Egg casseroles are great for so many things. They are a quick way to serve a large number at a brunch. They work well for meal prep as a quick grab-and-go breakfast option. And because there are so many options, they can be quick to make with ingredients on hand, like this Italian breakfast casserole recipe.

This egg casserole has an Italian twist and it all started because I had the meats already in the fridge!

Easy Ingredients and Easy Prep

Chopping salami and prosciutto have their challenges. They are a stickier meat and hard to separate. Fortunately that was the most work I put into this breakfast egg casserole.

I like recipes that I can mix all at once and dump. I don’t always like to think through the prep process – maybe I’m lazy or maybe I’m just hungry! This recipe is as easy as dump, mix, poor and bake.

This recipe made a thin casserole in a 13 x 9 pan. I added some spring onions on top, but those are optional. I just like the extra flavor.

If you plan to bake it for meal prep to be reheated through the week, make sure you don’t overcook as it will dry out if you microwave it later.

Poll: are you a corner person or a middle person? I like the middle of a casserole, but I LOVE the ends of a meatloaf. So I don’t know if there’s one answer!
