Egg Casserole Bites

Egg Casserole Bites with bacon - a super simple weeknight dinner recipe

My family loves eggs. We typically consider it “running low” when we are down to 2 cartons of eggs. The thing I love about eggs is that they are packed with healthy protein, which fills little tummies and helps keep blood sugar levels stable.

I realize that this meal looks more like a breakfast menu than a dinner menu. You can certainly make this for breakfast if you want.  We prefer it for our evening meal. There are usually plenty of leftovers to save for breakfast or for lunch the next day (think lunch box food!)

Perfectly portioned for everyone in the family, this recipe for bite-sized casserole is appealing to kids. They love the shape and size! I finished off the meal with some bacon (also made in the oven.)

  1. I serve breakfast for dinner all the time! I generally do not make breakfast on weekdays, so we just switch it up and have breakfast for dinner! I guess some people might find it weird, maybe?

    I’m going to give these a try on our next breakfast for dinner night, Vanessa. They sound tasty and I like the built in portion control. It will be nice to have the eggs baking away in the oven while I’m busy with other things, too.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe!
