5 Very Cheesy Breakfast Meal

Good morning, cheese. Or, more like, good morning because… cheese. That’s right, everybody’s favorite gooey ingredient is the magic that makes many casseroles — breakfast and otherwise — crave-able. We’re going to go to bed early, just so we can wake up and dig into these warm, cozy, cheesy breakfast casseroles.

1) Cheesy Bacon Breakfast Casserole

This one’s almost like a quiche without the fuss of a crust. It’s got a quivering texture similar to custard, even though it uses an egg substitute mixed with milk. A cup of cheddar means it’s a long way from lean though. After the easy prep, it’s bubbly and ready in 30. Serve some Pico de Gallo on the side.

2) Cheesy Chorizo and Egg Sweet Potato Boats

These are perfection if you’re not into sharing. Twice-baked and topped with Pepper Jack goodness, these boats float the genius combo of spicy sausage and velvety sweet potatoes, with an egg plopped into the middle of all the fun. If you need to cool things down a bit, pass some sour cream.

3) Egg and Cornbread Bake

Hello, Southern Comfort Food! This preparation might remind you of Thanksgiving stuffing — cornbread dressing mix is one of the ingredients — but it goes above and beyond satisfying by including loads of ham and shredded cheddar. The result is a filling way to start the day that’s got a hint of sweet from the cornbread.

4) Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

A true superstar on the site, racking up more than 1,700 reviews for an average of 4.5 stars. Bravo to the ultra-cheesy double shot, combining cheddar and Parmesan with frozen potatoes and sour cream. Serve alongside softly scrambled eggs and you’ll be fueled up for a post-breakfast 5K. Or a trip to the couch, where there’s no judgement for sinking into a food coma.

5) Chef John’s Spinach and Feta Pie

What happens when you go for a mashup of a baked fritatta and an omelette? You create a pie with a whole lot of personality. Kind of fitting, considering Chef John’s behind this clever creation. Oh, and yes, there’s crumbled bits of crispy bacon, too.
