Bacon Crouton Breakfast Casserole
Who knew? Croutons are my new secret weapon in my quest to make new and interesting breakfast casseroles. As I made this dish, I felt like I was on the show Chopped. I didn't have high expectations - thinking I was using a mystery ingredient in place of something more fitting. I couldn't have been more wrong. This casserole was fantastic! It had just the right amount of bacon. The croutons softened, but still held their shape. The vegetables added the perfect amount of freshness. Someone in the test kitchen said, "It reminds me of pizza. I'm not sure exactly why." I understood what they meant. This dish was even better as reheated leftovers, just as pizza often is. I loved this recipe and I'll make it again for sure. (This recipe was submitted in 2007. It was tested and photographed in August 2015.)
How To Make a Bacon Crouton Breakfast Casserole
Over medium-high heat, saute the pepper and mushrooms in the retained bacon grease. Cooking until tender. Drain over paper towels. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Prepare a medium-small baking dish (like 7x7 inch) with a light coating of cooking spray.
Layer the croutons in the bottom of the dish and drizzle evenly with melted butter.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, crumbled bacon, 1/2 of the cheese, peppers, onion, mushrooms, mustard, salt, and pepper. Pour this mixture over the croutons. Top the casserole with the remaining shredded cheese.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until eggs are set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let the casserole stand 10 minutes. Cut into equal portions and serve warm.
Cooking Notes From Mr Breakfast
I deviated from the submitted recipe just slightly. I replaced the green onion with 1/4 cup chopped white onion which I sauteed with the green pepper. Rather than mixing most of the ingredients together, I created layers: 1) butter soaked croutons 2) vegetables 3) bacon 4) cheese and 5) the beaten egg mixture. I don't think that it impacted the outcome very much. I mostly did that for the pictures.
I used an 8 x 8-inch pan. I believe it would have been better in a 7 x 7-inch pan as the recipe indicates. My pieces were just a tad too flat.
You could use really dry bread in place of the croutons, but if you have seasoned croutons like garlic or herb, use those. It makes this familiar family dish taste fancy and people will ask you what your secret is.
4 slices of bacon, cooked
butter (for cooking)
- Scramble up the eggs in a bowl.
- Heat up a skillet with a small sliver of butter. Once the butter is completely melted, pour the eggs onto the hot skillet.
- Scramble until the eggs are completely cooked through.
- Separate the eggs into four tortillas. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle on, along with the taco cheese and salsa.
- Serve immediately.

How would you rate Spanish Breakfast Casserole with Eggs and Bacon?
Forgot to add that I used a baguette and a half instead of bread. It created a heavier mixture which was wonderful and when I baked the croutons they didn’t burn and were perfect at 450
Great recipe- rave reviews- because I can’t have dairy added coconut cream instead. My friend doesn’t like bacon so used soy chorizo instead. Will definately make it again
I am definitely saving this to make again later-It was kind of like a breakfast dressing, light, fluffy and comforting. But I wanted to echo the comments before mine. I took them into consideration before I made this and I was really happy with the results–folks even asked for the recipe. I made a handful of tweaks based on personal preference/what was available to me, but here are the important ones: _Two 16oz. Jars of Roasted Red Peppers was a great and needed change in order to make sure there was liquid to submerge the bread in. This was the biggest change I made from the original recipe, but in just one of those jars was at most 4.5 peppers, and with their note of getting about 12 peppers in–I feel justified in recommending this change. _Have some extra cream on hand just in case you feel like you need help "submerging" the croutons in the baking dish. _Baked at 350. The final result was moist but not wet (and more importantly not dry) texture with a crispy top, and I can't wait to eat again.

Jars of Roasted Red Peppers was great and needed change in order to make sure there was liquid to submerge the bread in. This was the biggest change I made from the original recipe, and maybe with this entirely changed what was the intended texture, but again, we were into it. However, in just one of those jars was at most 4.5 peppers, and with their note of getting about 12 peppers–I feel justified in recommending this change. _Have some extra cream on hand just in case you feel like you need help in the "submerging" in the baking dish. _Baked at 350 The final result was moist but not wet (and more importantly not dry) texture and I can't wait to eat again.
This is a great recipe. The typo is that 4 - 12 oz jars of roasted red peppers are required. Everything else is correct when you have that liquid. Also I used Parmesan on the eggs at the end as suggested but this could also benefit from the richness of some feta. Used basil instead of parsley because it was handy.
Thanks to those who commented earlier, this dish turned out well. I lowered the temp for the croutons and overall bake. That said, I’m also wondering if the liquid measurements are correct - there was no liquid into which I was to submerge the croutons. Also, the ingredient list states 1/2 c +3 tbsp olive oil, but there only seems to be a requirement for 1/4 c + 1/4 c - where is the remaining 3 tbsp to be used? I would make this again, but would add 1/2-1 c additional whipping cream.
I had a similar experience to Chikde, the oven temps seemed way too high. The croutons were too dry, crunchy, and took on too much color. There was zero sauce leftover after adding the pepper mixture and cream, maybe because the bread was too dried out. The final bake also burned the outside of the bread, just way too hot. I'll try it again, but with lower temps. Also may switch to half and half and double the amount to try and create some sauce.
Our experience was fairly good overall, with the following notations: 425 for toasting the bread was too high (our oven temp is correct), suggest 350 and maybe a bit more time and 1/3C olive oil. The 4 2 oz jars of peppers is just wrong. Use 8 oz. of roasted red peppers. We happened to use chipotle peppers in adobo rather than the Fresno chilis, minus the seeds, worked well. We added some sautéed mushrooms to the onions, nice. Could make with 8 eggs easily. MOST IMPORTANTLY: don’t bake it at 450, it’ll burn. Bake at 350, then increase to 425 - 450 after adding the eggs. Also, not sure where all the sauce for “submerging” the bread is supposed to come from, there isn’t that much, it’s all in the bread. We topped with some shredded Parmesan and cilantro, served with salsa and avocado slices on the side. Would definitely make again with the above changes.
Could someone who made this please clarify the four 2 ounce jar of roasted red peppers? There is no way 8 ounces of jarred red peppers is actually 12 peppers?

- Now, this TATER TOT BREAKFAST CASSEROLE from Real Housemoms looks like something my family would like!
- 1 pound bakery white bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (16 cups)
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 pound sliced applewood-smoked bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
- One 28-ounce can whole Italian tomatoes&mdashdrained, chopped and patted dry
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1/2 pound extra-sharp cheddar, shredded (about 2 cups)
- 1/2 pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
- 2 tablespoons snipped chives
- 1 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 8 large eggs
- Hot sauce, for serving
Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly oil a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. In a large bowl, toss the bread with the olive oil and spread on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, tossing once or twice, until the bread is golden and lightly crisp.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain reserve 2 tablespoons of the fat in the skillet.
Add the onion to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and crushed red pepper and cook until any liquid is evaporated, about 3 minutes.
Return the toasted bread cubes to the bowl. Add the contents of the skillet, along with the bacon, shredded cheeses, chives and broth. Stir until the bread is evenly moistened. Season with salt. Spread the mixture in the baking dish and cover with lightly oiled foil.
Bake the bread mixture in the center of the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the top is crispy, about 15 minutes longer. Carefully remove the baking dish from the oven and, using a ladle, press 8 indentations into the bread mixture. Crack an egg into each indentation. Return the dish to the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still runny. Serve the breakfast bake right away with hot sauce.
