The BEST Breakfast Casserole is an easy breakfast casserole recipe that has sausage, eggs, cheese, and sour cream! It’s perfect for a holiday breakfast or any brunch!


  • 1 lb. Breakfast Sausage
  • 4 ounces of Cream Cheese
  • 3 cups Bread Cubes (About 56 slices, or 6 Hawaiian rolls!)
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 8 ounces Shredded Cheddar, divided
  • 4 ounces Sour Cream
  • 1 10.5-ounce can of Cream of Mushroom Soup


  1. Brown your sausage over medium-high heat until crumbly and cooked through.
  2. While your sausage browns, rip up your bread into a greased casserole dish.
  3. Add in the 4 ounces of cream cheese stir to melt the cream cheese, and incorporate.
  4. Pour the cream cheese and sausage mixture over the bread.
  5. Top with 3/4 of your 8 ounces of shredded cheese.
  6. Scramble up your 8 eggs and 1/2 cup of milk, and pour over the sausage and cheese.
  7. In a separate bowl, whisk cream of mushroom soup and sour cream together, then pour over the egg mixture.
  8. Top with the remaining cheese.
  9. Bake at 350˚ for 35-45 minutes, or until the middle is set.
  10. Let it rest for a few minutes before digging in and serving!


You can make this the night before, and bake in the morning. I recommend baking in a water bath for a custardy texture!
