Yummy Breakfast Casserole Recipe

If you want a really super delicious "Bed and Breakfast" type breakfast recipe to fix for your family or  visiting over night guests,  this recipe would be it.

While looking for a delicious sounding recipe, and something different I had not prepared before, for a Garden Club Brunch covered dish, I found this recipe.  I know you are not supposed to serve a dish not tested in advance, but it sounded so good I took the chance anyway.  Everyone loved it.

I saved a piece to take back home to my husband and he gave it his seal of approval.  So then I thought it was a recipe worth sharing with you.


As you can see the ingredients are simple.  

I always look for the healthier version for the ingredients, such as lean Turkey Sausage seen below.

And,  reduced-fat Swiss Cheese.

And, fat-free Half and Half.

The below photo shows the prepared recipe ready to go into the oven.

That does look so-o-o-o yummy!

The best part of making this recipe is that it makes two quiche-type pies, one for your family, and if you choose, one to share with someone just to say,  "We are thinking of you."

  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 3 cups shredded Swiss Cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 cups light cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt
  • 2 uncooked pie shells
  1.  Place and arrange a pie shell in each pie dish.  Set aside.
  2.  Crumble sausage and cook until completely done.  Drain sausage on a paper towel.
  3.  Allow the sausage to cool a little and mix with the shredded Swiss cheese.
  4.  Place half of the sausage and cheese mixture into the bottom of each pie shell and spread  evenly.
  5.  Beat all of the eggs together.
  6.  Combine remaining ingredients together and add to the beaten eggs.
  7.  Pour half of the mixture into each shell, over the sausage.  Do not stir.  The sausage may float to the top.
  8.  I grated some additional Swiss cheese to put on top of the finished mixture.
  9.  Then for a little color I sprinkled  a little Paprika on top.
  10.  Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes, until firm in the middle of the pie.
  11.  Cool on a baking rack.
And, that is it!  Just a simple-as-can-be recipe,  and it is really delicious.  I think next time though I will add some chopped spinach or broccoli  just to add a little more vegetables to the day.

Wishing you a wonderful Monday and a nice beginning of the week wherever you may be.


  1. Thank you for sharing my recipe with your readers. I've been making it for years and it's wonderful to know that someone else enjoys it as much as I do!

  2. Hello Miss Suzy,

    Yes, I made this recipe once for the Garden Club and then recently made it again for some of our grandchildren and they loved it. As always I change a recipe a little bit and did the same with this one.
    I posted a direct link to your blogpost also so readers have the option to visit.
