This Waffle Sausage Breakfast Casserole requires minimal prep and is loaded with waffles, sausage, eggs, cheese, and maple syrup! Sweet/savory brinner perfection!
Today’s post is sponsored by our friends at Kroger.
In case you missed it, the theme of Show Me the Yummy is “Easy Recipes for Yummy Food”.
And I gotta say . . .
Thank GOODNESS that’s our theme, because the past few
days weeks months, have been insanely busy.
Meaning, Trevor and I barely have time to sleep and take Teddy for a walk, let alone COOK. So when Kroger reached out to us and asked us to create a quick and easy recipe, I was all over it.
Where my busy people at, because you’re gonna love this recipe . . .
Waffle Sausage Breakfast Casserole.
Repeat after me.
Waffle Sausage Breakfast Casserole.
This is the perfect recipe for busy people.
This is the perfect recipe for ANY people, because it’s insanely delicious, but it’s extra super perfect if you’re really busy, because it comes together in a cinch.
Quick? Easy? Deee-lish?
I have never been a big breakfast person . . .
Pancakes, donuts, pastries – pass.
Pasta, pizza, tacos – gimme . . .
until I started a blog, that is.
Lately, I’ve been OBSESSED with breakfast foods.
I’ve even been making breakfast for dinner (brinner) <– *gasp*, I would’ve thrown a fit if my mom would’ve made breakfast for dinner growing up.
Gimme all that breakfast for dinner deliciousness.
Especially if it’s in the form of this Waffle Sausage Breakfast Casserole.
First, you’re going to cook some breakfast sausage in a cast iron skillet.
While that’s happening, prep the rest of your ingredients:
- Cube some Homestyle Ego Waffles <– this makes up the base of our Waffle Sausage Breakfast Casserole and it helps make this recipe sweet, savory, fluffy perfection
- Slice some green onions
- Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper
To the above, you’ll then add in the cooked sausage, cubed waffles, sliced green onions, and shredded cheese . . .
Today, I used pre-shredded, because today is all about tasty time savers:
- Pre-shredded cheese <– yes
- Frozen Homestyle Ego Waffles <– double yes
You’ll mix everything together, then add it all into the cast iron skillet.
Bake it for an hour and
Yes. The cook time is 60 minutes, but the prep is minimal (and helllooo if you have a cast iron skillet, it’s basically a one pan wonder!), and the 60 minutes is inactive cook time, so feel free to watch an episode (or two) of your latest favorite tv show. 🙂
After the casserole is baked, I highly suggest drizzling the entire thing in pure maple syrup.
The result is fluffy, hearty, sweet, savory, ultra cheesy, breakfast/dinner/brinner HEAVEN.
