Green Chile Egg Casserole

Green Chile Egg Casserole

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 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.)

Made this yesterday, with a few changes: Used 8 eggs, 4 oz can of Green Chiles, only used 1.5 cups of regular shredded Cheddar cheese instead of the Monterrey Jack, then I cooked in 8x8 for 45 minutes. And WOW - is this good!

Agree with AC, the meat portion is a big high, almost more meat than egg, so could consider adding more egg (I've tried 6 eggs + 2 whites). Agree with decreasing the meat portion, have to watch the bake time otherwise the cheese just turns into oil and no longer "cheesy" in the final product. I left out pepper to appreciate the full green chile component. Don't think it needs any flour, if anything the flour makes it taste a bit starchy. I do the same thing as Linda and make breakfast burritos out of the leftovers!

This is a good, basic recipe. I make my own chili verde (no thickener) and used one cup to the drained sausage (I use hot sausage). I also added 10 eggs, and a bit more cheese. I cut the casserole in to long pieces and put them in a burrito tortilla for work day breakfasts. You could also add a starch, but I don't find that necessary.

I used 8 eggs and spicy sausage. ALSO... based on a casserole my mom used to make... I cut 2 slices of bread in small cubes and put that on the bottom of the casserole. You get more to eat and it makes the texture more interesting. It was great.

My wife suggested that I add 2 Tablespoons of flour with the beaten egg and milk. It made everything a bit a more firm when done compared to other baked egg dished we've made. The results were great. Maybe you should try it too.

I love, love, love this recipe. Made it exactly as shown and it was fantastic. I just got a whole bushel of Hatch chiles, so I was looking for some good ways to use them. I will definitely make this again.

This was really good. But you have to be careful of the bake time. I omitted the sausage and put in shredded chicken. I also used 1C cheddar instead.

To my taste, there was a lot of sausage in the final dish. I'll probably play with the ratios some. Great starting point, and if you love sausage, this is for you.
