– country sausage – frozen peppers and onions – eggs – milk – pepper – tortilla chips – cheddar cheese – butter
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. If your frozen peppers and onions are in strips, roughly chop them into smaller pieces.
Brown the country (pork) sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. Once browned, add the peppers and onions and continue to cook until heated through. Set the sausage and pepper mixture aside.
Whisk together the eggs, milk, and pepper.
Grease the inside of a 3-quart casserole dish with butter.
Add the tortilla chips to the casserole dish. Press down and slightly crush the chips so they lay a little flatter.
Use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage and peppers to the casserole dish, leaving any liquid behind in the skillet.
Add ¾ of a shredded 8oz. block of cheddar to the casserole dish. Slightly stir to combine the chips, sausage and peppers, and cheese.
Pour the egg mixture over the casserole. The egg will not fully submerge the other ingredients.
Top with the remaining ¼ cheddar cheese. Bake the breakfast casserole for about 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160ºF and the outer edges are browned.
Let the casserole cool for about five minutes before slicing into six or eight pieces, then serve!
