Easy Peasy Breakfast Casserole for the Weekend (or days off)

Easy Peasy Breakfast Casserole
It's Another Dose of YUM!

We all want food that's convenient, easy to prepare, and of course, delicious.

This is a recipe that is comfort food tasty and beats the pants off of cold cereal, a bagel, or a smoothie for breakfast, typical for the work week.  It makes use of what you might already have on hand in the pantry and fridge.

Easy Peasy Breakfast Casserole


  • One pound of pork sausage
  • One medium onion, chopped
  • 1-2 cups of leftover rice or potatoes
  • 2 chilies, sliced (reserve half)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (1/2 cup shredded cheese works fine if you don't have cream cheese)
  • 1 green onion, sliced (garnish)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a large cast iron or oven-safe skillet, brown the pork sausage over medium heat, along with the onion.  Once the sausage is browned, add the leftover rice or potatoes (could be mashed, a leftover baked potato, hash browns, whatever), 1 chili, garlic, and cream cheese.  Stir to incorporate, simmer for 2-3 minutes.  Salt and pepper to taste, then crack the eggs on top of the casserole and put the skillet in the oven.  Bake for about 15 minutes or until the eggs are set to a perfect Sunny Side Up.  Pull the casserole from the oven and garnish with the reserved chili and green onion.  At four servings, you can either treat a guest(s) to a delicious hot breakfast or have some tasty leftover breakfast bowls for the next couple of days.

Bachelor on the Cheap Wallet Friendly, this breakfast can be whipped up for about $5.  It's a great marriage of flavors, highlighted by that Sunny Side Up yolk oozing onto the sausage and cheesy rice.
