Amish Breakfast Casserole

We’ve enjoyed a few hearty breakfast casseroles while visiting an Amish inn. When I asked for a recipe, one of the ladies told me the ingredients right off the top of her head.

The first time I tasted this recipe was back in the mid 2000s when a Nigerian couple who attended our Sunday school class brought this dish in for breakfast one Sunday morning. Everyone raved over it as it’s so creamy and delicious.

I just can’t do soggy! So when I came across this recipe for Amish Breakfast Casserole that didn’t include bread, AND had earned rave reviews, I knew I needed to put my own twist on it and give it a try.Hearty breakfast bake eaten during a visit to an Amish inn. When I asked for the recipe, one of the ladies told me the ingredients right off the top of her head. I modified it to create this easy breakfast casserole my family loves.
