sausage and egg breakfast casserole – served on a plate

Looking for a delicious breakfast recipe?

In our home, this sausage and egg breakfast casserole is one of our favorites. 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 (or breakfast link sausage) is what we normally use. Ham or bacon would be yummy as well.

The recipe I’m sharing today uses a can of roasted mild green chilies and a diced red bell pepper. These are both optional, yet super delicious. Using French bread makes the casserole really fluffy and yummy. I love how easy this process is!

Such delicious taste and texture!

This casserole comes out of the oven looking cheesy, bubbly, and simply amazing! The French bread chunks are my favorite.

    I need to try this! Delish!

  7. julie

    I just made something similar to this today but instead of bread I used cooked hashbrowns. Can’t wait to eat it tomorrow!

  8. Sarah

    Ahh…I’ve had this for Christmas breakfast every Christmas I can remember! My mom uses stale bread – sounds gross but it’s delicious!

  9. C

    Thanks for the recipe. Just got done making this… It’s in the fridge all ready for tomorrow! Merry Christmas to all! 🙂

    You can use toast if you don’t have French bread. I toast the heels of a loaf of bread since no one eats those pieces anyway. We like add cilantro and some chili flakes for a little heat.

  11. Tiara

    We make this (minus the chili’s and we use any bread cut in cubes and dried or toasted) every Christmas 🙂 sometimes with fruit salad or cinnamon rolls, too. My husband’s Grandmother started the Christmas tradition and we carried it along.

    I made something almost identical this morning, only instead of using the french bread my recipe called for country style hash browns. Turned out delicious and was super filling!! 🙂

    • Melissa J

      Hi! I love the idea of using hash browns instead of bread. Can you add frozen hash browns? Do you remember the amount you used? TIA!

      • jax

        I make mine with hashbrowns but the simply potato bagged ones. I usually toss them with melted butter, salt and pepper before putting in the casserole. If you use frozen I’d defrost and remove some of the water from them.

        • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          Yum! Great idea 💡

        • Melissa J

          Perfect, thank you!!

  13. Krissy

    Read this last minute decided to take a chance: used everything except chilies and added an egg and extra bread (french) with maple sausage- was simply amazing! Never had it before, was inexpensive and very filling! Thank you!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Excellent!

  14. Cami

    Does anyone know how to like a deal? Before the update you were able to ❤️ a post and it would save. I’m kinda upset cause all the ones I saved before update are gone 🙁 I had recipe posts saved, DIY stuff, and items I really liked that I eventually wanted to buy and now it’s all gone! I can’t even save anything else! I truly hope they bring that feature back to Hip2Save

    • Brittany

      Yes!! I would like to know this too!!

  15. Jamie

    We do leftover sausage stuffing and scrambled eggs sautéed in a pan for breakfast – I should try it baked this way. Would be way better!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum! Great idea 💡

  16. Sfter

    I make this every year. My nephew calls it Egg cake. Lol. I have to make triple batch bc everyone LOVES it. It’s super easy and so good!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! So yum

  17. Amy

    Only 5 eggs? Doesn’t seem like near enough for a big pan…isn’t it more bread than egg? Does anyone add more eggs?

    • Toni

      My recipe calls for 6 eggsand a few more pieces of bread. The 2 cups of milk that you add makes for plenty of liquid for the bread to absorb. We used any kind of breakfast meat (ham cubes, bacon, sausage), onions, and green peppers. Yum!

  18. Kandyce

    I still have alot of these ingredients leftover from thanksgiving day prep. Definitely will try this recipe 😊🌶🥕🍅🧀

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Perfect! Thanks for sharing 👍

  19. Ihearthip

    I do a similar casserole for Christmas and I like to top it with green onions and cherry tomatoes at the end.
