Breakfast Pie – Breakfast Casserole Recipes {Monday Meals}

Last week I was in Washington D.C. with our local Chamber of Commerce. It was a wonderful trip & I learned so many lessons from lobbying and listening to outstanding speakers.  My favorites were Congressman Paul Ryan, Senator Ted Cruz, Congressman Kevin McCarthy and (of course) my own Congressman Bill Flores.  Thanks to Congressman Flores‘ staff for all they did to make our time in DC a huge success.

“But what does that have to do with food?” you ask.

First, I was ready to cook by the time I got home.

Secondly, I started reading Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes  at the end of the trip. I loved reading about Shannon’s love of cooking & food, as well as having people around her table. (More on that in another post.) On Friday morning, I started flipping through cookbooks to plan Saturday breakfast and dinner. I don’t do lunches now that the kids are gone.

I planned to cook Steak Au Poivre from Bread & Wine, but was looking for one of those hearty, breakfast casserole recipes with eggs & sausage. In The Pioneer Woman Cooks, I found mini omelettes with hash brown crusts. I was craving hash browns at the time.

Saturday morning I read in bed until 10am.  Yeah, I know…the pleasures of not having very young kids at my home.

By the time I got in the kitchen, I was hungry and making crusts for mini-muffins would take a long time. So, I invented my own Breakfast Pie with a hash brown crust.

All you do is top the crust with cooked sausage, cheese and eggs.  I’m sure you could make it the night before, like a breakfast casserole.

I think the secret ingredient is the cilantro.  We also had salsa to put on top of each slice.

Breakfast Pie – Breakfast Casserole Recipes

Breakfast Pie – Breakfast Casserole Recipes

Ingredients

  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled (or bag of frozen hash browns)
  • 1/2 pound breakfast sausage (I used maple, my favorite)
  • 6 eggs
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2-3 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese (I used Mexican variety)
  • olive oil or Canola oil spray

Instructions

  1. Brown breakfast sausage in wrought-iron skillet
  2. Grate potatoes, if using real potatoes
  3. Using paper towels, get rid of moisture in grated potatoes or frozen hashbrowns. Place between 2 paper towels & pat until moisture is gone
  4. Once sausage is cooked, scoop out sausage to paper towel, leaving grease in pan
  5. Cook grated potatoes in skillet until browned - I added salt & pepper
  6. Once brown, flip. You may need to do this in stages
  7. While hash browns are cooking, use a whisk to beat eggs. Add spices & milk.
  8. Remove hash browns from skillet
  9. Add generous amount of olive oil or Canola oil spray in skillet, so hash browns don't stick
  10. Place hash browns back in skillet, making a crust on the bottom of the skillet
  11. Sprinkle sausage on top of hash browns
  12. Sprinkle cheese on top of sausage
  13. Pour egg mixture over all
  14. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until firm but not overcooked & dry
  15. Slice into pie slices
  16. Serve with salsa, pico de gallo or hot sauce, if desired

Notes

You can substitute other meats for sausage, such as crumbled bacon or diced ham

You can change the cheeses to swiss or goat cheese

If you want more eggs, add them

I might saute onions & peppers with the sausage next time
