This is my very favorite breakfast casserole. It has a kick to it with the Rotel tomatoes and lots of cheese topped with eggs and more cheese. What could be better? It truly is a protein packed, hearty breakfast with lots of flavor! It's worth getting up for!

How to Make Hearty Breakfast Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. In 12" skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink. When done, lift with spatula and drain on paper towels, saving fat in skillet.
  2. Next, add the hasbrowns with onions and peppers to skillet and cook until slightly browned.
  3. Add the sausage back to skillet with hashbrowns. Mix well.
  4. In a 3 qt. baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam, add the mixture of meat and potatoes. Level well.
  5. In a large microwave proof bowl, add Velveeta cheese cubes and Rotel tomatoes together and microwave several minutes until melted. Stir together until smooth and cheese is all melted.
  6. Pour cheese sauce over the potato mixture. Set aside.
  7. Beat eggs with a little milk and the salt and pepper. Pour over the cheese sauce covered potato mixture.
  8. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until puffy and set, about 45 min.
  9. Remove foil and continue baking until eggs are no longer wet.
  10. Top with shredded cheddar and return to oven just long enough for cheese to melt.
  11. Let cool for about 10-12 min. Cool on rack. Cut into squares and serve.
  12. Refrigerate leftovers. This also freezes well. I wrap individual servings in Saran Wrap and freeze. When needed, I just microwave in the Saran Wrap and serve.
