Creamy bacon and egg casserole topped with cheese – perfect for brunch or an easy supper!
On my Facebook page, I recently asked my readers what kind of recipes they would like from me. I am interested in knowing what my readers want! Many of you said you would like easy supper ideas. Now, I know an egg dish doesn’t necessarily make you think of supper, but my family loves having breakfast for supper.
Another item mentioned was ease of preparation. I have that one covered with this recipe! All you need is your blender! Or, if you do not have a blender, a bowl and a good hand mixer will work. One bowl and done! As a mom, (who already has so many things to do), that sounds great!
Another bonus is that this recipe does not require any special ingredients, and it is also budget friendly! Packed with protein and hearty flavor, this is something you can feel good about serving your family.
I baked my casserole in an iron skillet, but you could also use an 8×8 Pyrex dish. Keep in mind that the different size may require a slightly adjusted baking time. You will know your casserole is finished when it is set in the middle.Creamy bacon and egg casserole topped with cheese - perfect for brunch or an easy supper!Click To Tweet
What you will need for this recipe:
2 Cups Cottage Cheese
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 Teaspoon Thyme
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Cup Diced Onion
1/2 Cup Bacon Pieces
1 Cup Frozen Spinach
1 1/4 Cups Shredded Cheese
This dish is completely customizable to your family’s taste preferences. If you prefer sausage over bacon, then use cooked sausage in place of the bacon. If your family does not like spinach, but you love peppers, then leave the spinach out and add chopped peppers! The list could go on, but you get the idea. Feel free to add whatever vegetables you like. You could also play around with different varieties of cheese to get a different flavor. I’m thinking Pepper Jack would give it a nice pop! I like to top mine with a dollop of sour cream and a little extra cheese and bacon!
