Mexican Lasagna Breakfast Casserole

Mexican Lasagna Breakfast Casserole is a simple recipe that is bursting with flavor. With layer upon layer of delicious Mexican flavors, corn tortillas, bacon and ooey gooey cheese all wrapped up in a scrumptious breakfast casserole. This is my favorite breakfast and I can't get enough!

We are so excited to be partnering with our friends at Jones Dairy Farm to bring you a scrumptious breakfast or brunch recipe perfect for the holidays with family and friends, starring one of my favorite ingredients: Bacon!!!

A few months ago my family headed to California for vacation. We stayed at one of our favorite theme park hotels and of course, we made sure to catch breakfast at the hotel restaurant while we were there. All I could think about was this delicious chilaquiles breakfast that they had at the buffet. I had enjoyed it the last time we vacationed there and my mouth still waters every time I think about it. It is made with tortilla chips, scrambled eggs, salsa and cheese. I swear I must have gone back for 3rds it was soooo good.

When I got home I had that breakfast on my mind and knew I had to create a breakfast with those same flavors that can be made ahead. I mean we have talked extensively about the fact that I am not a morning person. I get up when it is still morning but I am not motivated to start cooking straight out of bed. So, make-ahead casseroles and breakfasts like these are my saving grace.


They make mornings so much more enjoyable and stress-free is right up my alley.That is one of the many reasons I absolutely love love love make ahead breakfasts! Layers of corn tortillas, fresh pico de gallo, Cherrywood Smoked Sliced Bacon, 2 delicious kinds of ooey gooey cheese (pepper jack and cheddar)  and Mexican seasoned eggs all come together to create my new favorite breakfast. A make ahead breakfast with ooey gooey cheese and bacon; it doesn't get much better than that!

I have made this casserole again and again. Anytime it is in the house, I have eaten for every meal of the day. So, I can attest to the fact that it makes an amazing breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I have also made this with Jones Dairy Farm Sausage Rolls and it is amazing either way. It is national egg month and I can not think of a better way to celebrate than with this breakfast casserole.

  1. That looks really good. Might have to try that some weekend.

  2. This was delicious! I was wondering if you have ever tried it with flour tortillas and if you have ever assembled it the night before and baked it in the morning?

    1. The recipe says it can be made the night before. There's no reason you couldn't use flour tortillas though they will probably be very soft like when you make mexican chicken casserole.
