How To Make fiesta egg breakfast casserole

  • 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!
