I’m not a huge breakfast person. I usually drink my coffee until about noon and then go straight for lunch fare. When I am in the mood for breakfast, I usually stick with my favorite PBJ Oatmeal. When we’re hosting overnight guests, breakfast is a must. The most amazing cinnamon rolls will likely be on the menu paired with something a little more savory for good measure. I pinned this savory breakfast recipe on Pinterest months ago and couldn’t wait to try it out and jazz it up.
This was the perfect savory breakfast and SO easy to prep!!! Bacon would be a great addition, too. I’ve even toyed with the idea of adding in some shredded hash browns, but that’s just crazy talk 😉 This is a perfect meal for a crowd and isn’t too bad served as a leftover breakfast the following morning. We had a little bit leftover when we originally served this, so we popped it in the fridge and pulled it out the next morning to reheat (in the oven at about 250 until heated through). Of course, it’s the most amazing when served fresh out of the oven the first go ’round, but it reheated really well and tasted pretty darn delicious the next morning, too.
Savory Breakfast Bake
7 large eggs
1/4 C. half & half
Tony Chachere’s or other cajun seasoning, to taste (optional)
1 (16 oz.) tube of refrigerated flaky biscuits
4-5 green onions, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 red or green bell pepper, chopped
1 pkg. Jimmy Deen or Owens sausage
1 C. shredded cheddar cheese
- Let’s start by preheating your oven to 350.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half & half, and your Tony Chachere’s.
- Now take your biscuits and cut each one into quarters. Kitchen shears are perfect for this task! While you have your kitchen shears out, cut up your green onions, too.
- Toss the cut biscuits and green onions into your egg mixture and set aside.
- Brown your sausage and toss in the yellow onion and bell pepper to soften those up as well. Remove from heat and drain.
- Now take the sausage/onion/pepper mixture and combine it with the biscuits and eggs. Stir well to combine.
- Toss the cheese into that same bowl and mix again. At this point ALL of the ingredients mentioned above are mixed together in the same bowl.
- Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish and pour in the sausage/egg/biscuit mixture. Cook at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until the eggs are no longer runny! Cut into squares and serve.
