Tasty Tuesday - Southwestern Breakfast Casserole

A few weeks ago, a friend emailed this recipe to me.  I love breakfast casseroles so I decided to give this one a try.  I think you'll like it!  You'll need these ingredients:

1 lb. of spicy breakfast sausage
10 eggs
3 cups milk
2 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. salt
6 slices of bread, cubed
8 oz. (2 cups) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 med. tomato, seeded & chopped
1/2 c. black olives
1/2 c. thin-sliced green onions
* To make this with fewer calories and less fat, I used lowfat Jimmy Dean sausage, skim milk, reduced fat soup, and 2% milk shredded cheese.

Step 1:  Cook the sausage, stirring frequently and breaking up any large chunks.

Step 2:  Once done, drain, then set aside to cool.  In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, mustard, pepper and salt.  Stir well.

Step 3:  Lay slices of bread in the bottom of a greased or sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish, then cut bread into cubes.  I added a couple more slices of cubed bread.

Step 4:  Pour egg mixture evenly over the bread.  Top with the tomato, olives, green onions and cilantro.

Step 5:  Pour soup over all, then add sausage and cheese.  Place into refrigerator overnight.  In the morning, preheat oven to 325 degrees and bake uncovered for one hour or until the eggs are set.


  1. It is so easy to make. I will surely try this.

  2. Oh my oh my oh my! Yes! I'll try this. Looks absolutely heavenly! Thanks.
