Sausage and Egg Casserole
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 40 min.
My family loved this dish!!! I used Jimmy Dean sausage bits prepackaged and diced ham to save time, I cubed 5 slices of 3-cheese artisan bread, used 12 eggs, 1.5 cups milk, 2 cups Mexican cheese blend and added onion powder, garlic powder and salt & pepper. Scrumptious!! I was worried it’d be dry but it was perfectly moist.
I think this dish really depends on quality of sausage used. (The better the flavor of sausage, the better the end result.) For us, this dish comes out perefect everytime....it's a great, easy to follow recipe. Love that you can make the night before and save on prep time (which is aces for a morning event), but I have also made without letting it set overnight and still comes out wonderful.
Very tasty. I added dried minced onion
Now that we are currently sheltering in place, I've been managing the pantry fridge and freezer contents with greater attention. I found myself with three dozen eggs, six Jimmy Dean turkey sausages and a half pound of chorizo. I decided to make this casserole, but had no white bread. Way back in the freezer I found three slices of prepared garlic bread (the kind that is buttered and seasoned). So that's the bread I substituted in the recipe. After cooking the chorizo and using a paper towel to sop up the grease, I added the sliced turkey sausage to mix in with the chorizo. I added the sausage to the egg mixture, which I made with only one cup of milk based on the remarks of other reviewers, and the diced garlic bread. We're not cheese lovers, so I left out the cheese, which cuts a lot of calories out too. The chorizo and garlic bread made for a very flavorful and delicious dish.
I have made this also using sliced deli ham and adding mushrooms. Makes a delicious holiday brunch. I also serve with a side of home fries and fresh in season fruit.
This is delicious and easy to make. We used Lactose-Free 2% Milk, Jimmy Dean sage sausage, and chopped onion (cooked with the sausage...maybe half a cup or more). Perhaps some chopped/diced parsley on top when you serve it. I was surprised how tasty this was.
It’s so good! You can use any sausage or bacon. We used ham the other day from a leftover spiral cut ham! A good idea for lever ham from Easter ??! We’ve used leftover bagels as the bread and I’ve even added Potatoes O'Brien. I only use a little over a cup of milk though. *I’m wondering if you can freeze half of it after you bake it. It made a lot. I know I could half the recipe but needed to get rid of the milk and bread before it went bad.
I make "breakfast bake" very often for my children when they are home and for guests. I brown the sausage with diced onions, red and green peppers. I use 10 slices of bread with crusts removed, 10 eggs, only 1 1/2 cups of milk and 2 cups sharp shredded cheddar. I have always layered it the night before (bread, meat, cheese, egg mixture) so I can just pop in the oven in the morning. So yummy!
I’ve tried alot of breakfast Casseroles in the last few weeks. This is the best of them all. It was scrumptious. I used hot sausage and diced onions in it. It’s easy and fast. You can actually bake this recipe right away. It’s flexible also. Adding different meat, canned chili peppers, cream instead of milk makes it yummy. ( by the way the mustard is an essential element for taste and it does not cause it to taste like mustard at all) enjoy!
This was easy to assemble and turned out Great! I gave it a 4.5 since I decided to add seasoning salt, parsley, and diced onion for some extra flavor my family enjoys.
