Layered Brunch Squares

It honestly gets no easier than this breakfast casserole.  It’s SO easy to throw together, and it’s delicious and carb free! Prep in advance and rewarm if needed.


pkgs pork sausage (I used Italian, but you can use hot or mild)
1 small can green chiles
1 sweet onion (preferably Vidalia), chopped
4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
10 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly cracked pepper
Hot sauce (such as Melinda’s or Tabasco), optional


  1. Spray a glass casserole dish (13×7) with cooking spray.  Brown and crumble the sausage, and cook the onions until they’re translucent and drain.
  2. In the casserole dish layer the ingredients as follows: 1. sausage and onions, 2. green chiles, 3. cheddar cheese, 4. beaten eggs mixed with salt and pepper
  3. After you’ve poured the eggs over the first 3 layers, bake the casserole at 375 degrees F for about 35-40 minutes (or until bubbly and eggs are cooked).  Let sit 10 minutes and then cut into squares.
  4. Serve your favorite hot sauce alongside if you like.

The casserole can easily be made the day before.  Just cool it and then wrap in foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate.  Reheat the next day at your tailgate (on the grill or in a microwave if you have access to one) and enjoy!
