Instructions Checklist
  • Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish and set aside.

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add oil, onion, and bell pepper. Cook until onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Heat a second skillet over medium-high heat and cook chorizo until browned on the outside, about 5 minutes. Continue cooking, chopping chorizo with a spatula, until it becomes loose like ground meat, about 5 minutes more. Drain and discard grease. Set aside.

  • Whisk eggs, milk, mustard, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Stir in 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, cooked onion mixture, chorizo, and hash brown potatoes. Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish, cover with aluminum foil, and refrigerate overnight.

  • Remove casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes ahead of time. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake covered casserole in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese on top. Return to the oven and bake until a fork inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 30 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

For a spicier option, add some diced jalapenos, chiles, purple onion, or diced red pepper. Use gluten-free Bisquick(R) (3/4 cup) in place of the hash browns. Likewise, you can substitute almond milk or another non-dairy option for regular milk.

I didn't have chorizo - used bulk pork sausage instead. It was a big hit at our New Year's Day brunch. Would make again & would like to try it with the chorizo.. Read More
