Breakfast Burrito Casserole

Ingredients List

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 lb breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
  • 6 large flour tortillas, cut into strips
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Customization Options

  • Vegetarian: Substitute sausage with black beans or sautéed mushrooms.
  • Spicy: Add jalapeños or hot sauce to the mixture.
  • Healthier: Use whole wheat tortillas and low-fat cheese.

Preparation Steps

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Cook the Sausage: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage until browned. Remove from heat and drain any excess fat.
  3. Prepare the Egg Mixture: In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Combine Ingredients: Add the cooked sausage, shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses, diced tomatoes, onions, and bell peppers to the egg mixture. Stir until well combined.
  5. Layer the Tortillas: Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Lay down a layer of tortilla strips, pour half of the egg mixture over the tortillas, then layer another set of tortilla strips, and top with the remaining egg mixture.

Baking Instructions

  1. Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  2. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the eggs are fully set and the top is golden brown.
  3. Cool Slightly: Allow the casserole to cool for about 5 minutes before slicing.

Serving Suggestions

  • Garnishes: Top with fresh cilantro, sliced avocado, sour cream, and salsa.
  • Sides: Serve with a side of mixed fruit or a light salad for a balanced meal.
  • Brunch Setting: Pair with mimosas or fresh orange juice for a delightful brunch experience.

Storage and Reheating Tips

  • Storage: Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Reheating: Warm individual portions in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, or reheat the entire casserole in the oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes.

Customization Options

  • Protein Variations: Swap sausage with bacon, ham, or tofu.
  • Cheese Choices: Try different cheese varieties like pepper jack or mozzarella.
  • Vegetable Additions: Add spinach, zucchini, or corn for extra nutrition.
