If you’re looking for an easy recipe that’s filling and delicious, then you can’t go wrong with this easy egg casserole. In fact, casseroles got their name because they’re a one-pot, oven-to-table meal. This recipe is like making a multi-course breakfast in a single skillet. But we have to say, this easy egg casserole isn’t exclusively a breakfast meal. You can make it for brunch, lunch, and dinner, too…
This easy egg casserole calls for eggs, French bread, cheddar cheese, and sausage. For most recipes, most of your time is spent preparing the ingredients. But not with this easy casserole. The main reason being that instead of slicing and sauteing sausage links, you can get all of that prep work out of the way by using Jimmy Dean® Original Sausage Crumbles, which are savory and flavorful pieces of fully-cooked pork sausage. So there’s nothing to cook or microwave prior to putting the casserole in the oven.
If you find yourself making this easy egg casserole once or twice a week and wouldn’t mind a little variety, consider using some other varieties of Jimmy Dean® fully cooked sausage pieces, like Meat Lovers Sausage and Bacon Crumbles, which pairs perfectly with this easy egg casserole, as does Jimmy Dean® Turkey Sausage Crumbles. We hear that Tyson sausage crumbles are also a hit with breakfast burritos and quiche recipes.
