Christmas Eggs

While helping my mother-in-law make these eggs on Christmas eve, I learned this recipe is actually older than Frog Prince!

My mother-in-law got this recipe the Christmas before my little honey was born, and it's been on their Christmas morning table ever since.

Christmas Eggs - Frog Prince's Mom
{Print Recipe}

1 dozen eggs
1/2 C milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4-6 oz. sour cream
1 package bacon
1 C shredded cheddar cheese

Cook, cool and crumble the bacon.

In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt and pepper.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray the skillet, or use a little oil/butter to prevent the eggs from sticking. Cooke the eggs; stirring until eggs are set, but still moist.

Remove from the heat and allow eggs to cool.

When cool, stir in the sour cream.

Spread eggs evenly into a lightly greased 9x13 glass baking dish.

Top with crumbled bacon.


Don't forget the cheese.

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, preheat the oven to 300. Uncover eggs, and bake for 15-20 minutes until hot and cheese is melted.

My family loves this breakfast too!  In fact, when I called them to wish them a Merry Christmas, they had their eggs in the oven baking for their breakfast.  I was touched that they decided to make it even when we were not there.

  1. This seems like a seriously tried and true recipe. Can't go wrong with bacon and eggs though that's for sure. It's a great dish to serve for a large brunch!

  2. YUM! I have had some strange attraction to breakfast foods lately. In the past week alone, I've made 4 different breakfast dishes. It's unusual for us to eat breakfast like that, but we've been enjoying it :)

  3. what's not to love???

  4. This looks so good!

  5. Can't wait to try this--maybe this will become our Christmas breakfast too!

  6. I love having brunch with friends and family and eggs are always a challenge since keeping them warm is a problem - this totally solves it! I cannot wait to try this! Happy New Year!

  7. This sounds so good! With the bacon, I may be able to get my daughter to eat eggs! Thanks for sharing this one.

  8. I just made this, with low fat ingredients and it was still yummy!! Thanks for the recipe!

  9. These were super yummy! I look forward to making them again. Hopefully soon. :>) I linked on my weekly roundup - thanks for sharing!

  10. Looks good! Will have to give these a try.

    Visiting from the blog hop!

  11. What a great story! The casserole looks yummy too!

  12. Ok, I think I'm changing our Christmas morning egg dish! Although I'll make them in individual ramekins, just 'cause I like the look and easy serve. :-)

  13. Just wanted you to know that I made this last year for Christmas breakfast and the family went GAGA over it. It will be our breakfast again this Christmas morning and there after! Thank you!

  14. Is this good left-over? I'm planning on making this on Christmas day, but it will be just for my husband, toddler, and myself. Wasn't sure if this would keep or if I should half the recipe. Thanks!

    1. It does reheat pretty well -- it's best if you either reserve some fresh, crunchy bacon, or if you re-warm the dish in the oven so the bacon can get crunchy again. You can also easily cut the recipe in half.

  15. I've had this bookmarked for a couple of years and FINALLY got to make it today. Everyone loved it! Thanks


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
