Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast Casserole
My Grandmother used to make this for us to eat when we would visit on the weekends.  It was so easy to make, and the best part is you can make so many changes depending on what ingredients you have at home.  The first recipe is my Grandmother’s way, the second is mine – when I have to count my points for WW. Smile

Breakfast Casserole:
6 Eggs
1# Monterrey Cheese
1# Sharp Cheddar
2 can’s green chiles
1 sm can PET milk
Sprinkle chiles over bottom of sprayed casserole dish, mix the remaining ingredients and pour over.  Bake @ 300 for 40 minutes.

Michelle’s Breakfast  Casserole
6 Eggs (1 small container Egg Beaters = 8 eggs, use all)
1 pkg Low Fat – Cheddar/Jack Shredded Blend
1 pkg Jimmy Dean’s Sausage Crumbles – Turkey (already cooked, yea)
1/4 cup chopped jalapeno’s (or to taste)
1 small can PET milk (evaporated milk)
Mix all together and pour into sprayed 9x13 casserole dish.  Bake @ 300 – 40 minutes.

This is always good to serve for a easy breakfast.  The best part is you can use whatever "meat" you have on hand, ham, bacon, etc.  I made one to take to work the other morning, the only problem was that I had to “smell” the goodness the whole way….without eating!!!

Hope you enjoyed – Michelle

    1. Sorry for the late reply - PET milk is evaporated milk. It comes in 2 different sizes, lg & small, I have never really looked at the oz. That is the most common brand here in the states. Hope you can find some in your area of the world :)

  3. I make a couple of different breakfast casseroles, too. Looks good!

    1. Sometimes I will even make one for an easy dinner.
