  • Going to an Easter brunch? Bring along this delicious egg casserole to share, courtesy of Two Peas & Their Pod, that can be made the night before in about 20 minutes of prep time – what’s not to love?!
    • 1 lb. bacon, cut into 1/2-inch strips
    • 1 yellow onion, diced
    • 1 red bell pepper, seeds removed and diced
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 12 large eggs
    • 1 cup milk
    • 3 cups frozen diced potatoes (you don’t have to thaw or cook the potatoes)
    • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 2 green onions, chopped
      • Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Cook bacon until crispy, cool, then chop and set aside. Add onion and red pepper to a skillet and cook over medium heat until tender. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes, set aside. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and whisk in the milk. Stir in the cooked vegetables, potatoes, and 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Set 3/4 cup of bacon aside and stir in the rest. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with remaining cheese and green onions. Bake for 20 minutes so the eggs start to set up. Carefully add the remaining bacon to the top of the casserole. Bake for an additional 20 minutes or until the eggs are firm and the top is slightly golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm.
