Helpful Info for the Biscuit Breakfast Bake

Having made this recipe a good many times, I have some super helpful tips to make this dish its best when preparing it. These tips work with whatever variation you use or how you modify your ingredients. How these tips work is to maximize the ease of this breakfast bake. You will understand more about how to prepare, bake, and enjoy for the maximum benefits to you and your taste buds!

Your Potatoes – However you do your potatoes will work just fine. I have used frozen bagged potatoes, pre-shredded, and it has come out great! I personally keep a lot of whole potatoes handy, so I tend to go for shredding my own fresh potatoes.

No extra oils and grease – Be sure to drain the juices from any meat you add to this recipe before adding in with the eggs. You don’t want it to be soupy.

No lid or foil – Adding foil to cover your dish is an option if you like; however, I highly recommend you do not use a lid or tinfoil. The reason being that cooking this dish uncovered will give you crunchy edges and topping.

Signs the breakfast bake is done – There are some signs to look out for to know that this dish is done cooking. The first is that the internal temperature is 165F for safety reasons. You also don’t want to overcook it, so it’s a great idea to know the tell-tale signs it’s time to take it out. Sometimes altitude, different ovens, etc. can factor into cooking times. For this dish, the edges around the top will be browned. The bake itself will be firm.

Prep and Storing Your Leftovers

I like to make this breakfast bake fresh when I am ready to serve it. However, it also works just as well being made a day or so early. Because, let’s face it, sometimes it is just nice to just pop breakfast in the oven for a warmup. I particularly enjoy making this dish a little early when I know I am going to have company over.

Freezing:

The breakfast bake does great in the freezer! After you have made your dish, or with leftovers, allow the food to completely cool down. The reason you want it to cool completely is the water droplet from condensation can make a dish more prone to freezer burn. Once cooled, place the dish in a freezer bag. Heat for around 20-30 minutes once you are ready to heat it up.

Make Ahead Prep:

Prepare your breakfast bake for the oven; however, instead of baking, cover and place it in the fridge until you are ready for it. It handles well in the fridge for around two days. When you do bake it, I suggest you keep a close eye on the internal temperature of the dish when following baking directions. The fridge can make the ingredients extra cool sometimes.
