  • Frying pan
  • Spoon
  • Large bowl

How To Make This Egg, Sausage, And Cheese Breakfast Casserole

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. In a frying pan over medium heat, brown the sausage. Once the sausage has browned, drain the fat and set aside. In the same frying pan, sauté the onion and bell pepper until soft. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Put the sausage, onion, and bell pepper on the bottom of the baking dish and pour the eggs on top. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and bake for 35-40 minutes until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

 

Prepping, Storing, And Freezing Instructions

If I’m making this breakfast casserole for an early morning event, I’ll go ahead and assemble it the night before, leaving off the cheese. In the morning, I’ll add the cheese and pop it in the oven. By the time I’m ready to go, I’ve got a piping hot, bubbly breakfast casserole in hand as I walk out the door!

If you’re making this for breakfast for the week ahead, just put the baking dish in the fridge for the week. Alternatively, if you prefer to freeze it, I would recommend freezing it in individual portions wrapped in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Then, night before you want to eat it, you can put your serving in the fridge to thaw overnight. In the morning, you can microwave it for about 40-50 seconds, or you can even pop it in the oven. SO EASY.
