Family Recipes: Velveeta Cheese Breakfast Casserole


When I make a family recipe like this Velveeta Cheese Breakfast Casserole that is suppose to be packed full of ooey gooey cheese there is only one product out there that will fit the bill and it is Velveeta Cheese.

A block of cheddar or a bag of shredded cheese, regardless of the brand will not melt the way Velveeta does. Velveeta Cheese is  like liquid gold. It is the only cheese that will melt smooth and sometimes run down your chin if you’re not careful. I was lucky this time with my breakfast casserole recipe. I was careful to keep the Velveeta Cheese from running down my chin but I plead the 5th as far as my shirt is concerned.

Velveeta Breakfast Casserole Recipe

I can remember the excitement  when I was a child and my mother brought home a big block of Velveeta Cheese from the grocery store.  If she had bought it for a recipe she planned to make she would have to hide it because us kids would get into it and cut a big hunk off of it and eat it.  Even as an adult I do the same thing. As soon as I got home from shopping at Walmart the other day I opened the package of Velveeta and sliced off a thick slice and ate it as I was putting away the rest of my purchases. Can you blame me?

Please tell me I am not the only one that does this!

This cheesy breakfast casserole recipe make a 9 x13 baking dish and will feed a large family. It would also be great for a holiday breakfast or brunch. If you have a smaller family then you can divide the recipe in half and make a 8×8 baking pan. you’ll have to trim the hash brown patties to fit the bottom of the smaller pan. 12 hash brown patties fit the bottom of the 9×13 inch baking dish perfectly.

This Velveeta Cheesy Breakfast Casserole recipe can be found at the bottom of this post in the Ziplist format.

      You could mix the egg mixture together and even bake the hash browns the night before but I would wait until the morning before baking to pour the egg and Velveeta mixture over the hash browns otherwise the hash browns may absorb the eggs and it probably wouldn’t turn out exactly the same as my recipe did. If you look at my picture with the fork you can see that the hash brown patties are a separate layer on the bottom.

    I too love a slice of Velveeta, but I also put Miracle Whip on it , that goes way back, I wonder if anyone uses that anymore. Great recipe easy and quick .
    Thank you so much for sharing it on our BBQ Block Party.

    I love Velveeta cheese…and frozen hash browns…shhhhh! I know, very uncool and ungourmet! But at least I admit I am not a food snob! Thanks for the recipe, I’m going to make it for July 4th week at the beach, thanks!

  5. says

    Oh wow! That looks really good! Velveeta was a staple of my childhood too! At least once a week we had grilled cheese (Velveeta) sandwiches with (Campbells) tomato soup!

    I have a bunch of family coming to stay with us next month. This will be perfect to serve them for breakfast. Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday.

  7. Sherry Entwistle says

    Is this Velveeta casserole one of the ones that can be made the night before and refrigerated? Sounds yummy!

  8. Christina says

    I have a question. Why hash brown patties instead of just the frozen hash browns? This looks delicious but I was wondering if you have ever tried it like that and if it would work?

    • says


      I used the patties because I wanted a layer of potatoes on the bottom. Yes I have made a very similar breakfast casserole with the country style hash browns. With this recipe the cooked hash brown patties stays in a separate layer on the bottom instead of being mixed in with the egg and cheese mixture.

  9. Steven Kleber says

    I just have to say that this recipe is amazing! It takes all the best parts of breakfast and combines it into one glob of ooey gooey goodness! I used a homemade sweet hot sauce and substituted the original velveeta cheese with the Mexican VelVeeta and added a little chili powder for some kick.. Amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

      I’m thrilled that you loved the recipe and added some kick to it with the changes. The little ones here don’t like spicy but I would love it the way you made it. Have a great weekend!
