Savory Breakfast Bundt Cake

Have you ever thought of making a breakfast cake?  No, not the coffee cake type, but a savory breakfast bundt cake.  You are going to love this breakfast casserole. Full of flavor, filling and delicious, this is a must-try savory breakfast cake.

We spotted this idea from Melody Cooks. The site is no longer around so there wasn’t a recipe, so we made our own version. We ended up loving it and it’s so simple to make!

Savory Breakfast Bundt Cake

I love breakfast casseroles.  They make breakfast so much easier to serve.  Everything in one simple dish is a perfect way to enjoy your favorite breakfast foods, conveniently.

I especially love a savory breakfast cake that is easy to make and tastes even better. This is one of those cakes! I know my kids absolutely love this breakfast.  What’s not to love about serving cake for breakfast?  Making it a savory breakfast is tons of fun!

Do I have to use a bundt pan for this breakfast casserole recipe?

This breakfast casserole is made in a bundt pan but if you wanted to use a casserole dish you certainly could. The most important thing to consider when you are making this casserole recipe in another style of pan is that the cooking time changes depending on the pan. Just be sure to check the casserole to make sure it isn’t getting overdone or is done enough.

Is this a good make-ahead breakfast casserole?

I love it when I can make breakfast ahead. It saves me time in the mornings but also gives my family a warm meal to start their day. All you have to do is prepare as directed right up to the time you pop it into the oven.  Instead of baking, wrap it well and refrigerate until time to cook the following day.

You can also bake this completely, allow it to cool, then wrap individual servings and reheat them as needed in the microwave.  I prefer heating in 30-second increments until it is fully heated, so I don’t overcook it in the microwave.

Can I make this for a Christmas morning breakfast?

This is a great Christmas morning breakfast. Because you can make this breakfast ahead, you can combine everything the night before and then bake it in the morning when you are ready. This makes it a simple Christmas breakfast that lets you have a great tasting savory breakfast without keeping you away from the family.

Ingredients for savory breakfast casserole

  • Ham
  • baby spinach
  • garlic
  • cayenne
  • cumin
  • frozen shredded hash browns
  • sweet Hawaiian bread

How to make a savory breakfast cake

Gather your ingredients and begin by preheating your oven and preparing your bundt pan with non-stick spray.

Once you have everything on hand, you’ll saute your spinach and garlic to soften before mixing in the hash browns and cooking until slightly browned.  You will let everything cool before you begin layering the bread, ham, vegetables, and cheese into the bundt pan before baking.

Versatile Breakfast Bundt5 stars

Sounds delicious  .Do you have a printbutton?5 stars

Hi Ann, YES! There is a print button inside the recipe box.

savory breakfast bundt awesome- so glad to have found your family friendly site!5 stars

Do I let it cool completely before flipping over?5 stars

You want to serve it warm,

This is a great way to feed a crowd,even after a game of cards or dominos. Not heavy. For breakfast I will make a nice gravy for an option and fresh fruit.5 stars

Great recipe, but in my families opinion, the Hawaiian bread makes it a little bit too sweet. We decided to try the recipe with French bread instead, and it was absolutely delicious, so if you dont like the sweetness from Hawaiian bread, try different types of bread!5 stars

Delicious! I baked it in a 9 x 13. Took about 35 minutes. I just checked it often at the end. Left out some spices. Added some peppers. Great recipe. Thanks!5 stars

I thought about putting it in 2 loaf pans, slicing 2 pieces per serving.

A favorite of my family5 stars

Bundt pans come in 9 cup, 10 cup and 12 cup. It would be important to list what size bundt pan to use here.

Do I have to use cream as I never have cream on hand.

Family hates spiniach can I use this so they don’t notice it or use onion salt? My son hates onions or can I make they very fine. Fussy family but not me!!!!!!

Hello i made this recipe today! It was very savory, and delious. I will continue to make this. Thank you for sharing.

I must be really slow than because I started prepping at 8 am and here it is 936 now and it’s JUST about to go into the oven. 
40 minutes from than, I can’t wait to try it!

Glad you think you are slow. I must be too! I’d like to know if anyone made this the night before – leaving in the refrigerator after pouring the egg mixture on and leaving it overnight. I prepared it without pouring the egg mixture and will do this in the morning while waiting for the oven to preheat. I’ll let you know how it works doing this step ahead.

Just wondered?? Did the “pouring the egg mixture in the morning” work? TIA

Could this be air fried in a smaller 9″round pan? if so what would the time and temp be?5 stars

Thank you so much! I’ll make and take to my elderly parents so they can have a few hots meals throughout the week. This recipe serves a very real need and I am grateful.5 stars

Loved it. 5 stars

My Mother inlaw always made these they are wonderful when u have company5 stars

Great recipe! I’ve made this 3 or 4 times and I don’t precook anything. I just layer all of the ingredients then the milk and bake and its great every time. I’ve even made it the night before, took it out so it was room temp and baked it too! Awesome! Thank you for the recipe!5 stars

Has anyone made this a week before and froze it? Maybe defrost the day before … then baking it the next morning? Maybe that’s too much to ask! Just wondering.

I think I’m going to try this but as cup cakes

What is sweet Hawaiian bread? I’ve never heard of it. I live in Ontario, Canada.
