  • ½ pound bulk pork sausage

  • 1 teaspoon oil, or as needed

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, diced

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 12 eggs

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer sausage to a bowl and set aside. Add oil to the skillet and heat over medium heat. Add bell pepper and onion; season with salt and pepper and cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  3. Add sweet potatoes to the hot skillet. Season with salt and black pepper; cook and stir frequently for 5 minutes. Cover skillet and cook 5 minutes more. Remove lid and cook until potatoes are browned, stirring frequently, 5 to 7 minutes more. Set aside.

  4. Whisk eggs, milk, 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, garlic powder, dry mustard, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl.

  5. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Add egg mixture and scramble until nearly done but still a bit wet, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  6. Layer sweet potatoes in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan. Pour in scrambled eggs, 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, onion-pepper mixture, and sausage, in that order. Top with remaining cheese.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until warmed through, about 10 minutes or until ready to serve.

Cook's Note:

This casserole can also be cooked in a slow cooker; heat on Warm for 1 to 2 hours.
