Hurry Up Breakfast! I’m Hungry

Do you find yourself rushing out the door in the morning, only grabbing a granola bar or whatever you can consume quickly (and safely) while you’re driving? Or maybe you are the type of person that would love to bake a breakfast for yourself or the family, but don’t know what to make that’s quick and that everyone will eat.

Never fear – the all inclusive breakfast meal is here!

The Hurry Up Breakfast is made ahead on the night before you need it, when you have a little time to spare. It then sits out and gets put in the oven while you get on with your morning routine.


1 pound crumbled bacon (can be jarred or cooked, cooled and crumbled)

2 c cubed ham

1 sm onion chopped

10 slices of bread, cubed in to bite sized pieces

1 c cubed cooked potatoes

3 c shredded cheese

8 eggs, beaten

3 c skim milk

1 tbsp Worchestershire sauce

1 tsp mustard

pinch salt


Prepare bacon if needed. In a large skillet, cook the bacon or pour in the pieces to warm up. Add the ham and the onion and cook until the onions are tender. Drain the mixture.

In a deep 9 x 13 pan, grease it well. Layer the bread pieces on the bottom. Then spread the potatoes, and then the cheese. Sprinkle the bacon, ham and onion mixture on top. Repeat the layers if you have more ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and milk until smooth. Pour over the entire mixture. Cover with aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator over night.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In the morning, the pan needs to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking. Once it has sat for 30 minutes, uncover and place in the oven. Cook for 60 – 70 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut in to squares and serve.

The dish is perfect to cook while you are in the shower and getting dressed or getting the kids dressed. You can take your time and know that breakfast will be ready when you are. Everyone can eat before they run out the door and it is a very filling breakfast. There’s an ingredient for everyone inside. You can also remove ingredients that are not liked and substitute for others.

It is ideal to make this dish on Christmas Eve, so that when Christmas morning comes, you can place the dish in the oven to cook while you open presents. That way, as soon as everyone is done wrapping and announce they are starving, a super filling breakfast is already ready!

Other ingredients that can be added to the dish:

chopped mushrooms

black olives

green peppers
