Breakfast Bowl Casserole

Watching the morning news, hubby saw an advertisement for breakfast bowls and thought they looked really good.  I'm a cheapskate, plus I'm not a huge fan of buying frozen foods, maybe some frozen veggies or a frozen pizza for a quick dinner, but usually we don't each much frozen prepared foods.  After looking at the bowls, I figured I could make them pretty easily.  The first time I tried to make them, the sausage was overcooked by the time the potatoes were done, so I thought, let's try a breakfast casserole and see if it works.

Here's my take on the Breakfast Bowl, a breakfast bowl casserole, chocked full of sausage, potatoes, peppers, onions, cheese and eggs.  Sometimes hubby eats this with topped with salsa.


1 lb ground breakfast sausage
2 cups chopped potatoes
1/2 green bell pepper
1 medium onion
1 cup grated cheese (I used a cheddar & jack mixture)
4 eggs
1 cup biscuit mix (Bisquick or Jiffy Mix)
2 cups milk
1 to 2 Tbsp oil
salt, pepper, and garlic powder


1.  Chop potatoes into small pieces, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. 
2.  Heat oil in large skillet, add potatoes and sausage, cooking about 5 minutes.
3.  Add pepper and onion. Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.  Cook until sausage is brown and potatoes are starting to turn golden brown.
4.  Pour into a prepared 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
5.  Top with grated cheese.
6.  Mix biscuit mix, eggs and milk.  Pour mixture over the sausage/potato mixture.
7.  Bake 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
