Amish Breakfast Casserole Recipe


1 pound sliced bacon, diced
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
6 eggs, lightly beaten
4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese
Directions                                                                              In a large skillet, cook bacon and onion until bacon is crisp; drain. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir in bacon mixture. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 12 servings.

January has been comfort food for us, with me being sick so much. This past month, we have been in the mood for breakfast bakes, creamy casseroles and classic chicken dishes. Guaranteed, these hearty recipes will remain favorites all winter long. Keep you warm all day long.
you can replace the bacon with breakfast sausage too, makes a good variety.

I have made this for a Bible Study Brunch and was a huge success. The potatoes are a welcomed change from bread and the cottage cheese makes it oh so creamy. Wouldn't change a thing and will definately make again. Hope you enjoy your breakfast...

It was nice to see that you'd been over to see me...
Vie enjoyed catching up on your blog this morning! I do come to see you, but don't always take the time to comment, but get so much out of it. You do a great job!
Always uplifting...
Yes, it sure has been a cold winter! Ive burned a lot of firewood! As Grover says, we can make heat but we can't make cold! And with a 50%surcharge on our electricity, you be assured we are not paying for the heat to run if at all possible! Lol
Do you think we will have less bugs this summer?!?,
Because of it?!
One can only pray..,,, ;)
Love ya xo

This sounds like a yummy casserole, but I am a bit hesitant using cottage cheese as it's not quite my favorite thing to eat. Can you taste it much in the casserole?

I'm glad to hear that your son is doing well, praise God! I hope that you begin to feel better yourself.
