Ingredients

1 lb
bulk sausage (i prefer medium spicy)
1 can(s)
diced tomatoes and green chilies - drained (10 ounce size)
1/2 c
chunky style salsa (medium or hot)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease 7x11 baking dish.
2
Crumble and brown sausage in skillet and drain well. (I blot crumbles with paper towels to remove as much grease as possible.)
3
Pour tomatoes and green chilies, salsa and cheese in skillet and cook on medium to medium-low heat, stirring constantly just until cheese melts. Remove from heat.
4
Beat eggs in a bowl with 1 1/2 tsp salt, sour cream and half and half. Fold in crumbled sausage and tomato-cheese mixture.
5
Transfer all into prepared dish and bake uncovered for about 25 minutes or until the center is set.
6
Garnish with dollops of sour cream and salsa.
7
A nice variation is to add onions, green peppers and mushrooms. There are so many variations to this recipe!
