Great to serve for weekend guests because you can get it ready in advance and have coffee or maybe a bloody mary with your guests while your breakfast cooks. Great served with sour cream and home made salsa.

Have been making this for every brunch I do for years. Absolutely love it. I usually double the sausage when making for men's groups. I'm not one who measures well but just and fyi - the chilis are not hot. If the tomatoes are not good (off season) I let them add salsa to the top with sour cream and spicy peppers that are pickled.

Just a general comment AR's casserole recipes are generally way too large. Cut all ingredients by half and the results are about the correct size for a family of four. Read More

Whoa 4 cans of green chiles? Maybe I'll get up the courage to try it that way in the future. For the 1st time making it I used 2 cans of drained Rotel tomatoes as datharp1 suggested also adding part of the drained juice. I like my breakfast casseroles with potatoes so subbed 2 thin layers of frozen cubed potatoes for the tortillas. It turned out pretty good slightly spicy. Will make it again. Thanks for a new take on breakfast/egg casseroles. Read More

I made this casserole for Christmas brunch and my family loved it. I substituted two cans of Rotel tomatoes drained instead of the green chilies and used half cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheese. Read More

It was a big hit with my family (3 teenage boys and hubby) they all went in for seconds. Delicious. I did make a couple changes I added chorizo with the sausage used only 2 cans of green chiles instead of 4 and I didn't have tomatoes so I spread salsa over the top instead. I will definitely be making it again. Read More

You can change the type of sausage used to make this as the recipe calls for a sage sausage but you can use regular Italian (hot or sweet) or Chorizo Read More
