Amish Egg Bake  #egg bake #egg casserole #gluten-free

Delicious no-bread egg bake for any holiday brunch! #egg bake #egg casserole #gluten-free



I love egg bakes or egg casseroles!

(I think I said that in another egg bake post!)

Egg bakes are so easy to serve whether you have a big or small group for brunch at holiday time or anytime!

  Easter is  a good time to get your egg bake recipes together and this is a great one!

The Amish Egg Bake is refrigerated overnight so it is ready to place in the oven in the morning.  I really like is that it has no bread in it so it is gluten-free! Also, you don’t feel like you’re overdosing on carbs if you serve  muffins, rolls or scones with it.

Your kids will like this one, too! (my grandchildren liked it)  Just don’t tell them there is cottage cheese in there!


1 pound sliced bacon (diced,  ham (diced) or sausage ( I’ve used Jimmy Dean’s)

1 medium sweet onion, chopped

6 eggs, lightly beaten

 30 oz. bag of  frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed

2 cups (8 oz. ) shredded cheddar cheese

1-1/2 cups (12 oz.) cottage cheese

1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Optional items: red or green peppers, roasted red peppers, mushrooms (sauté with onions) or sun-dried tomatoes


In a large skillet, cook bacon or sausage and onion until done, drain. (I used turkey ham so just sautéed the onions separately and added the turkey ham)  In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir meat mixture of choice into the potato, cheese, and eggs.  Transfer to a greased 9×13 pan and refrigerate overnight.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until set and bubbly.

Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

  2. how do I print it?

    • This is an earlier post and I didn’t have the print capabilities on for it! Sorry!

  3. Hi Phyllis! I’m stopping over from Let’s Get Real today. My family loves breakfast foods. We eat them all day. This is very similar to an egg bake that I make, but mine does not include the cottage cheese. Do you think that adds an extra creaminess to it?

    • Yes, and more protein. I use the non-fat cottage cheese!
      Thanks for stopping by,

    • Does anyone know how many this feeds?

      • Being it’s baked in an 9X12 pan, it feeds 10 or so depending on how big you cut the pieces.

  4. Beautiful presentation. These look amazing. Thanks for sharing!
