Sharing is caring!

With the holidays approaching, and family arriving (though not for us this year), you’ll want to have some quick and easy breakfast/brunch ideas to have handy. One thing that I love to do is make cinnamon rolls or set out a simple breakfast buffet table with selections such as scrambled eggs, bacon, breakfast sausage, English muffins, and bagels. Another way I like to prepare breakfast or brunch for a larger crowd is to make a breakfast casserole. Casseroles tend to be a staple in our house at this time of the year anyway, so why not apply that to breakfast? I just had to try this delicious canned biscuit breakfast bake recipe.

Easy bacon, egg, and biscuit breakfast bake

This recipe was adapted slightly from here

After doing a Google search for breakfast casseroles that use bacon, I came across one that I thought we could definitely do. Next time I know what I’ll try differently, but all in all this was absolutely delicious and so easy to put together!

Canned Biscuit Breakfast Bake Recipe

Yield: 8 servings (if cutting them on the larger side)


8 pieces of bacon (chopped or cut into small pieces. We bake our bacon when we’re using it in recipes.)

1 can of Biscuits (we used Flaky, Jumbo biscuits though I would recommend regular style or make your own biscuit dough.)

6 eggs

1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of cheese (we used Taco blend for a different flavor though I think a nice cheddar mix would work well too)

1/4 cup of milk

Optional Ingredients:

1 diced green pepper

1 medium onion- diced and sauteed


* Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 13×9 baking dish or line with aluminum foil

* In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, cheese, and bacon

* If you are using refrigerated biscuit mix, separate biscuits and then cut into four pieces each (if you are using your own biscuit dough, skip this step)

* Gently fold in biscuit pieces (or if you are using your own biscuit dough, drop by spoonful into the mixture) until they are well coated

* Pour the biscuit mixture into your baking dish, and try to create one layer

* Cover with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 30 minutes

Best served warm though this also tasted delicious the day after.

The next time that we make this, we’re going to add in green pepper and onion, just to give it a little more flavor and to make it more rounded as a breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, I have no complaints with how this turned out! The combination of bacon, egg, biscuits, and cheese is definitely a favorite of mine and I love how easy this was to make. The eggs somewhat settled on the bottom and reminded of a cross between an omelet and a quiche. Using the taco cheese mix gave it a bit more flavor than using regular cheddar and I really enjoyed that as well.

I could also see myself making this for coffee hour at church, though I think I might have to double the recipe if I do that. This looks like it would double easily though.

Baking the bacon I think makes a difference too. Though you can fry the bacon in a pan, I like baked bacon for recipes because it’s easier to work with. Plus, I don’t have to worry about bacon grease splattering everywhere.

How to Bake Bacon

What you need:

One package of bacon (I recommend Thick cut for baking)

One cookie sheet

Aluminum foil


How To:

Prepare cookie sheet by lining with aluminum foil

Lay bacon on the cookie sheet evenly, though if you need to cram them on there, you can. I can usually fit a regular sized package of bacon on one cookie sheet without problems

Place cookie sheet into the oven and preheat to 400 degrees

Once done preheating, bake for an additional 16 minutes

When bacon is done baking, let cool slightly until you are able to work with it with your hands (… optionally, you can taste test and make sure that it’s not going to burn your mouth). Angle the cookie sheet slightly by placing a rolled kitchen towel or folded potholder under one side to help drain the bacon grease to one corner.

What do you like to make for breakfast when you have company?
