Breakfast Egg Bake
Kitchen Tools You Need
- Baking Pan
- Mixing Bowl
- Serrated knife to cut the bread
Breakfast Egg Bake
Grease a 9 by 13-inch pan. Cut the Hawaiian rolls into cubes and place them in the baking dish.
Grab a bowl and whisk the eggs, milk, Worcestershire sauce, and dry mustard until smooth. Today I used a blender. Add the meat of choice and the Mozzarella cheese to the milk mixture.
Pour this mixture over the cut pieces of the Hawaiian rolls in the casserole pan and thoroughly cover the bread and spread the mixture evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Remove the plastic wrap and bake uncovered for 50-60 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Enjoy!
Please use a thermometer to test for doneness. Please note that 160 degrees is the temperature you want for safe consumption.

Please use a thermometer to test for doneness, it should register 160 degrees.
Can I use a different bread?
Absolutely, I have used my white bread, my whole wheat bread, and even croissants. This recipe is so easy to change out to different pieces of bread.
What temperature is recommended for an egg bake to be safe to eat?
When I was growing up we used the knife trick, then I taught classes at a kitchen store. I soon learned that I needed a thermometer to test most baked items. Well, the egg bake should measure 160 degrees to be safe for consumption.
How long can I store this breakfast casserole in the frig?
After baking, you can store the leftovers in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Can I freeze the leftovers?
Yes, you can. Place the leftovers in serving size airtight containers and freeze them for up to two months. When you are ready to bake them, thaw in the frig the night before. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until heated through.
What can I serve with this casserole?
- Fresh fruit
- Orange juice
- Coffee or tea
- Hot Chocolate
Will a different cheese work?
Yes, you can. If I have Mozzarella, I use that. But I have used half Mozzarella and half cheddar. You can even use just straight cheddar cheese, this recipe is so flexible.
Can I make this recipe vegetarian?
You don’t have to add meat to this recipe. You can add more vegetables if you like.
What other vegetables can I add to this recipe?
You can add chopped onions, chopped broccoli, and sliced mushrooms, the sky is the limit.
I hope you try making my Overnight Hawaiian Bread Egg Bake, it’s so yummy! My goal is to teach others how easy it is to cook from scratch. Our meals will be healthier and a whole lot cheaper.
Please stay well, and stay safe. May God bless this world, Linda

Sounds really good. Another “bread/egg” bake that I have used in the past was French Toast Bake – cannot recall where I got the recipe but it is very similar as you assemble it the night before! You cut up bread as you have done (I used French bread but Hawaiian rolls would work as well). Place in a well greased baking pan. Add chunks of cream cheese, drizzle with maple syrup. Beat enough eggs and cream to cover. Wrap or cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, bake at 350F for 50-60 minutes. To serve, cut in squares and drizzle with maple syrup or other syrups as you like.
Hi Leanne, now my mouth is watering! French bread, cream cheese, cream, and maple syrup! I love breakfast casseroles! Thanks for the recipe! Linda
Good Morning! I have a quick (yes, quick) question. What do you do with leftovers? Can it be frozen or just put in frig? I’m only one person. Ok, two if you count my dog!
Hi Pam, yes you can put it in the frig and use it up within 3-4 days. Yes, you can freeze it in airtight containers and freeze up to 2 months. Thaw the container in the frig the night before and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until heated through. I’m so glad you asked. I’m going to go add it to the post. Thank you so much, Linda
