Sausage & Egg Breakfast Casserole Hip2Save

In our home, Christmas morning breakfast casserole is a tradition we all look forward to. It’s such an easy make ahead meal to prep the night before and put in the oven the next morning. Plus I love that this basic recipe can be customized to different meats and veggie combos your family prefers. Italian sausage is what we normally use or breakfast link sausage. Ham or bacon would be yummy as well. The recipe I’m sharing today has a can of roasted mild green chilies and a diced red bell pepper – these are both optional but super delicious. Using French bread makes the casserole really fluffy and delicious.

Sausage & Egg Casserole:

1 pound ground Italian or breakfast sausage
6 slices of French bread sliced, toasted, cut in cubes
5 eggs, beaten
2 cups of milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
1 red bell pepper diced
1 small 4 oz can roasted mild green chilies

Crumble sausage into a medium skillet.  Cook over medium heat until evenly brown; then drain.

Place cubed French bread in a 9×13 pan.

Place cooked sausage over the bread.

Mix eggs, milk, salt, green chilies, and red bell pepper together in a medium sized bowl.

Pour mixture over the bread and sausage. Sprinkle the top with cheese.

Cover and place in fridge over night.

In the morning cook on 350 degrees for 45-60 min covered. Then remove cover and cook another 30 minutes at 325 degrees.

It comes out of the oven looking cheesey, bubbly, and simply amazing! The French bread chunks are my favorite. 🙂
