Sausage & Egg Breakfast Casserole

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:

Ingredients:
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

Directions:

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. 🙂

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

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

    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.

    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!! 🙂

    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!
