Southwest Brunch Casserole Recipe

Southwest Brunch Casserole Recipe

"My husband used to take this casserole, doubled, to office potlucks, and it was a favorite. I serve it at home as a special-occasion breakfast or even dinner for the two of us. Any leftovers taste just as good, reheated in the microwave," says Linda Hinkley of Florence, Oregon.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 2 English muffins, split
  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup canned chopped green chilies

Directions

  • 1. Spread butter over cut sides of each muffin half. Place buttered side up in an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray; set aside.
  • 2. In a small skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Spoon sausage over muffin halves. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and sour cream; pour over sausage. Sprinkle with cheese and chilies. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
  • 3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 4 servings.

"Does anyone know if this recipe can just be assembled and then baked right away without refrigerating overnight? I'd appreciate any feedback, Thanks! I'm adding rating stars since it sounds good and is easy to make and I can't submit a question without a rating."

"Very good recipe! I made with spicy sausage and added pickled jalapenos as someone suggested. Everyone loved it. I also doubled this and served from a 9x13 dish."

"Very easy and a great way to salvage English muffins that are a little past their prime freshness-wise!"

"We like the recipe as is, but next time I'm going to add onion and mushroom(fresh never caned) when cooking the sausage then drain well on on paper towels pat dry. Then spoon mixture over muffin and add more cheese like pepper jack YUMMMMMMM!"

"This was really good and HEARTY! Maybe I will try with cooked sausage patty next time as it will fit perfectly on the English muffin. But, there's not a thing wrong with this recipe! Thanks!"

"My family likes to eat breakfast foods for dinner sometimes. Knowing that I was not going to be home last evening, and it would just be my daughter and husband, I thought I would give this recipe a try. My husband said it was so good, he ate the entire casserole himself! I couldn't find green chilies anywhere in our grocery store, so I substituted diced jalepenos for them. Guess it worked!"

"This was very good. I like these prepare ahead recipes that I can just pop in the oven the next morning. I will more than likely make it at least once a month. I used the turkey breakfast sausage rather than pork. Leftovers also warm up well."

"I'm keeping this recipe. Southwest? I don't think the name fits really...it was hardly a Southwest dish. Anyway... it got 5 stars because it was easy and my husband liked it. What I'm going to like even more is how I can change it up. I can see now this recipe can be modified to meet any taste I'm in the mood for. I like the idea of adding some onions, green peppers, etc."
