Breakfast Casserole

By now you know that I do a fair amount of cooking and don't mind trying new recipes.  For me, experimenting with recipes is fun, but when I have to cook for someone else, I tend to make things I know will work out well.  Over the holidays was one of those times.  So, what was part of New Year's breakfast?  None other than a breakfast casserole.  I love those all-in-one dishes, although grits accompanied this dish.

Breakfast Casserole, Revised.

1 (16 oz.) package of ground turkey sausage
4 large eggs
1 (10.75) can of cream of mushroom soup
1 (12 oz.) can of evaporated milk
1 (16 oz.) bag of tater tots
shredded cheese (your choice - I used a mixture of sharp cheddar and Monteray Jack)
red and green bell peppers, julienned
one onion, sliced
black pepper
hot sauce

  1. Cook and drain ground turkey sausage.
  2. Sauté onions and bell peppers.
  3. In a separate bowl,  mix the eggs, cream of mushroom, evaporated milk, black pepper, and a dash of hot sauce.  Set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Grease 9"x13" pan.
  6. Line pan with frozen tater tots.
  7. Layer cooked ground sausage.
  8. On the next layer add sauteed onions and bell peppers.
  9. On the following layer, add the shredded cheese.
  10. On the last layer, pour the egg mixture over the top.
  11. Bake uncovered for approximately 45 minutes.

 Bon Appetit!


  1. We just got finished eating a late dinner at the waffle house. Although I've eaten just hearing the description of what you've put in here makes me want to have room for a bite.... yah know... just to try it out.

  2. I love when you speak in Celsius! :-D

    Sounds good, although I wouldn't eat that for breakfast! Tomorrow we will be trying an old recipe from my father's hometown, my aunt shared it with us these past holidays. I will let you know more about it, looks easy and I know it's tasty and perfect for rainy cool days.
