Kitchen Tools You Need
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. 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.

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.
