Any Time Of The Day Baked Potato Egg Casserole

This versatile Baked Potato Egg Casserole has been created and tested in its entirety by myself. 

By that I mean I had to eat the entire recipe that took me a few days since no one else eats potatoes here.

Saying that it has gone viral in my recipe box because of how simple it is to make and flexible with ingredients. 

At the time I created this Mrs. CBB was fasting so she wanted nothing to do with it but she said it smelled good.

Keto-Friendly Potato Egg Casserole

When you embark on the keto lifestyle potatoes are a big no but the eggs are a huge yes. 

That’s why I wanted to create something dead-easy to make on a weekend morning, breakfast or even dinner. 

Include Your Favourite Toppings

The great part about making a baked potato egg casserole is that it’s flexible with the ingredients.

Having said that whether you are keto or not add

  • Ham, Salami, Proscuitto and so on.
  • Sausage
  • Mini-Meatballs
  • Bacon
  • Pasta or Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded cheese
  • Green peas
  • Corn niblets
  • Tofu
  • Thinly sliced vegetables.

Hey, you can even add cooked ground beef to the potato egg casserole as well. 

I absolutely love recipes such as this which is why I wanted to post how easy it is to make a baked potato egg casserole. 

From there you can create whatever flavour and ingredient profile that you like.

If you have picky eaters in the family or someone who doesn’t care for potatoes there’s a simple hack. 

Don’t add them to that part of the casserole, it’s that simple. 

Note: Baking times may increase based on what extra ingredients you include

Kid Certified Potato Egg Casserole

This is a family recipe.

Treat this potato egg casserole like a rectangle pizza where you can add ingredients to sections. 

If you have children who you think will eat the potato egg casserole involving them is a great idea. 

Finely slice or chop their favourite protein or vegetables and put them in bowls.

Give each mini chef a section of the potato egg casserole to add the ingredients that they like. 

Being a parent and involving your child in the kitchen is a great way to build confidence. 

It also allows them to get creative, boast about what they’ve made and participate more often. 

Simple Recipes Means More Time To Chat

Breakfast egg casserole

Anytime I can make an easy recipe that is baked or made in the crockpot or instant pot, I love it. 

For me, this means if I have company over for breakfast I can be talking to them and not cooking. 

Other recipes such as soups, stews and sauces are also relaxing as well once it’s in the pot and simmering.

Canadian Casserole Recipes For Newbies

I honestly think this is my first casserole on the blog and a running joke on my Facebook page about me. 

The “What’s For Dinner” post that I’ve shared nightly for 9 years wanted me to make a Casa Roll Eh! Get it?

I’ve never made one before I that’s how I would spell it because it seems like such a popular Canadian recipe theme. 

In the UK our popular recipe list is pretty small although I’ve always been open to a new cuisine. 

My father on the other hand is not and even when my parents travel he still wants a proper Sunday dinner.

I’ve found that in Canada if you can make it and bake it you’ve just bought yourself time to do something else. 

Cooking With Your Spouse Is Not Always A Smart Idea

Our kitchen isn’t that big compared to kitchen spaces built for new homes so we bang into each other.

Having said that I’m not so much a multi-tasker in the kitchen because that’s when I burn everything. 

However, Mrs. CBB waves her hands in the air like Chef Emeril and tells me to get out. 

When she means BAM she’s serious.

For some reason for multi-taskers people get in the way of their success and she’s probably right. 

So, after 14 years I’ve learned that when she’s cooking I stay away and play with our son.

Printable Recipe Is Below

Ingredients:

  • 12 large eggs 
  • Mini potatoes (12) or 6 medium to large potatoes that you prefer

Putting The Baked Potato Egg Casserole Together

  • If you are using baby potatoes as I did wash them and scrub any dirt off. 
  • Slice each potato into 1/4 inch and put them on the baking sheet or roasting pan 
  • Add 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil or enough to coat the potatoes well.
  • Toss a sprig of fresh Rosemary (produce section at the grocery store, dried or fresh from the garden)
  • Note: If you use fresh Rosemary don’t forget to remove it before you add the eggs. 
  • Add the salt and pepper 
  • Mix the potatoes around and baked them until golden in a 375-degree oven.
  • Remove the baking sheet and let them cool for 5 minutes moving the potatoes around so they are flat. 

Adding The Egg Mixture

  • If the family is involved and someone doesn’t want potatoes just keep a section plain with just eggs.
  • Add the big bowl of eggs right over the baked potatoes so they are covering each potato.
  • This is where the kids can come in and add whatever ingredients they like to their section.
  • Have them do it quickly by preparing ahead of time what each child wants in their section. 
  • Bake at 350 until the eggs are fluffy and cooked through 10-15 minutes depending on your oven and pan. 
  • Remove from the oven and let the casserole relax for 5 minutes.

Cut into squares and serve on its own or with a big dollop of sour cream and shredded cheese. 

Add whatever you like or leave it plain as I did.
