Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole



Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole, or Christmas Casserole as it's know at our house, is and easy to prepare recipe. You've been busy with holiday cooking and want to feed the family, perhaps guests too, a great breakfast. This casserole can even be made the night before. There's no heavy bread in this dish. After all, aren't we still stuffed from Christmas dinner. Fluffy eggs, your favorite breakfast sausage and cheese. Cause we all love cheese right?!


This breakfast casserole is one of my personal favorites. Us Southerners love our hot sauce too and I add a few dashes to my serving. It's so good! I occasionally make this when we are in the mood for a breakfast for supper kind of night. If you have leftovers, they re-heat beautifully in the oven the next day.    

I appreciate an easy to prepare breakfast after I've spent days cooking. December also happens to be a very busy month overall with baking homemade goodies, decorating, and most likely shopping. There are trips to the post office, cards to write and send. I love it all but am ready for the New Year after December 25th rolls around.

    1. Jennifer,
      Thank you. That casserole dish is actually from the Pioneer Woman collection and you can find it at Wal Mart ;)

  3. OMG are you kidding me? It looks like some family heirloom. I am making this for my Christmas morning breakfast. I have out of town guests. Why can't you put all the ingredients in and cook all at once? Just not as pretty or does it not cook right? Merry Christmas, thanks for your help.

    1. You can put all of the ingredients in and it will be just fine. You're right, reserving a little for the top just adds to the "pretty" factor. I hope you all enjoy it. Merry Christmas.
