How to Make Breakfast Chile Rellenos Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain the chilies, removing the seeds, and dry on paper towels. Brown sausage. Grate the cheeses and mix together. Reserve 3/4 cup of cheese in a small bowl. This will go on top of the casserole later, so you can place it in the refrigerator for now.
  2. Spray 9 x 13 pan (or 3 qt casserole dish) with non-stick spray, layer 1/2 of the chilies, 1/2 of the sausage, 1/2 of the cheese, the remaining chilies, then the rest of the sausage and cheese. In medium bowl add the eggs add the milk (or 1/2 & 1/2), cheese soup, flour, salt and pepper, beating until well-mixed. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage, chilies and cheese. Bake at 300 for 1 hour. Then spread the red enchilada sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the reserved cheese you placed in the refrigerator. Bake 1/2 hour longer. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
