Ingredients for Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole
This recipe is easy to make and only requires a handful of ingredients.
- sausage- breakfast sausage or italian sausage both work for this recipe.
- half and half
- shredded cheddar cheese
How to Make Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole
First, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then, brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. While the sausage is browning chop broccoli into very small pieces and steam in the microwave with a little bit of water. It should only take about 3 to 4 minutes depending on the strength of your microwave.
Next, in a separate bowl, crack your eggs and add the half and half. Whisk together until eggs are scrambled. Add a little sprinkle of pepper and stir in.
Once your sausage is browned, add your spinach and broccoli to the sauté pan. Cook until spinach is wilted. Isn’t it crazy how spinach just disappears like that?
Then, grease your 9×13″ pan or casserole dish and pour the sausage and vegetable mixture in.
Next, pour egg mixture on top and try to even out the meat and vegetables in the dish.
Next, spread your cheese on top.
Finally, bake at 350 degrees about 20 minutes or until eggs are set (they won’t jiggle when you move the pan).
