Print Recipe

Sometimes you want a little something special for breakfast, but French toast and pancakes can be a hassle, slaving away over the stove top to make them fresh for each person's order. This Waffle Bacon Casserole is a treat that'll serve the whole family!

Use frozen waffles to make baking this a breeze. Get layering with bacon after dipping in the egg and milk mixture, then bake it all up for a feast that serves up nicely with syrup and fruit for an easy weekend breakfast.

  • 12-16 frozen waffles
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6-8 slices bacon, sliced into 3 parts
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a casserole dish with nonstick spray or lightly with butter.
  2. Bake waffles on a baking sheet for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy, flipping once if needed, (or cook in the toaster according to package directions).
  3. While the waffles bake, combine the milk, eggs, salt, and vanilla extract.
  4. Once the waffles are done, cut them into quarters and dunk them quickly into the milk mixture.
  5. Start layering the dunked waffles and bacon pieces in your prepared casserole dish, then drizzle with the maple syrup.
  6. Cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil, then bake for 40-50 minutes. Uncover the casserole dish to bake for the last 10-15 minutes uncovered, until the waffles are crispy and golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and spread butter evenly over the top.
  8. Serve with more maple syrup if desired. Enjoy!
