    Domino's Crispy Bacon & Tomato Specialty Chicken

    I imagine a chef at Domino's in the middle of the development kitchen, surrounded by all the toppings they use on pizza, experimenting with new combinations of these ingredients, trying to come up with something delicious that isn't pizza. And then this dish happens: crispy chicken topped with garlic-Parmesan sauce, Cheddar-mozzarella cheese, bacon, tomato, and baked until gooey.

    Now, you can make your own appetizer masterpiece, and to make it easy you'll start with crispy chicken strips or popcorn chicken from the freezer section.

    All the assembly instructions are here including an original, and simple, hack for the garlic-Parmesan sauce that gets drizzled over the chicken before adding all the other good stuff.

    Build your dish on a strip of parchment paper, just like the restaurant does, and bake it until the cheese is bubbly. Now you have a cool new thing to make with frozen crispy chicken strips.

    Egg Casserole with Canadian Bacon

    You could scramble up some eggs with Canadian bacon and mushrooms for breakfast. Or, you could do that same thing and then tuck the mixture into a creamy, cheesy sauce and bake it up under a blanket of crispy buttery cracker crumbs. I don’t know about you, but I think I’ll go with the latter. It may be a little more work than a quick scramble but I can promise you that this Egg Casserole is worth it every time. Every bite is irresistibly soft and creamy with a little bonus cracker crunch.

    This casserole is really like a classic breakfast scramble… just extra. But you start the same way. You scramble up a bunch of eggs (seven whole eggs plus five more whites) with some Canadian bacon, mushrooms, and green onion.

    The extra part is that you also make a quick bechamel that you fold plenty of cheddar cheese into and the scramble gets folded into that.

    That gets topped with the aforementioned buttery cracker crumbs and everything bakes until the egg mixture is hot and bubbly and the cracker crumbs are crisp and golden brown.

    It’s a delightfully soft casserole – creamy, cheesy eggs punctuated by savory ham and earthy mushrooms – but the cracker topping keeps it from being too one-note in texture. While it’s a little more time-intensive than a basic scramble, it’s not at all laborious and when it means you’ll be biting into the creamiest eggs you’ll ever have, those few extra minutes are well worth it.

    Potatoes make a good side dish, but they&rsquore even better when cheese and bacon are added! We enjoy this potato casserole along with a nice piece of meat or sandwich for a family meal.

    Making a pound of bacon, chopping it up and mixing it in the cheesy potatoes as well as sprinkling bacon on top really enhances this recipe to create the best bacon and potato casserole.

    This recipe is one that our family created. It began with these classic Farmhouse Cheesy Potatoes that are served at countless family meals throughout the year. Then we adapted the recipe to create a one dish meal, Smoked Sausage and Cheesy Potato Casserole.

    Adding smoked sausage has been super popular on Pinterest so we knew adding bacon was the next variation to try! Our family is a meat and potatoes family and this recipe is another one that we love.

    Variations of Bacon and Potato Casserole

    We tested this basic bacon and potato casserole with 1/2 cup chopped onions that were sauteed in the bacon grease and 1/3 cup chopped green peppers, which certainly adds crunch and more southwest flavors.

    Our palates unanimously preferred a more basic and mellow potato, bacon and cheese casserole.

    Cornflakes or 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs can be sprinkled on top in place of Ritz or butter crackers. Again, we love the rich butter flavors from the crackers. For a potato casserole that tastes great with cornflakes try our Red Potato Ranch Casserole.

    We also have a bacon and egg casserole which is our Bacon Breakfast Casserole. This dish is super hearty with bread cubes and someday we&rsquore going to test using hashbrowns in place of the bread cubes.

    Tips & Tricks to Make This Casserole:

    • We prefer frying or baking bacon as opposed to using pre-cooked bacon bits for this recipe.
    • If adding onions saute chopped onions in a couple tablespoons of bacon grease before stirring into the casserole.
    • 1/4 to 1/3 cup of chopped bell peppers and or mushrooms can be added to casserole if desired.
    • I have a large mixing bowl that doesn&rsquot quite hold all of the ingredients for this recipe. So the recipe may need mixed in two batches or an extra-large mixing bowl.
    • Allowing frozen hashbrowns to sit on the counter for 30 minutes to knock off the chill can make mixing easier.
    • Take care to finely crush crackers to optimize flavors in every bite!

    What&rsquos Needed to Make Cheesy Potato Casserole with Bacon

    • Frozen shredded hash browns
    • Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    • Bacon
    • Sour cream
    • Cream of mushroom soup
    • Pepper
    • Ritz crackers or a store brand of butter crackers
    • Butter

    How to Make Cheesy Bacon Potato Casserole

    Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a 9×13 inch baking dish with a light coat on non-stick spray.

    Using a big or extra large mixing bowl mix hash browns, cream of mushroom soup and sour cream together.

    Sprinkle pepper over the top, add 2 cups of shredded cheese and 3/4 pound of chopped bacon. Mix well.

    Spread into baking dish and top with remaining shredded cheese.

    Place butter crackers in a plastic bag and finely crush. Mix together with melted butter and sprinkle over top of potato casserole.

    Take the rest of that beautiful bacon that you&rsquove been tempted to snack on the entire time and sprinkle it over top of the casserole.

    Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. Check around 30 minutes and if the bacon starts to brown cover with foil and continue baking until the cheese is all melted and bubbling around the edges.

    A digital meat thermometer can be used to check that the center of the casserole has been reached 145°F if desired.


    Considering most broccoli casserole dishes are put together using some flavor of condensed soup, this broccoli cheese casserole is different because the sauce is actually made using cream cheese.. garlic and herb flavored cream cheese, to be more specific.

    This low-carb broccoli casserole recipe was inspired by the original recipe by Kraft (check it out HERE) but I thought a kick of garlic and herb would really take this broccoli cheese casserole recipe to the next level.

    Arkansas: Parmesan Shrimp and Rice Casserole

    Arkansas produced more rice than any other state, so rice casseroles are ubiquitous. This shrimp and rice casserole recipe is from the 2017 Miss Arkansas Rice, Shelby Bosnick, and helped her win her title. It includes colorful bell peppers, lots of okra and white wine, soy sauce and parmesan for an abundance of flavor.

    • Cook your pasta: I like to cook the pasta as directed then let the pasta sit in the water an additional 10 minutes to soak more liquid. This prevents it from soaking up too much of your cheese sauce.
    • Prep work: Shred the cheese and cook and crumble your bacon.
    • Make your Sauce: With some bacon fat still in the pan, add the flour, mustard, cayenne and paprika and whisk together then slowly add in the milk.
    • Adding Eggs: To add your eggs without cooking them keep 1 cup of the sauce in the fridge for 10 minutes then whisk the eggs into the cooled sauce before adding it back to the pot.
    • Combine everything: Mix the pasta, sauce and shredded cheese with half of the bacon, then pour into the baking dish.
    • Bake Time: Bake for 30 minutes, uncovered and in the last 10 minutes top it with the remaining bacon.


    • Pepperoni Mac: Pepperoni and bacon taste amazing together. Add some mini pepperoni slices to your mac and cheese and top with mozzarella cheese for a pizza spin.
    • Toppings: Give your Baked Mac and cheese more crunch by sprinkling the top with breadcrumbs, mixed with seasonings and butter, during the last 5-10 minutes of baking.
    • Bacon Ranch: Make this into mouthwatering Chicken Bacon Ranch Mac and Cheese recipe. Take 2 cups of shredded chicken and 2 tablespoons dry Ranch Dressing Mix and combine in skillet. Add chicken mixture to your pasta before baking.
    • Pasta: Switch up your pasta by using another small noodle that has curves or hollow centers perfect for catching more of that delicious cheese sauce. We like to use cavatappi, fusilli, or small shells.


    To make this dish ahead of time, follow recipe until it is time to add to oven. You can store in the freezer, covered in foil for up to 3 months, and in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat from frozen, thaw in the fridge overnight and bake as usual.

    6. BBQ Chicken

    Aside from the usual fried option, BBQ chicken is also a great way to add some protein into your mac and cheese. The BBQ sauce pairs perfectly with the cheesy pasta.

    Cut your chicken into smaller pieces. Add them on top of your mac and cheese and you&rsquove got the perfect one-bowl meal!

    For an extra pop of flavor, drizzle some additional BBQ sauce on top!

    Mashed Potato Casserole

    Among the accompaniments that you need at your Thanksgiving table are mashed potatoes, the ultimate comfort food. However, if you are looking to diversify this classic side dish, this casserole recipe is for you.

    The recipe combines mashed potatoes with fennel, a wonderful addition, which brings a subtle licorice and anise like, flavor to the casserole- so fitting for an autumn feast. Gruyere cheese, and bacon along with a topping of crushed pretzels complete this amazing dish.

    If you are in a time crunch, you can always prepare the potatoes ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator. Reserve topping them with the pretzel crumbs, for just before you are ready to bake them and increase the baking time by an extra 10-15 min.

    Feel free to tailor the recipe according to your taste, by substituting or taking away some of the ingredients listed here- the possibilities are endless. Do not plan on leftovers- this casserole is so delicious - everyone will come back for seconds! Enjoy!

    Easy Crouton Breakfast Casserole Recipe

    Here is one of our favorite breakfast casserole recipes. We love to make this for Christmas breakfast, but you could make this any time you want a yummy, easy to throw together casserole. We love that you can make it ahead so all you have to do is pop it into the oven in the morning.

    This casserole is not only super easy to make, but has a great flavor. The toasted croutons make a perfect substance that isn’t mushy like strata or crunch like topping. YUMMY!

    • 6 eggs
    • 2 cups half and half (it makes it richer than milk)
    • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
    • 1/2 teas salt

    If you’d like you can add 3/4 cup cooked bacon, ham, or sausage.

    Stir and pour into 9吉 pan.

    Sprinkle 2 cups of grated cheddar cheese on the top of your casserole.

    I sprinkled with chopped, sweet red peppers and sliced green onions. It’s optional, but it not only added some healthy veggies, but also made it very festive for Christmas breakfast.

    Cover and put in the fridge overnight. It can be made up to 3 days ahead of time.

    On Christmas morning just pull the casserole out of the fridge and allow the pan to come to room temperature while the oven preheats to 325 F. (During this time we whip up a batch of our favorite Christmas drink – Wassail).

    Cover and bake 45 minutes. (This is the perfect amount of time to unwrap presents! The casserole is ready just as we finish opening everything up. After breakfast it’s time to PLAY!)

    NOTE: The picture shows the time I accidentally cooked the casserole uncovered so it got a little more brown on the top and edges than we like. But I loved the Christmas plates….. so that’s the one I choose =)
