3-CHEESE BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

3-Cheese Breakfast Casserole combines cheddar, Swiss and cottage cheese along with hash browns and your favorite breakfast meat!

3-Cheese Breakfast Casserole is one of my favorite breakfast casserole recipes, and I’ve tried quite a few! Although this recipe is traditionally served for breakfast, we often have it for dinner at my house – you just can’t go wrong with three kinds of cheese in the same dish!

We usually use sausage but you can also use bacon or ham or even leave the meat out and add more veggies. Beyond the eggs, cheese and hash browns, the recipe is very versatile and you can customize it however you would like! Another thing that I love about breakfast casseroles like this one is that you can assemble everything the night before, leave it in the refrigerator and then bake it first thing in the morning. This way you get a few extra minutes to sleep in and you can still enjoy a delicious breakfast!

3-Cheese Breakfast Casserole

  • 1 pound sausage (you can use bacon or even ham instead)
  • 1 medium onion, diced (I used about 1/4 cup of minced dried onions)
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups frozen shredded hash browns
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups Swiss cheese, shredded (I only had slices so I tore them into small pieces)
  1. Cook sausage and onion until sausage is fully cooked.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and then add the sausage/onion mixture.
  3. Pour the mixture into a 9X13 pan and bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes.  Let the casserole stand for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.  Enjoy!

  1. We have been making a Christmas morning breakfast casserole for years. It is a bread based recipe. Your recipe sounded SO good , I made it and loved it. Sent recipe to other family members– vote taken– THIS will be our new Christmas morning casserole from now on. Thanks ever so much for sharing.

  2. Our family has been making a bread based recipe for years. A family tradition so to speak. We started making this recipe a few years ago and quickly forgot about the bread based one (see Deloris’s remarks above). We love it and this has become our new family tradition. We have been hosting the family xmas brunch for three years now and this is has been the staple. We love it.

    • I haven’t tried this, but I’m guessing it would be fine. You could also split the recipe into 2 8X8 pans and then freeze one to bake later.
