Simply Healthy Family: Mexican Breakfast Casserole #SundaySupper - Food That Travels Well


Mexican Breakfast Casserole #SundaySupper - Food That Travels Well

Summer for many means long, lazy days at the pool or by the beach, picnics at the park and especially summer vacation! That usually means being away from home a lot and eating on the go. Stay away from the drive through and save money from eating out at restaurants by bringing along some travel friendly foods. This week at Sunday Supper we have put our heads together to bring you a nice list of our favorite, travel worthy snacks, sides, main dishes and of course desserts!


I made this Mexican Breakfast Casserole for my brother in law when his wife, my husbands older sister passed away last year. I'll always remember how very grateful he and his young son, our nephew were to receive it and the smile it put on their faces. I can't imagine loosing a mother {wife} who is the heart of the home and usually, as in their case the main cook.


Casseroles are the ultimate comfort food for a reason, they are hearty, piping hot and full of feel good belly foods like potatoes, cheeses and meats. Who doesn't like a home cooked casserole every once and a while? Not only do they inspire memories of home, comfort and happiness but they are very versatile, easy to make and especially easy to pack up and take to a friend, family member or neighbor in need. 

What is your favorite comfort food? 

What do you like to bring with you to snack on when you travel?

What are your favorite foods to bring to a potluck?



TIME          45 MINUTES               SERVES        6-8


4 medium size russet potatoes (or 1, 1 pound bag frozen, shredded potatoes)

10 large, free range, Organic eggs

10 ounces chorizo or spicy sausage

2 cups Jack cheese (or Mexican style cheese)

1 cup of your favorite salsa
1 tablespoon butter to grease casserole dish
sliced green onion and cilantro to garnish

Preheat your oven to 400F

In a medium size pan, cook sausage until browned. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add salsa and stir to combined. Grease a casserole dish with the butter. Add the frozen potatoes and then pour the egg mixture over the top evenly. Top with the shredded cheese. 

Bake uncovered at 400F for 35-40 minutes. The top should be golden brown. Let cool a bit then serve with chopped green onion and cilantro on top. If serving for dinner I like to add sliced radish and lettuce.
