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

  • 1In 12" skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink. When done, lift with spatula and drain on paper towels, saving fat in skillet.
  • 2Next, add the hasbrowns with onions and peppers to skillet and cook until slightly browned.
  • 3Add the sausage back to skillet with hashbrowns. Mix well.
  • 4In a 3 qt. baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam, add the mixture of meat and potatoes. Level well.
  • 5In 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.
  • 6Pour cheese sauce over the potato mixture. Set aside.
  • 7Beat eggs with a little milk and the salt and pepper. Pour over the cheese sauce covered potato mixture.
  • 8Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until puffy and set, about 45 min.
  • 9Remove foil and continue baking until eggs are no longer wet.
  • 10Top with shredded cheddar and return to oven just long enough for cheese to melt.
  • 11Let cool for about 10-12 min. Cool on rack. Cut into squares and serve.
  • 12Refrigerate 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.
