Tips Tricks and FAQs 

  • I know it only takes a few minutes to prepare, but to make things even easier I like to prepare the casserole the night before. After I pour the egg mixture on the casserole, I seal it with the lid and place it in the fridge. If you don’t have a 9×13 pan with a lid, you can also use some plastic or cling wrap. Then in the morning all I have to do is preheat the oven and pop it in!
  • For the cheese lovers out there, you can shred about ½ to 1 cup of cheese to put on the casserole about 5 minutes before it’s done baking. It’ll add a cheesy delicious topping to the casserole that makes it even more delicious!
  • You can double this recipe with no problem! This is a great recipe to make when you have family in town, for big sleepovers, or any other time that you have lots of mouths to feed. Just double the ingredients, split them into the respective pans, and split the egg mixture as evenly as you can before putting the pans in the oven.

Storage

Once baked, you can keep this farmers market egg casserole in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. 

You can also store it before baking to make things even easier. After putting the casserole together, seal it or put a lid on your dish and it will stay fresh for up to 24 hours before baking.
