Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole is one of my favorite breakfast casserole recipe. I love bacon and I am a believer of the saying “you can never go wrong with bacon” — I think that it is true. Bacon makes dishes tastes better and this Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole is the proof.
Preparing your own Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole is really simple. All you need to do is to first prepare the bacon by cooking it until crisp. I know that most of you are familiar with cooking bacon, but for those who are not here are some ideas on how to cook bacon.
How to Cook Bacon on a stove top using a pan
Cooking bacon over a stove top using a pan is the most common method of cooking bacon. You will need a wide frying pan for this method. I do this by arranging the bacon strips on the pan then I turn the heat on. You’ll notice that the oil will form while the bacon starts to cook. Grab a spoon and scoop the excess fat out of the pan while the bacon cooks; this helps the bacon melt more fat and get crisp quicker. Once one side seems to be crisp, use a tong to turn the bacon over so that the other side gets crispy — as you can imagine, this will require you to be in front of the stove-top all the time. Also, there is a possibility that oil from the bacon may splatter.
How to Cook Bacon in the Oven
This method of cooking bacon will require a wide baking tray and aluminum foil. This is done by lining a sheet of aluminum foil on the baking tray. Arrange the bacon strips flat over the foil. Preheat the oven to 400F and bake the bacon for 16 to 18 minutes or until crisp. You’ll see that the fats turns to oil; the good thing about it is that you can easily discard the oil and your bacon will lesser in fat while being crispy.
How to Cook Bacon in the microwave
I once tried to use the microwave to cook bacon. It is true that cooking bacon in the microwave can produce crispy bacon similar to the ones cooked in a pan or baked, but you have to use a tool called the microwave bacon cooker. All you need to do is arrange the bacon on the microwave bacon cooker and follow the instructions on how to cook bacon in the microwave in terms of time and power settings.
Regardless of how you decide to cook bacon, what we need to accomplish for this bacon and egg breakfast casserole is nice crispy bacon. Once you have the bacon ready, you can either crumble or chop the bacon. This will be added to the mixture composed of egg, cheese, milk, and green onions which will be baked in the oven to produce our delicious bacon and egg breakfast casserole.
