The Grass Grazed Breakfast Casserole:
This breakfast casserole's key ingredients are eggs, cheese, bell peppers, onions, and sausage. We incorporate milk and sour cream to make the egg mixture creamy, light, and fluffy.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sour cream, cheese, and salt and pepper.
Cook the sausage next, breaking it up into little pieces as it browns. Now, remove the sausage from the skillet and add the bell peppers and onions. Toss everything into the egg mixture and whisk well. Pour this mixture into a baking dish and bake for 35-50 minutes, until the sides are set and the middle is jiggly. As it cools, your casserole will continue to set.
Leftover breakfast casserole can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days after baking. Microwaving leftovers is a fantastic way to reheat them and enjoy this nutritious and tasty meal.
We utilize soy free chicken eggs from our farms and pasture-raised meat to ensure that our casserole is nutrient-dense and delicious.
