Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

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?!

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.

What to serve with breakfast casserole?

A breakfast casserole can be served on its own and is quite delicious and filling, depending on appetite. We enjoy a few dashes of hot sauce with ours, as I mentioned before. You could also serve this casserole with a salsa if you like.

Other options to serve with a breakfast casserole include, toasted bread, biscuits, fresh fruit, a grape salad, or a potato dish.

How to Make It

Breakfast Sausage

Brown sausage in a skillet breaking up as it cooks. Next, add dried minced onion to the sausage as it browns.

Beaten Eggs

Crack the dozen eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk. Add milk, salt and black pepper and whisk together to combine.

Layering breakfast casserole

Preheat oven to 350°F

Next, add 3/4 of the cooked breakfast sausage to the bottom of a casserole dish.

Top the sausage with 1/2 of the grated cheese.

Then, pour the egg mixture over the sausage and cheese.

Cheesy Breakfast Casserole

Place into your preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the casserole is nearly set. After 30 minutes top the casserole with the remaining cheese and top with the reserved cooked sausage.

Return to the oven and bake an additional 10-15 minutes so that the cheese is well melted.

Your cook time shows 1 hour, but your instructions say that after baking 30 minutes, top with remaining cheese and cooked sausage, and return to oven for 10-15 minutes. That's only totals 45 minutes.

Is cooking time 1 hour, or 45 minutes?

Thanks,

Tim

Tim, It is 45 minutes, or until set. I've corrected the recipe card to reflect that. Thanks for asking and bringing it to my attention. ~Julia

This looks so good! What kind of sausage did you use?

Thank you. You can use your favorite breakfast sausage. For us that is usually Jimmy Dean "hot", but it will work with any.

This was so delocious! I chopped and added one orange bell pepper,one russet potato, one sweet potato, and two cloves of garlic. I also replaced the cow's milk with almond milk, and used a combo of very sharp cheddar and pamesan (only as a garnish near the end of thr cooking time), becuase our youngest child and I do not tolerate most dairy. I topped that final cheese layer with fresh parsley, and it was fantastic! Thank-you for sharing this recipe. I'm excited to try other variations as well!
