Easy Breakfast Casserole
This easy breakfast casserole is perfect for a holiday brunch or a weeknight meal! Easy to throw together and ready in just a little bit.
- 1 ½ lbs sausage
- 2 Cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- 6 large eggs
- 1 Cup Biscuit Mix
- 2 Cup Milk I use whole milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350. Cook the sausage in an oven proof frying pan over medium heat on the stove top. Once sausage is cooked, I usually scoop it out and then spray the pan good with non stick spray - but this is not necessary. I just don’t want to take any chances on this sticking to my pan. If you do not have an oven proof frying pan, use a 9x13 baking dish instead and pretreat it with non stick spray. Anyway, replace the sausage into the pan and sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top.
In a medium sized bowl, mix the eggs, biscuit mix and milk together - beat slightly and add salt and pepper to taste. Pour this over the top of the sausage and cheese.
Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes (what makes the difference is the size of the pan - if you are using a skillet, it will take about 40 minutes). It is done when the center is no longer jiggly if you shake the edge of the pan
When browning the sausage, you do not have to get the sausage crispy, just cook till the pink is gone.
This casserole tastes best if you grate your own cheese, but if that isn't in the cards for you today, then bagged shredded cheese is fine.
