This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here

This dairy free egg casserole is a healthy, filling meal that’s perfect for meal prep, holidays, brunch, or entertaining overnight guests. I like to make it on Sunday to have breakfast all ready for the busy week ahead. It’s great served with some fresh fruit, a slice of toast, and some freshly squeezed orange juice.

The Potatoes

My favorite hash browns to use in this dish are the organic seasoned hash browns by Alexia. The seasoning adds a bit more flavor to the dish, but you can always use plain hash browns and season them yourself. I take my hash browns out of the freezer and let them sit out while I’m cooking my bacon and veggies.

The Bacon

Your favorite bacon will work perfect in this dish, so feel free to use what you like. If you’d like to save time, you can also use pre-cooked bacon and skip the cooking time.

Plant-Based Milk or Water

You can use either dairy-free milk or water in this dish, so use what you have on hand. The function of the milk or water in this recipe is to add a bit of moisture so the potatoes don’t bake up dry, but a plant based milk will add a bit of creaminess.

    I have made this 5 times in the last 2 months! We love it I can put cheese on some of it for those who aren’t dairy free. Can it be prepared the night before?

    1. Milk Free Mom Author says:

      I’m so glad you love it! I have not prepared this the night before but you could complete steps 2-4 the night before. I have also made this on Sunday for the week ahead, and it reheats beautifully.

    Daughter’s boyfriend now living with us is lactose intolerant and do to long usage of lactase supplements, they do not seem to be as effective as they once were. Therefore, I try to make recipes without dairy – difficult in a cheese and dairy loving family. I made this recipe with water instead of milk, adding 1/2 diced red pepper, cooked with onions. Also used frozen spinach I had on hand – well drained and dried. Of the 9″ x 13″ casserole dish, there is only 1 small portion left. This recipe is a keeper in our house. Thank you, Milk Free Mom!
