When I was a child, I remember visiting family friends and waking up to the smell of something delicious baking in the oven, and when we wandered out to the kitchen, there would be an amazing breakfast waiting for us. It made me feel so loved!
I want people to feel warmly welcomed and loved when they visit me too, and that’s the inspiration behind this meal. A hot and hearty breakfast is the perfect way to start a morning and this corned beef breakfast bake recipe will satisfy bellies and put happy smiles of satisfaction on everyone’s faces as they begin the day.
I make it with feel-good ingredients like Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, eggs, corned beef and tater tots, and I’m specifying Sargento® cheese because it matters. Sargento® is always shredded fresh from blocks of real, natural cheese and the flavor and quality is unsurpassed. Get a fresh start with Sargento®, y’all. You will taste the difference.
So here’s how to make this scrumptious corned beef breakfast bake!
You’ll use two refrigerated pie crusts for the shell (one for each half), so form them into the shape of your greased baking dish. Seams showing won’t matter because you’ll be covering all that up with all your ingredients.
Next, layer the corned beef, tater tots, green onions, peppers and Sargento® cheese. Then, repeat those layers a second time.
When you’re ready to bake, add the egg and cream mixture, then sprinkle on more cheese and green onions.
Can you believe how simple it is to whip up a delicious breakfast with Sargento® cheese and eggs? It’s the perfect solution to easy and enjoyable breakfast prep, even when you’re short on time.
Now pop the dish in the oven for an hour and BAM! You’ve got yourself one heck of a great tasting breakfast.
When it comes out of the oven, let it rest for a while so the filling has a chance to settle a bit. Then cut it into slices and serve. It’s absolutely delicious!
It doesn’t take long to whip this up in the morning and have it ready to go in the oven, but if you’re going to have a busy morning, you can do everything except adding the filling. Pour that into the baking dish in the morning and then bake it in the pre-heated oven.
A second option is to bake the entire corned beef quiche the evening before and reheat each piece as needed. (It reheats beautifully.)
