Ingredients & Variations

Nearly anything goes great in this casserole!

VEGGIES Add mixed veggies for color and an extra pop of nutrition, or go for peppers and onions, Denver omelette style! Make a Mexican-style breakfast casserole with sliced black olives, tomatoes and salsa. Add a dollop of sour cream or avocado dip on top!

MEAT: No sausage? No problem! Ground beef or evenly finely diced chicken or turkey will work, too! Or add in crumbled bacon instead!

GO MEATLESS: For a meatless version, try placing a layer of seasoned cauliflower hash browns on the bottom of the casserole dish and then finish the recipe as directed! Or cook up some sausage substitute! Most egg-based dishes are really versatile, as long as the add-ins are roughly the same size as the other ingredients.

How to Make Sausage Egg Casserole

This egg casserole comes together in just a few easy steps.

  1. Cook sausage and veggies according to recipe.
  2. Whisk together eggs, cottage cheese, and seasonings.
  3. Spread meat mixture in the bottom of a prepared pan and pour the egg mixture on top.
  4. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on the top and bake!

Tips for Success

  • For best results, break up the meat into smaller pieces while it’s being cooked. This will make the bottom of the casserole more firm.
  • Cottage cheese is an important component, and using small curd instead of large curd will help everything stick together better.
  • Let the casserole rest after it comes out of the oven because this will give it time to firm up so it’s easier to cut!

Keep sausage casserole covered in the refrigerator until it’s ready to serve again for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply pop it in the microwave, add a little salt and pepper or other favorite seasonings!
