Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Please Share Y'all!

Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole, or Christmas Casserole as it’s known at our house, is and easy to prepare recipe. You’ve been busy with holiday cooking and want to feed the family, perhaps guests too, a great breakfast. This casserole can even be made the night before.

There’s no heavy bread in this dish. After all, aren’t we still stuffed from Christmas dinner. Fluffy eggs, your favorite breakfast sausage and cheese. Cause we all love cheese right?!

Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

This breakfast casserole is one of my personal favorites. Us Southerners love our hot sauce too and I add a few dashes to my serving. It’s so good! I occasionally make this when we are in the mood for a breakfast for supper kind of night. If you have leftovers, they re-heat beautifully in the oven the next day.

I appreciate an easy to prepare breakfast after I’ve spent days cooking. December also happens to be a very busy month overall with baking homemade goodies, decorating, and most likely shopping. There are trips to the post office, cards to write and send. I love it all but am ready for the New Year after December 25th rolls around.

Can I use bacon in place of the sausage?

You sure can or chopped ham if you prefer.

I tried this one tonight and did not care for it at all. The texture of the casserole was spongy. This was a waste of ingredients. I will not be making this again.

I added little pieces of cream cheese to it!

I made this yesterday, and it turned out great - thank you! I adapted it by making it in two 8" glass cake pans. One had the sausage, and the other had sauted onions & peppers (vegetarian). I shredded an 8-oz brick of sharp cheddar & split between the two. Cooking time was the same. I served with salsa, and everyone loved it!

I too am wondering if this egg casserole could be prepared the night before and cooked in the morning.

Yes, you could prepare everything and just bake it the next day.
