This super easy One Pan Breakfast Bake has crispy bacon, hash browns, and eggs, and takes just 5 minutes of hands-on time to create a complete and delicious breakfast.
We love a good, hearty breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day, after all. Hash browns, eggs, bacon, toast, yum! Maybe throw in a banana for a little healthy sweetness. What we don’t love? Cold cereal. It never fills anyone up and the kids are always hungry within an hour or two.
It is so important to have quick, easy breakfast recipes, especially in the winter when everyone is just a little bit more hungry. But quick does not have to mean expensive, processed, or unsatisfying. This recipe will ensure your family gets a delicious and hearty breakfast to start their day, and only requires 5 minutes of hands on time!
Regular or thick cut bacon in a One Pan Breakfast Bake:
This recipe calls for thick cut bacon. It takes a bit longer to cook than regular cut bacon and is the perfect balance for the amount of time it takes to cook the hash browns. You want to make sure they cook at the same rate. If you like super crispy bacon you can try out regular cut.
The cheese in this recipe is completely optional. We are total cheese lovers, and can’t resist some good old cheesy hash browns. You can also get a little more creative and add some spices to your hash browns like garlic powder, onion powder, or paprika.
Other Add ins:
If you are really feeling fancy, throw in some veggies like diced bell pepper and chopped onions. It takes a little extra time but you can always prepare this before hand. Diced veggies like that stay good in an airtight container for several days. And adding vegetables in with your breakfast is always going to be a good thing.
