Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole

The perfect way to start Christmas is with a delicious breakfast. This casserole is so easy to make ahead that all you have to do is heat it up on Christmas morning for a warm, flavorful breakfast that the whole family will love. With bacon and Cheddar cheese in the mix, it's hard to go wrong with a breakfast casserole recipe as flavorful and hearty as this one. Worcestershire sauce and a dash of Tabasco kick up the spice factor in this breakfast bake without making it too overwhelming. Give this yummy casserole a try and you'll see why it's one of our favorite ways to start the day!

Serves: 12

Cooking Time: 1 hr

  • 1 stick butter, melted and divided
  • 16 slices white bread or challah, crusts removed
  • 16 slices very thinly sliced Canadian bacon or ham
  • 16 slices sliced cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 4 drops Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup each diced red and green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 2 cups lightly crushed corn flakes
  1. Melt butter and brush inside a 9 x 13-inch casserole liberally with some of it.
  2. Assemble 8 “sandwiches” of bread, meat, cheese, bread and fit them into the casserole in one layer. Brush the top layer with some of the melted butter. 
  3. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the Worcestershire sauce, salt, mustard and peppers.  Whisk in the milk and pour over the bread layers in the casserole.  Sprinkle the top with red and green peppers and green onion.  Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight to absorb the custard mixture. 
  4. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the remaining butter (you may have to re-melt) with the crushed cereal. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the casserole and bake for 1 hour until the center is set. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I wasn't sure what to expect with the bread in here, but this casserole is surprisingly good! A little bit of kick, loved the crunch from the cereal topping as a contrast point.

The flavors in this casserole really did remind me of Christmas morning!

Wow, all of my favorite things in one casserole -- yum! The corn flakes added the perfect amount of crunch. It's definitely a great dish for Christmas morning, or any other time of the year!



The bacon must be pre-cooked before adding to the casserole. Unless you like semi-raw bacon and a greasy casserole.

Sorry for the delay on response guys! Yes I would say the bacon should definitely be cooked before adding to casserole. Many of our recipes are reader submitted, so if any other reader has a correction to this, we'd all love to hear it. Thanks so much for your feedback and questions!

The recipe sounds easy and delicious, but as one of the previous comments asked, and didn't get an answer, is the bacon cooked or raw before cooking the casserole?

Canadian Bacon is very similar to ham. It is already cooked when you purchase it (smoked?) and is usually available at the deli counter or in packages where deli meats are sold. It does not need to be cooked before-hand. Treat it as you would ham.

Sounds really sounds yummy!

What is Canadian Back Bacon?

The recipe shows the bacon cooked, but in the directions you say to putbr the bacon on top of bread and than cheese. What is the bacon cooked or not cooked?br Thank You'br Annette Foxbr
