    1 hrs

  • Yields: 6-8 servings


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound turkey sausage

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup sweet onion, diced

1/2 red bell pepper, seeds removed, diced

2 cups large croutons

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, divided

10 eggs

2 cups milk

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper


In a large skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Saute the garlic and onion for 2 minutes. Add the sausage and bell pepper, and cook until browned. Drain the fat and set aside.

Spread the croutons evenly into the bottom of a greased or non-stick 9x13" baking dish or casserole dish.

Sprinkle the sausage and 1/2 cup of cheese evenly over the bread.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and milk. Stir in the paprika, oregano, salt and pepper.

Pour the egg mixture over the croutons and cheese, making sure to spread it evenly in the pan.

Cover with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, ideally overnight or up to a day ahead of time.

When you are ready to bake the casserole, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remove from the fridge and sprinkle the cheese on the casserole.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until set and the edges are just starting to crisp. If you want extra crispy edges, cook for 45-50 minutes. To test if the casserole is done cooking, insert a knife in the center of the egg casserole and make sure it comes out clean.

Let the dish sit for 10 minutes and then slice into squares.

Serve with fresh parsley, green onion, sour cream and/or hot sauce.

Leftovers will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can reheat in the microwave.

Feel free to add veggies if you'd like. You can also mix up the cheeses to use whatever you prefer. In place of sausage, you could also use bacon or ham, or just leave meat out for a vegetarian version. 2% milk is used in this recipe, but whole milk could be used for a creamier version.
