Sausage and egg casserole recipes include easy egg casserole, weekend brunch casserole, sausage hash brown breakfast casserole and spicy sausage egg casserole. Casseroles made with sausage and eggs often include bread as a main ingredient, but cooks can also make them without bread. Recipes typically use one pound of sausage.
Easy egg casserole uses one package of sausage crumbles, combined with a mixture consisting of eight eggs, 3 cups of milk and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Additional ingredients in the mixture include 8 cups of French bread cubes and 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese. Pour the mixture into a prepared baking dish, sprinkle some more cheese on top and bake for 45 minutes. Cooks can also use this egg mixture to make a sausage, egg and cheese casserole that is perfect for brunch. This recipe uses a can of refrigerated crescent roll dough, instead of bread cubes. Line a baking dish with the crescent roll dough, add layers of sausage and shredded mozzarella cheese on top, and pour the egg mixture over the cheese and sausage, baking until the mixture is firmly set.
Sausage hash brown casserole combines one pound of mild pork sausage and one pound of hot pork sausage with a package of frozen hash browns and 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Another sausage casserole leaves out the bread and creates a savory mixture using six eggs, one pound of sausage, four types of cheese, onions and mushrooms.
