In 2005 when my blog was brand new I visited my step-sister Karyn in California and one morning for breakfast she made this elegant breakfast casserole with artichokes, goat cheese, and Canadian bacon. I wrote down the recipe and it became Karyn’s Holiday Breakfast Casserole with Artichokes, Goat Cheese, and Canadian Bacon. And it’s been hanging out in the archives for all these years with a photo that was not all that appetizing, so I am happy to update the recipe with better photos!

And even though it took me two tries to get photos I was happy with and I didn’t manage to get it done in time to include it with my 20 Favorite Low-Carb Breakfast Casseroles for Mother’s Day Brunch, I think this would be absolutely spectacular for brunch for Mother’s Day (or any holiday where you want a dish that’s a little bit fancy.) If you’re not a goat cheese fan, crumbled Feta will also be good.

This is a breakfast idea that’s fancier and higher in calories than my usual make-on-the-weekend-and-eat-all-week-breakfast-options, which is one reason I’m calling it a holiday breakfast casserole. I prefer dishes like this with less eggs and more other ingredients these days, but if you want a more eggy casserole, feel free to add a few more eggs. I hope you enjoy the recipe if you try it!

I prefer frozen artichoke hearts for this recipe. Quickly drain, cut in half, then put in the colander to drain them well. When they’re drained put the artichoke hearts in the bottom of casserole dish. Chop up the Bacon and layer it over the artichokes.

Put grated cheese over the Canadian bacon. Then cut the cold goat cheese into thin slices and arrange them over the top of the casserole. (Keep the goat cheese in the fridge until you’re ready to slice it!)

Beat the eggs until they’re all combined. Season the casserole as desired and sprinkled sliced green onions over the top. Pour eggs over all, then use a fork to stick down and gently “stir” to make sure all the ingredients get coated with egg. Bake at 375F/190C about 45 minutes, or until the eggs are completely set and the top is starting to slightly brown.

Serve Holiday Breakfast Casserole with Artichokes, Goat Cheese, and Canadian Bacon hot. Some of my recipe testers like this with hot sauce so if you’re a hot sauce fan you might like that too!

Karyn’s Holiday Breakfast Casserole with Artichokes, Goat Cheese, and Canadian Bacon

This elegant breakfast casserole with artichokes, goat cheese, and Canadian bacon would be great for a holiday brunch any time of year.

Ingredients:

  • 12 – 14 eggs
  • 1 pkg (12 oz) frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
  • 8 – 12 oz. Canadian bacon, cut off rind and dice small
  • 4 – 6 oz. crumbled goat cheese
  • 8 oz. grated Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (plus a little more for garnish if desired)
  • Vege-Sal (or salt) and fresh-ground pepper to season eggs
  • 1 tsp. Spike Seasoning (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. dry oregano (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. hot pepper flakes (optional)

Directions:

  1. Put the log of goat cheese into the freezer to chill a few minutes for better cutting.
  2. Thaw artichoke hearts in the fridge overnight and then put them in a colander placed in the sink to quickly drain while you preheat oven to 375F/190C and spray 9 X 13 inch glass casserole dish with nonstick spray.
  3. Then cut artichokes in half and let them drain again. Be sure they are well-drained; blot dry with paper towels if needed. Spread artichokes over bottom of casserole dish.
  4. Cut the rind from the Canadian bacon pieces if desired, then chop and layer that over the artichokes. Add the grated Mozzarella over the Canadian bacon.
  5. Remove goat cheese from the freezer and use a sharp knife to cut thin slices. (It’s easier to cut through the plastic and then peel it off each slice.)
  6. Layer the goat cheese slices over the other ingredients in the casserole dish, sprinkle with sliced green onion, and season with salt (I use Vege-Sal), fresh-ground black pepper, and Spike Seasoning, oregano and red pepper flakes if using.
  7. Put eggs in large bowl or 4-cup glass measuring cup and beat vigorously until completely combined.
  8. Pour egg mixture over other ingredients, then use a fork to poke down and gently stir so that the artichokes, meat, and cheese are all coated with eggs. (If you’re using the smaller amount of egg, it may not seem like it’s enough, but the casserole in the photos was made with 12 eggs.)
  9. Bake about 45 minutes or until eggs are well set and top of the casserole is slightly browned. Serve hot.

  3. Can this casserole be made in a Casserole Crock Slow Cooker? I’ve made several of your recipes in mine and love it.

  4. I can think of a few dads who would love this for a Fathers Day breakfast, too!

  5. Thank you for such a timely answer, Kayln! I'll head to the kitchen right now to get started!

  6. This type of breakfast casserole does reheat very well in the microwave for a minute or two. To reheat the whole casserole, I'd undercook it a little and then heat, covered with foil, in the oven.

  7. I'm about to make the Breakfast Casserole with artichokes and wondering if I can make it a day ahead without any loss of taste or appearance. My family is coming over for brunch tomorrow, and artichokes are the one vegetable everybody likes. I want to make it today but need to know if that's ok.

  8. This is great. I have been eating it every day since it was made!! Very appreciative of your website, pictures, and hints (like using frozen artichokes).

    FortyCloves, I just love goat cheese so anything that includes it is a hit with me.

  13. The combination of flavors sounds incredible, especially the addition of the goat cheese. That always gives things such a nice tang. It looks hearty and, yet, light. Looking forward to trying it!
