FF Cooking Club- My Mom’s Holiday Egg and Cheese Casserole Dish!

Hi everyone!  For all those who have been following Forever Freckled, you know our family goes ALL OUT for the holidays.  We also do not discriminate, and celebrate all of the holidays!  We never pass up an opportunity to get the family together, laugh, eat, create memories, and enjoy each other’s company.  So I am excited to share this recipe with everyone today. My mom has been making this for us for years, traditionally on Christmas morning, and her mother (my Nonnie) passed it down to her .  I love this recipe.  It is easy, you can prepare it ahead of time, and it’s not just great for the holidays, but also for brunch and for any family breakfast.  Happy cooking!


12 eggs



Onion powder

1/2 cup milk

Small can of chopped chiles (optional)

3 tablespoons of melted butter

Individual slices of Original Velveeta cheese (the thicker ones)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk the eggs with the milk.

Add the spices and chiles.


Spread the melted butter on the bottom of the pyrex dish.

Layer on the cheese (make sure to use thick slices).


Pour the egg mixture on the top of the cheese.


Place in over at 350 degrees fahrenheit for about 40 minutes.

The eggs will rise, get bubbly, and the top should  brown.

Serve hot.



The great thing about this recipe is it’s so versatile. You can add whatever you want into the eggs (onions, bacon bits, pancetta, all types cheeses, etc).  Get creative and make the dish your own!  This is my Nonnie’s original recipe from her recipe box (I am honored to have many of them).  I LOVE making my Nonnie and mom’s recipes. I feel like it takes you back in time and you get to relive what they were doing back then.  Note the cursive writing on these cards.  Do you believe they no longer teach cursive in schools?  Our kids will never write in cursive.  It’s so important to pass on traditions and remember our loved ones. Happy cooking everyone and hug your family and friends extra tight!
