Sausage Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Potato, Sausage, and Broccoli Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Have to feed a large group for breakfast and don’t want to feel like you’re rushing around the kitchen? Why not make an easy and delicious breakfast casserole? With a little prep work, you can toss this together and enjoy your time with your family while it bakes – and sip that coffee while the flavors come together.

Ingredients:

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • ½ lb. bulk Italian sausage (no casings)
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 large russet or Idaho potato, diced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 T. whole milk
  • 2 c. fresh broccoli, diced
  • ¾ c. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
  • 2 T. fresh chives, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with some non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Set a large skillet over medium heat and add the sausage. Cook until slightly browned, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon as it cooks, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and potato and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens and the potatoes become golden brown, approximately 6-7 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, whisk the eggs and whole milk in a small bowl and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Add one-half cup cheddar cheese and stir to combine.
  5. Transfer the sausage-potato mixture into the prepared baking dish and stir in the diced broccoli. Spread into an even layer and pour the egg mixture evenly over the top. Sprinkle remaining cheese across the top.
  6. Place in the pre-heated oven and bake until the eggs are set and the potatoes are cooked through, around 30-35 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and cool for several minutes before slicing. Top with fresh chives and serve immediately. Enjoy!
