How To Make Sausage Egg Bake

Step 1. Prepare for baking. Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.

Step 2. Cook the breakfast sausage & veggies.  Add sausage to a large skillet set over medium heat. Crumble and cook for 2 minutes. Add onions and garlic and cook until browned. Add greens, broccoli, and red pepper and cook about 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3. Assemble the breakfast casserole & bake. Pour the cooked veggie and sausage mixture into the prepared baking dish. Top with feta cheese. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and the milk. Pour over sausage-vegetable mixture and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until eggs are set. Let cool slightly and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  1. Chop all veggies evenly, making sure to cut them into the same size for even cooking.
  2. Grease the casserole dish before baking as the ingredient could stick.  
  3. When pouring the veggie and sausage mixture into the casserole dish, distribute it evenly to make sure you get a taste of everything in each bite.
  4. Let the sausage egg bake cool slightly before cutting and serving. This gives a chance for the eggs to set which will make them easier to remove from the pan.

Variations

  • Make this breakfast casserole dairy-free by removing the feta cheese. You can leave it out or add your favorite non-dairy shredded cheese substitute. 
  • A vegetarian breakfast bake is easy to make by removing the breakfast sausage and replacing it with more veggies, or adding a plant-based veggie sausage substitute. 
  • Change up the cheese: Add cheddar, pepper jack, gouda, or mozzarella. 
  • Use paleo breakfast sausage and omit the cheese for a satisfying paleo breakfast.
  • Substitute the milk for dairy-free milk, heavy cream or water, if needed.
  • Add some spice by sprinkling the top with red chili flake or adding diced jalapeno to the vegetable mixture. 
  • Add your favorite combination of greens and vegetables.

  1. AWSOME…..yumlishious….

  2. This dish is delicious just as is! Guess what, I only change the ground turkey to turkey sausage as I like the seasonings that are added. After taste testing it myself I do not need to wait to serve it to know that it will be a big hit. Typed in turkey, eggs and spinach to find recipe but the feta is wonderful addition. Yum!

  3. Delicious. I used turkey sausage – we loved it.

  4. Ashley – This looks absolutely delicious! I think this will be perfect for our Christmas breakfast!!
