What to Serve with a Breakfast Casserole

Do you need some ideas for what to serve with a breakfast casserole? There are so many different things you can choose. I’ve listed some of our favorites below.

Whether you make this casserole with hash browns or one that is more Keto friendly, these dishes are ideal. Even on busy mornings, you can create a breakfast that everyone will love.

2 different types of breakfast casserole

Easy Breakfast Casserole

I enjoy making a delicious casserole for a special breakfast on special occasions, like birthdays, Christmas morning, or even Valentine’s Day. An easy breakfast casserole is special without creating too much work.

This egg and sausage breakfast casserole is one of our favorites. Anyone who is following the Keto diet can eat it all by itself, while other people can add a couple of other foods to their plates.

It’s a savory casserole with a delicious egg mixture, cheddar cheese, and sausage.

Since I go on and off of Keto, I like the fact that it’s a complete meal when I’m dieting. However,  it’s a hearty breakfast casserole that goes with a wide variety of side dishes.

Another one we enjoy is this French toast casserole. I get it ready the night before, and all I have to do is pop it into the oven the next morning. It’s also known as a French toast bake.

This is a make-ahead breakfast casserole that you can start the night before and pop into the oven when you first get up the next day. While it’s baking, go ahead and get ready for the day. Provide maple syrup and another topping such as this blueberry sauce.

We also enjoy this breakfast Tater Tot casserole. There are many different ways you can make it by adding your favorite simple ingredients. I’ve added sour cream, chopped bell pepper, diced tomatoes, and other favorite veggies.

Many breakfast casseroles have a lot of common ingredients. If you have a dozen eggs, some cheese, and a variety of seasonings, you can actually make something that the entire family will love.

15 Perfect Breakfast Casserole Sides

When I cook for just my husband and me, I usually only add one or two side dishes. However, when we have company, I like to offer a wider variety. The best side dishes are the ones you like.

Here are some that we enjoy:

1. Yogurt Parfait

The combination of yogurt and some of your favorite fruits make this a no-brainer. I like to use fresh fruits, but if you can also use canned. Most of the time, we have a big tub of yogurt in the fridge—sometimes plain and other times vanilla. You can also add fruit preserves if you want. However you choose to make it, we think it’s perfect to serve with a breakfast casserole

2. Breakfast Sausage

This homemade breakfast sausage is delicious because you control the ingredients to add. This recipe is for turkey sausage, but you can make pork sausage, or even a blend. Like it spicy? Then add your favorite pepper. It’s an easy recipe to make the way you want.

A little Italian seasoning sprinkled into the mixture delivers a wonderful Italian sausage Regardless of how you like it, savory sausage is so good with any breakfast. For south-of-the border flavor, sprinkle in some chili powder or taco seasoning. You can also add a spoonful of salsa.

3. Crispy Bacon

Is there anything that crispy bacon doesn’t go with? I can’t think of anything. I make it in the air fryer because it’s so quick and easy. And cleanup takes hardly any time at all. You can also cook it in the oven, something I do when I’m serving a larger crowd. I use a large cookie sheet that I cover in foil and then top with parchment paper. That makes for super easy cleanup. Crispy bacon is easy to serve with a breakfast casserole!

4. Cinnamon Rolls

5. Sweet Potato Patties

6. Blueberry Muffins

These delicious blueberry muffins are made from scratch and cooked in an air fryer. They take very little effort or time, yet they are absolutely delicious! If you don’t have an air fryer, these are yummy when you bake them in the oven. Increase the temperature and add a few more minutes. Check out this post to get a more precise time conversion: air fryer times vs. oven.

7. Oatmeal Strawberry Jam Bars

Make a batch of these to enjoy with your breakfast casserole. And make some extras to snack on when you need a little extra energy. If you prefer blueberry, you can substitute it for strawberry. Actually, any flavor of fruit jam works really well for these delicious breakfast bars. Whether you make these to serve with a breakfast casserole, for dessert, or to enjoy as a snack, they’re so yummy!

8. Cinnamon Raisin Granola

This homemade granola is super easy, and it tastes much better than the packaged version from the store. You’ll love how you can control the ingredients so you know exactly what you’re eating. I like eating it the traditional way with milk poured over it. Or you can add it to the fruit-and-yogurt parfait.

9. Cinnamon Applesauce

Pop all of the ingredients into your slow cooker, and a few hours later you’ll have delicious applesauce. It’s easy, and everyone in the family will think you’re brilliant.

10. Basic Chaffle

Anyone who is trying to eat low carb will love having a chaffle. Top it with butter, peanut butter, or your favorite syrup (sugar-free for low-carb folks). I like to make a batch of chaffles and keep them in the fridge or freezer. That way, all I have to do is pop one in the toaster when I want one.

11. Easy Biscuits

These biscuits only have 2 ingredients, and they are absolutely wonderful! They go with any breakfast casserole, but they’re also good with dinner. We also like this strawberry butter. It’s easy to make and adds even more flavor to your yummy chaffle or biscuits!

12. Pumpkin Butter

15. Apple Raisin Oat Bars

Apples, raisins, oats, and a few more ingredients are all you need to make apple raisin oat bars. The first time I made these, I couldn’t believe how delicious they were because they were easy and didn’t take long.

Breakfast food for Dinner

I occasionally cook breakfast food for dinner. It’s delicious, comforting, and filling … so why not? When I do this, I might offer a green salad as a side. Or if I’m making the Keto casserole, I might offer Tater Tots for those who aren’t concerned about carbs.

The great thing about any easy breakfast casserole is that you have a variety of options. Whether you’re sitting down at the table with just your family or overnight guests, it’s another opportunity to share delicious food and lively conversation.
