Cheap and Easy Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Updated on September 5, 2017

Brunch or Breakfast Bake

The men in our neighborhood use to come to our house to play poker once a month, and after poker they always wanted something to eat. I use to make this for them.

I've also made it when having overnight company because it's easy to serve and better than cooking the eggs separately.

This is a recipe you make the night before and place in refrigerator.

When our granddaughter was married, we had family in the house and in their camper in the yard and some that stayed in a motel nearby. For breakfast, we had the breakfast bake and my Sticky Gooey Sweet Rolls From Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls. It's a very good breakfast casserole and so yummy.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 2 hours
Yields: 8

Brunch Bake

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk lean pork sausage or turkey sausage crumbled into small pieces. (I used Jimmy Dean)
  • 3 cups onion/garlic flavored croutons
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups milk (divided) into 2 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup
  • 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (101/2 ounces) cream of mushroom soup (you can use any soup you would like)
  • 2 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (optional)

Instructions

  1. Brown sausage in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes drain. Spread croutons in ungreased 9 x 13 oblong baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle evenly with drained sausage and 1 1/2 cups of cheese, set aside.
  3. In a blender container or medium mixing bowl. Blend or whip with a wire whisk the 4 eggs, 2 1/4 cup of milk, mustard and salt until well combined. Pour over sausage mixture; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Remove pan from refrigerator; discard plastic wrap.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together with soup and remaining 1/2 cup milk until smooth; pour over casserole.
  6. Sprinkle lightly with frozen hash browns. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake covered with aluminum foil, at 350° for 1 hour. Uncover; bake 30 minutes more, or until center is set.
  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle with paprika, if desired. Let stand at least 5 minutes before cutting into serving pieces.

      You have some of the best recipes! I pinned this one to my 'Breakfast' board on Pinterest. I like something that can be put together, or mostly so, the night before so that one can spend more time with their guests.

      I hope you are well, Sharon. I think you are so lucky to live up where it's cool. Take care . . .

      This is pretty good even without the sausage for people who don't like to eat meat. Of course Morning Star has substitute vegetable protein sausage if someone wants to use that instead. Just letting you know your recipe is delicious and I've pinned it to my 'Salads, Soups, & Casseroles' board.

      I could tell from the photos that the croutons go on the bottom of the dish. How about the hash browns? Are they also on the bottom with the sausage and egg and cheese mixture over the top? I used to make something similar that would set up overnight in the refrigerator but it called for bread, eggs, cheese and sausage if desired + seasonings. In the morning one simply popped it into the oven and baked it. I had not thought about it in years until reading this hub.
