Answers to some questions that you may have about this recipe:
Can this breakfast casserole be made ahead? Yes. You can put it together in the baking dish the day before, cover with plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake it.
Is it freezable? Yes. After baking it, you can freeze it, but I recommend that you cut it into individual portions before freezing it so that you don’t have to reheat the entire casserole.
Can you reheat it? Yes, if reheating the entire casserole, preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake until warmed through to 160 degrees, about 25-30 minutes. You can reheat individual portions in the microwave for about a minute or two or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. If reheating from frozen, increase the microwave time to 3-5 minutes.
What to serve with it? This dish is great on its own, but I recommend that you serve it with a side of fresh seasonal fruit to balance out the saltiness from the bacon with something sweet.
Is it gluten free? Yes it is. It contains not wheat or oats.
How many people does this recipe serve? This recipe serves 8-12 people. The calorie count noted in the recipe is for 12 servings.

What is a breakfast casserole? Technically, a casserole is the dish that you use to both cook and serve the food. Over time, this term has evolved to include the food itself. So a breakfast casserole is a recipe made up of typical breakfast ingredients that you would bake in the oven in a casserole dish and then serve in that same dish. The most popular breakfast casseroles are made up of some combination of eggs, potatoes, meat and cheese, but you can get creative and make something else like our whole grain Pancake Breakfast Casserole.
Casseroles are great for busy cooks because they are a convenient way to feed a crowd. In addition, most of the work is done by your oven. It’s a one-dish meal, so clean up is quick.
