Okay here is the deal. I am a very picky eater. I know comes as a surprise huh? I would never guess that as much as I like to cook that I am actually very picky. I like things just right and I like things to cook just right. Well when it comes to breakfast casseroles I have a great dislike for them.
I have had my fair share of having to cook them for different reasons. One is that it is an easy dish for serving to lots of people at once. It is a one dish meal, which means less mess and less clean up. However I hate some of the ingredients when they cook together in a 13×9 inch pan. I know, I’m weird.
My first big pet peeve is that with the usual casserole it is eggs, cheese, bacon or sausage, and shredded potatoes or hash browns. Well I can never get it right. They eggs are either still runny and the edges are brown, or the eggs are done and the potatoes are not finished. You get my drift it is just such a variance in cooking. Plus here is the biggie, I hate eggs! I know it is almost un-country of me. I grew up raising chickens and gathering eggs. However after my son was born. I can’t stand them. So runny eggs in a casserole almost makes me loose last nights ice cream and cookies.
One of my dear friends gave me this recipe and I must say it is my FAVORITE!! Not only is it good, but it comes out perfect every time. It also tastes awesome heated up for leftovers. You simply, No you MUST try this ASAP. You will be amazed at how easy and how good it is.
For the record I use Swaggerty’s Sausage because: 1. it is amazing, and 2. it is made near my home town. So I have to use it and I enjoy using it. Ever since they brought it to Sam’s Club in Casper, Oh my I buy like 8 boxes when I go up. Love this stuff.
I have also made this with bacon. I added cheddar and Monterey cheese it was divine.
So hurry. Start cooking it. Make it for lunch, or supper, Just make it!
Flawless Breakfast Casserole
- 1 lb sausage
- 1 container of Grands biscuits, cut into pieces
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 small can of chilled or jalapeños
- 6 eggs
- Salt and pepper to season
- 1/4 cup milk
Cook and crumble the sausage until no longer pink. Spray a 13×9 inch casserole dish with cooking spray. Arrange the biscuit pieces over the bottom. Mix up the eggs and milk. Add the salt and pepper to the eggs and stir.
Layer the sausage and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese over the biscuits. Sprinkle the chilled or jalapeños next. (These can be left out.) Pour the egg mixture over the casserole. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.
Cook for casserole at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
