Breakfast Bake

What’s better than a big breakfast with family and/or friends on the weekend?! Nothing. There’s just something about a breakfast spread that’s so comforting and craveable.

When it comes to a big breakfast, I like to serve a variety of dishes so you get something savory, something sweet and of course, something somewhat healthy to eat. My go-to menu for a big breakfast is usually…cinnamon rolls, fruit salad and an egg casserole or quiche. Simple & scrumptious.

This egg, sausage and cheese breakfast bake is the best! It’s impossibly easy, you can prep it ahead of time, and everyone loves it!

Breakfast Bake

It tastes just like a fluffy omelet that’s cheesy and loaded with sausage, peppers and onion. It’s got such great flavor going on in every bite. We’ll occasionally add a dash of hot sauce just to kick it up a notch, but it’s certainly not necessary.

Breakfast Bake

You just prep the sausage and the eggs separately and then combine them in the baking dish to bake until fluffy yet firm.

Whether it’s brunch with friends or just a lazy Saturday morning with the family, this breakfast bake is nothing short of great!

      Hi Laura! Yes, you can definitely prepare it the night before and bake it the next morning. It might have to bake a little longer since you’ll be putting it in the oven cold. Just make sure the center is set. Enjoy!

      Hi Tammy! The flour helps the casserole hold its form by soaking up some of the moisture while the baking powder makes the eggs light and fluffy. Enjoy!

    Hi. This sounds really good and easy to make. Thanks for sharing. I have a question-could I leave out the cottage cheese? Thanks

    • MaeganMaegan

      Hi Perla! I wouldn’t recommend leaving the cottage cheese out. You could substitute it with ricotta. Hope this helps! Enjoy!

      Hi Susan! It’s so yummy! As you can see from the pics, most of the cottage cheese melts as it bakes, but there will be a few white spots throughout. Enjoy!

      Hi Katrina! You can definitely freeze it. After you bake it, let it cool completely. Cover it in plastic wrap and then foil before placing in the freezer. When you’re ready to serve it, let it defrost in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat in the oven until warm all the way through. It should keep good in the freezer for 2-3 months. Enjoy!

    Thank you for this recipe. It is a keeper! I typically cook a big breakfast Christmas morning and so many things have to be done at the last minute. This was so yummy, it will become a Christmas tradition at my house.
