I absolutely love this breakfast casserole. This is such a versatile dish that can be adapted to fit your needs. You may substitute ham or bacon for the sausage if you’d like. Also, you may substitute different vegetables. I love it, because you can prepare this breakfast casserole the day before, refrigerate it overnight and then pop it in the oven on a holiday morning. We love to have this on Easter and Christmas morning. So yummy and very filling!

I love making this recipe with Italian sausage and Old El Paso green chiles. It really takes the flavor up a notch. Some of the breakfast casserole’s I’ve tried before are kind of bland and this is anything but that.

  11. I plan on making this today. My question is this, does it freeze well? Cut into serving size portions then pull one out of freezer, microwave and waaalaaah, breakfast is served!

    • I Heart Naptime Reply

      I haven’t tried, but if other egg dishes heat up well in the microwave, this should too! I would individually wrap each serving! :)

  12. This looks perfect for Easter morning : ) Do you know if this can be made without milk or with a milk substitute? My mother in law can’t have milk. Please let me know! Thanks 😊

    • I Heart Naptime Reply

      I haven’t tried it with a milk substitute, but it’s a small amount overall. I’d try it with soy milk, if she could have that!
