Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole Recipe (Mmmmmmm)

Need a good recipe for a breakfast casserole? Do I have one for you!  I have made several different breakfast casseroles over the years, but this one is my all-time favorite (and my kids will eat it).

Two things to know about it. One, it’s kind of spicy because it has pepper-jack cheese in it, but don’t let that scare you off. And, two, I cook it a lot longer than the recipe calls for. All the eggs and cheese in it make it moist inside and I like eggs that are really well done.

It’s probably not that great for you, but it sure is awesome. So eat a small piece with a big helping of fruit (uhhh, not pictured).


  • 1.5 lbs. of sausage, cooked and drained
  • 1/4 cup of minced onions (cook with sausage)
  • 1 tsp. dry hot mustard
  • 2 cups of  1/2 and ½
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 cups of shredded pepper-jack cheese
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 5 oz box of herb-seasoned croutons
  • 8 eggs
  • cooking spray


Spray a 9 x 13 pan (glass or regular pan) with Pam.  Place the croutons in the bottom of the pan.  Top with cheese then cooked sausage and onions.  Beat eggs with milk, 1/2 and 1/2, dry hot mustard, and add salt and pepper to taste.  Pour over the top of other items in pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Bake covered with foil at 350° for 15 minutes, uncover and bake an additional 30-45 minutes until done.

I am pretty sure this recipe came from my mom’s sister, so thanks Aunt Missy!

    Is dry hot mustard the same thing as dry mustard?

      Dry mustard is what I use. I left it dry hot mustard in the recipe because that’s how it was when I got it. So glad you are gonna make it. It’s totally good. Just cook it a lot. My dad even microwaves his after I cut him a piece to make sure it’s firm and not mushy. Deeeee-lish. Let me know what you think.
