheddar cheese, very tasty. It is nice to have it all set to bake in the morning.
Mix and pour over cheese:
You may add cut-up ham or fried bacon pieces or veggies. Refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until puffed and golden.

Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup
Slice French bread into 20 slices, 1-inch each. (Use any extra bread for garlic toast or bread crumbs). Arrange slices in a generously buttered 9 by 13-inch flat baking dish in 2 rows, overlapping the slices. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and beat with a rotary beater or whisk until blended but not too bubbly. Pour mixture over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the milk-egg mixture. Spoon some of the mixture in between the slices. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread Praline Topping evenly over the bread and bake for 40 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden. Serve with maple syrup.
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and blend well. Makes enough for Baked French Toast Casserole.
