This recipe has been my go-to Easter/Mother’s Day/Anytime I need to prepare brunch casserole. I recently pulled this recipe out again this year for our annual Easter brunch. It is tasty, hearty and easily comes together the night before your breakfast. Pairs up great with a fresh squeezed mimosa and some sourdough toast:)
I used my frozen Bob Evans sausage patties that I pulled out of the freezer—set them to bake up in the oven and crumbed the patties up to use in the casserole. I bet you have everything you need to make this for your next springtime brunch. Add in your favorite veggies to make it suit your taste.
Here is what you will need to make this breakfast casserole:
- Bob Evan frozen sausage patties (15-18 patties)
- 7 eggs well beaten
- 2 Cups seasoned croutons
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 8 oz fresh grated cheddar cheese
- 1.5 C milk
- 1 C mushrooms chopped
- 1/4 C green peppers chopped
- 1/4 C green onions chopped
- On a cookie sheet with parchment cook the sausage patties in a 425 oven for 15 minutes until cooked. Drain on paper towel and place in food processor. Pulse to chop up.
- Grease a large 9×13 pan
- Place croutons in pan evenly
- Saute green pepper, onion and mushrooms until tender. Drain.
- Mix together egg, milk, soup, and veggies.
- Crumble cooked sausage on top of croutons.
- Pour on egg mixture and let settle.Cover with cheese
- Store in fridge overnight
- In the morning, pull out from fridge and let sit 30 minutes.
- Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
