    Posted by  ·  August 10, 2010

    I think this is the yummiest egg casserole ever! It can be made ahead and baked in the morning making it perfect for house guests!

    Sausage, Sun Dried Tomato and Mozzarella Egg Casserole

    1 pound sausage

    1/2 cup onions finely chopped

    2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced

    1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes

    8 large eggs

    2 cups half and half

    2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

    1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Place sun dried tomatoes (found in a package in the produce section) in a bowl of water until soft –about 15 minutes. Brown sausage in medium  skillet over medium heat until brown and cooked through, breaking up with back of fork into small pieces, DRAIN WELL. Add onions and garlic and sauté until onions are tender. Add sun-dried tomatoes and cook another stir 1 minute. Spread sausage mixture in prepared dish. Cover with 2 cups mozzarella cheese. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

    Whisk eggs and half & half in a bowl to blend well. Pour egg mixture over sausage mixture in dish. If making ahead place egg and cream mixture in a separate container and pour over sausage mixture before baking. Bake until top of casserole is golden brown and knife inserted into center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

      Sounds delicious, but please tell me what half and half is? Is it some sort of cream? Also, is it mince you are using, or is it sausage, just cut up into pieces?

      I've made a lot of egg bakes in my time, but none with sun-dried tomatoes and mozzerella cheese- I think I need to try this one this weekend! It sounds so yummy!

      Sounds wonderful. I have a breakfast casserole recipe that was given to me by a neighbor. it's good, but it's mostly potatoes. I keep meaning to redo it and reduce the potatoes and increase the eggs

      Hi - sorry I am in Australia - what's "half and half?" and is sausage minced up meat? The recipe sounds wonderful for my hungry tribe. Thank you.

      This sounds delish! I believe I will be making this very soon.
      We make something similar at Christmas, with dried bread cubes cheddar etc. added in and then it sits in the fridge overnight, ready to be popped in the fridge, as soon as the first person is up. AND gets the coffee going!!!
      Thanks muchly,
