Breakfast casserole Bisquick recipe packed with Jimmy Dean sausage, cheese, eggs in a casserole dish. Best Christmas breakfast dish ever.
Our Bisquick breakfast casserole is to die for and always a hit bringing it to a potluck or when people come over. A hearty meal with meat or without served as is or spooned inside for breakfast burritos. We have a ton of Bisquick recipes on our site y’all. (affiliate links present)
You can enjoy this as a high protein meal, or fill an air fryer burrito with it and take it on the go! So versatile. During the winter months we are all about comfort food. I mean we would easily eat breakfast for dinner like every week.
For years I made this slow cooker breakfast casserole, similar to this but with hash browns inside too. That took most of the day to cook thru, this is much faster. Just whisk it all together, pour it into a dish and get ready for YUM in a little over half an hour. This pancake mix is used as a binder of sorts. Works great.
Sausage Breakfast Casserole with Bisquick
If you have leftover precooked spicy ground sausage from the morning before you could use that. Love making air fryer sausage patties in the morning but don’t always use them all up? Those could be diced up into smaller pieces to use too. It’s super versatile for sure.
I have even made this as a leftover ham recipe after the holidays. Use what you have on hand I always say, I hate wasting food. There are a ton of other Bisquick breakfast ideas too you can pair with these like;
- Use frozen or fresh fruit to make Bisquick blackberry cobbler. Other varieties are great too but these have a bold flavor and great with a cup of coffee.
- During the warmer months we make apple cobbler with Bisquick. I’d use fresh sliced right off the tree for that.
If you have people over you’ll want savory and sweet choices. You can use this same baking mix for all sorts of things, that is why we love it so much.
Dairy Free Breakfast Casserole
This sausage egg casserole without bread cooks up nicely like our breakfast bundt cake. Both easy recipes but this one is without the heavy carbs. You will be just as full because this has a lot more protein in it. If you need dairy free options like when I am cooking this for my husband there are a few options.
You can really use any milk product you want to make our breakfast casserole Bisquick style dish. Lactose free, almond milk etc.. Daiya has a great cheese shreds that still melt well and taste amazingly similar to the real thing.
- 1 cup of Bisquick
- Milk, whole or 2% is always best for moisture
- 5 eggs
- Cheese shredded, cheddar is great
- Ground pork sausage cooked and drained, chopped up cooked bacon, or diced meat of your choice (or omit entirely)
- A bell pepper diced fine
- Onion diced is great but optional
- Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
Dairy Free Breakfast Casserole
My husband needs this option so I get it. I like Daiya shredded cheese, cheddar and plain almond milk works great too. Done! And tortillas if you want to be able to make burritos out of this. If that is the case I would have homemade Qdoba salsa verde and avocado slices available too.
Breakfast Burrito Casserole
You wouldn’t make this any differently if this was going to be a filling, and not just right out of the container. You’ll want all the veggies and meat cooked beforehand so you’ll need a pan on the stovetop for that step, doesn’t take long.
- Chop your bell pepper and onion into small pieces if you want to include these, mushrooms would work well too. In a large skillet over medium heat begin to brown the breakfast sausage.
- Add the pepper & onion.
- Continue to saute until the sausage is no longer pink and veggies are slightly tender.
- Remove from heat and set aside. Drain any excess grease at this time. In a bowl whisk together Bisquick, eggs, milk, oregano and a pinch of salt & pepper.
- Spray your baking dish with cooking spray. Size should be 9×11 or similar, then spread the drained and cooked sausage mixture in an even layer.
- Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Top with the egg mixture.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for approximately 35-40 minutes or until middle is no longer wet.
When it is set take out and allow to set so the eggs and cheese firm up and your slices are pretty. Super quick and easy breakfast recipe right? Even my picky youngest daughter eat this up and ask for seconds when I make this one. They like a bit of salsa on top, Tobasco is great for a bit of heat too on eggs.
If you want to serve another sweeter dish, use refrigerated biscuits and follow our Pillsbury cinnamon roll breakfast casserole recipe.
Easy Breakfast Casserole
Tip: I would not use the lower fat boxed mix that they offer. I’ve baked with it to make Bisquick sausage balls and things turn out drier than I would like. Made with the good old fashioned yellow box and the texture and moisture was much better, what I was expecting.
There is a gluten free variety out there if you need that. I don’t find that there is a difference with that, just use 1:1 for what is listed below. It is a great option for those with celiac though so this can be enjoyed by everyone.
How to save your leftovers – You’ll want to store in the fridge in a sealed container after it has cooled completely. Reheat in the microwave for about 1 minute. Note that the texture will not be the same. If you wanted a bit of crisp on the top again I would put into a springform pan in your air fryer for 3 min at 400.
