"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.


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


  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 chiles. 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 in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
