This Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuit Casserole is so easy to put together... a perfect recipe for a Dad to make with the kids for Mother's Day... hint hint.
Truly.. this is easy... and a very quick prep...
You can use any breakfast sausage you like... bulk sausage works the best.. but if you only have the sliced kind.. you can make it and chop it.. it will work also.
You can lower the fat and use a turkey sausage if you prefer.
You can also use egg substitute instead of eggs.. just use the equivalent to the eggs listed.
This recipe is not spicy .. had no zip... it tastes just like an sausage egg and cheese biscuit... that's what is intended... if you prefer zip .. you can add a drop or two of hot sauce into the eggs... or add chopped green onion...
I used half cheddar and half Mexican Blend shredded cheese... you can use all of one or the other or substitute with another cheese altogether.. Monterey Jack or Colby Jack cheese works well also.
I used fat free half and half in the egg mix... it adds a little smoothness and richness to the eggs... you can sub milk for it..
If you want to save time in the morning.. you can cook the sausage the night before and keep it in the fridge in the morning.. the casserole only takes a few minutes to assemble... so it can be a bit of a time saver.
Oh and did I mention that the leftovers (if there are any..) reheat well.. just a quick nuke in the microwave and you have breakfast.
This recipe serves 6.
Try this delicious breakfast!
Recipe: Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuit Casserole
All you need:
1 can Pillsbury Butter Tastin Homestyle Grands Biscuits
1/2 pound bulk breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup fat free half and half
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, divided *See TIPS
Butter flavor cooking oil spray
All you need to do:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Spray a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with butter flavored cooking oil spray.
Remove the biscuits from the can and cut them into quarters. Put the biscuit quarters in the prepared casserole dish. Add 1 cup of the shredded cheese (reserve 1/2 cup shredded cheese for later). Add the cooked sausage and toss to mix well.
In a large bowl beat the eggs with the fat free half and half. Pour over the biscuits, sausage and cheese.
Bake for 40 minutes. ***Check after about 20 minutes if the top biscuits are browning.. place a piece of foil loosely over the casserole and continue baking.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle the top with the reserved cheese and put back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese has melted.
