  • 12 Large eggs
  • 1/3 cup Breakstone's or Knudsen Sour Cream
  • 12 ounces VELVEETA® Pasteurized Prepared Cheese product, sliced


  1. Heat oven to 350ºF

  3. Spread vegetable mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Whisk eggs and sour cream until blended; pour over vegetable mixture. Top with bacon and VELVEETA®.
  4. Bake 40 min. or until center is set and casserole is heated through.


  • Keeping it Safe: Always serve egg-based dishes immediately after cooking to prevent bacterial growth. Be sure to cook until the eggs are completely set. Avoid recipes which call for partially cooked or raw eggs. 

    Make Ahead: Casserole can be assembled ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours before baking as directed, increasing baking time if needed until casserole is done.
