Southwestern Breakfast Casserole

Posted by moderndaygourmet on August 30, 2007

I got this off the Cooking Light website and I often take it to church when it’s our turn to provide snacks.

1  (8 1/2-ounce) package corn muffin mix
3  cups (1/2-inch) cubed white bread
8  ounces hot turkey Italian sausage (or other sausage)
1  cup chopped onion
2 1/2  cups milk
1  teaspoon ground cumin
1/8  teaspoon black pepper
1  (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
5 eggs
Cooking spray
1  cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack or mild cheddar cheese, divided

Prepare corn muffin mix according to package directions; cool. Crumble muffins into a large bowl; stir in bread. Set aside. Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain.
Combine milk, cumin, pepper, tomatoes, and egg substitute; stir with a whisk until well-blended. Add sausage mixture; stir well. Stir into bread mixture. Spoon half of bread mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon remaining bread mixture over cheese. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake casserole at 350° for 40 minutes or until set. Top with 1/2 cup cheese, and bake an additional 20 minutes or until set. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
