Such a wonderful breakfast! It combines all my favorite elements of most breakfast casseroles! It is creamy, cheesy, hearty, and comforting! It can easily be doubled if you have more people to feed!

How To Make breakfast for 4

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F. In skillet, brown shredded potatoes in oil over medium heat, until softened a little and starting to brown. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, be careful here because the soup and sausage have salt. Transfer to 8×8×2 casserole dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top.
  • 2
    In same skillet, cook sausage, bell pepper, and onion until cooked through. Spoon on top of cheese. Pour undiluted soup over sausage mixture and spread evenly. Place bread slices on top.
  • 3
    Beat eggs, add salt and pepper to taste, be careful here because of previously added salt and pepper. Beat in whipped cream cheese. It will be a little chunky. Pour evenly over bread slices. Cover tightly with foil sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake in 400° oven for 35 minutes.
  • 4
    Remove foil, sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top, return to oven and bake 8-10 more minutes uncovered.
  • Finished casserole hot out of the oven!
    Remove from oven and let rest at least 10 minutes before serving. It may appear "runny" when you first spoon it out. That is the canned soup, not under cooked eggs. Enjoy!
