I admit that I have quite a history of poor results with casseroles. Sometimes I can’t tell if it is a me-issue or a recipe-issue. Outside of a good classic lasagna (try my skillet version here!) or shepherd’s pie – I am quite proud of those two! – they just haven’t been for me. Until this cheesy egg and biscuit casserole! While doing test bakes, my family gave rave reviews and it disappeared faster than I expected!
This easy-to-follow recipe bakes up a filling, cheesy, and comforting casserole that is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or even dinner. It is perfect for a potluck event or for doubling to feed a crowd at home. Additionally, it freezes well if you want to stock your freezer on the weekends. I love any meal that can be prepped ahead to free up time during the busy weekdays! Whether you’re a casserole expert or a bit of an amateur like me, then this cheesy egg and biscuit casserole recipe is for you!
After cooking, you can refrigerate this casserole for up to four days, or freeze it for up to three months. I love these Pyrex baking dishes with lids! These help reduce the amount of plastic wrap or foil you use – just let the casserole cool thoroughly, close it with the included lid, and pop it in your fridge or freezer! These baking dishes make refrigerator and freezer organization really easy. They are also great for transporting dishes for potlucks and other gatherings.
