Green Chile Egg Casserole

(6 servings)

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean pork sausage (regular)
  • 7 fresh or frozen green chiles
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
This crust-less breakfast casserole was absolutely delicious. I adjusted the recipe just slightly to accommodate my groceries. Instead of the seven fresh or frozen green chiles, I used one four-ounce can of diced green chiles (drained). For the last couple of weeks, I've been enjoying canned green chiles as almost a secret ingredient in a few egg dishes. I'm a big fan of fresh chilies, but there's something about the canned ones that cause their flavor to spread throughout an entire dish. Rather than getting pops of chili flavor (and heat), you get more of an overall essence in every morsel you eat. Both ways are great and I know you'll like this casserole whether you use fresh, frozen or canned chiles. (This recipe was submitted in 2005. It was tested and photographed in September 2013.)
