What Can I Top This Breakfast Casserole With?

We like diced tomatoes and more chopped scallions for a crisp, fresh texture and flavor. But you can get creative and add all your favorite toppings too!

  • Sour Cream
  • Guacamole
  • Pickled Jalapeños
  • Chives
  • Chopped Black Olives
  • Salsa
  • Leave toppings off and bake with an extra layer of cheese

So like we said in the last option, if toppings aren’t your thing, or your kids’ thing, then you can add an extra layer of cheese to the casserole after it sets in the oven. Or just bake this recipe as is and serve. It’s delicious any way you slice it!

Can I Make This Breakfast Casserole Ahead Of Time?

You can make and cook this sausage casserole ahead of time and then reheat in the microwave or oven. Cut the casserole into squares and reheat in the microwave for about a minute, then top with desired toppings.

To reheat the whole casserole, cover with foil and heat in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until warmed through.

What Kind Of Sausage Is Best For This Casserole Recipe?

Pork sausage is our go to for this egg casserole, but you can use Italian sausage, spicy chicken sausage or turkey sausage too! I like the ease of using those pork sausage rolls because it breaks up very easily in the skillet when you cook it and surprisingly there’s very little grease.

If you’re using a sausage that produces more drippings or grease, just drain them from the skillet before adding the sausage to your casserole dish. Ground beef is also an option but won’t add as much flavor as sausage will to this recipe.
