Overnight Sausage and Egg Casserole with Green Chilies

Sausage and Chilies

This was the last recipe that I tried for my Battle of the Breakfast Casseroles.  I follow the blog “Our Best Bites” and this was a recipe that they had on their blog.  It was very good, not too spicy (my hubby can’t handle spice) but it did have a nice little kick. This recipe was cheesy which I liked.  

I liked that you made this one with plain white bread, it worked and while it wasn’t as think as the other casseroles that I have made, it was still very tasty.  I would recommend this for a shower or MOPS, it is nice and easy and will be gobbled up.  After you cook it, you are supposed to let it sit for 10 minutes.  The casserole will collapse as it cools, but don’t worry, it is supposed to do that.  It will still taste amazing.

Sausage and Chili Casserole

Overnight Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Blueberry  French Toast Casserole

This recipe was very good. The students loved it. I would recommend taking some of the crust off of the bread for the top layer. The real star of this dish though, in my opinion, is the syrup. It is so delicious. It was my first time making syrup and I have made it multiple times since I first made this dish. This syrup is especially good with waffles.

That said, if you like cream cheese, you will love this casserole. I am not a huge fan of cream cheese, so in general, this wasn’t really my favorite casserole, but if you like the richness of cream cheese, you will love this. It is sweet, and the blueberries pop when you eat them.

Overnight Breakfast Casserole with Stove Top Stuffing

Stove Top Stuffing Casserole
So out of all of the recipes that I picked for the Battle of the Breakfast Casseroles, this one intrigued me the most.  What would it be like?  Would it hold up?  Would people be able to taste the Stove Top?  I was so curious.  

This recipe was so easy, it took around five minutes to put together.  You can change the flavor by changing the turkey sausage to hot italian sausage, or changing the flavor of the Stove Top Stuffing.  Overall, this recipe tastes more like sausage than the Stove Top, so altering your type of sausage would make the biggest difference.

Throughout this breakfast, I asked the students if they could guess the secret ingredient. None of them guessed that the secret ingredient was Stove Top Stuffing. This casserole did cook nice and tasted good, however, it did not heat up well the next day. I would recommend using this recipe when you know that the whole thing will be eaten in one sitting, as it wasn’t good the second day.
