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.

The casserole is really good - I added red, orange and green diced bell pepper while the sausage was browning - will definitely be making this again - do you think it could also be made with bacon?

Doris, That sounds delicious! Yes, you could use cooked baked or diced ham if you prefer. Enjoy! ~Julia

Any suggestions on replacing whole milk with a nut milk?

Julia Jordan

Sunday 30th of May 2021

Personally I have never used a nut milk but from what I've read you can substitute almond milk for whole milk 1:1 ratio. The article also mentioned that it may bake a little faster since the almond milk has more water than cow milk does. I hope that this helps. Enjoy the casserole!

Sounds good! But I will be adding Green, Yellow & Orange Bell peppers. Along with 3-4 Cloves fresh Garlic, 1-2 Cups Shredded Hashbrown Mix and some Chopped Broccoli! To go Lower CARB just omit the Hashbrown Mix. I will saute The Breakfast Sausage (Sweet Italian Sausage along with Lean Turkey Sausage) with All the Veggies AND I will saute The Broccoli Last for just a few minutes!
