One thing I love about breakfast casseroles is how versatile they are. You can easily add or substitute ingredients to use what you have on hand.

My mom always called it "the kitchen sink casserole" because she would throw in whatever she had - everything but the kitchen sink. You can do the same. Add any leftover vegetables, meat or cheese. It will be delicious!

See printable recipe card below for all ingredients, specific measurements, and complete instructions.

  • Diced Potatoes - This recipes uses frozen diced potatoes with peppers and onions.
  • Sausage - Use your favorite brand of breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled. Mild, medium or spicy will work.
  • Bacon - Crispy cooked bacon chopped into bite size pieces add some crunch and flavor to this casserole.
  • Ham - I buy the cooked Diced ham from the grocery store. But if you have leftover ham just dice it up and use it.
  • Cheese - I used cheddar jack cheese. I recommend freshly grating your own cheese as it melts more smoothly than pre-shredded cheese.
  • Spinach - Use fresh baby spinach
  • Eggs - For this recipe you will need 8 large eggs.
  • Milk - I like to use whole milk when cooking but you can use low-fat milk also.
  • Salt and Pepper - Season with salt and pepper to your own taste.

How To Make Meaty Breakfast Casserole

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spread the diced potatoes in an even layer in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
  3. Over medium-high heat cook the bacon in a large skillet until crispy. Remove from pan and set aside. Drain grease.
  4. Add sausage and cook until browned, crumbling into small pieces as it cooks. Drain any excess grease.
  5. Sprinkle the sausage, bacon, diced ham, and spinach over the top of the potatoes.
  6. Top with the shredded cheese and spinach.
  7. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the entire dish.
  8. Bake uncovered for 50 to 60 minutes, until the eggs are set and cooked through.
