This easy breakfast dish can be made ahead and baked in the morning making it perfect for house guests! It also reheats well. It for sure is an easy breakfast casserole. A slightly different take on a breakfast casserole is my California egg casserole.

The addition of sun-dried tomatoes makes this recipe out of the ordinary. The combination of sausage, mozzarella, and the sun-dried tomatoes is divine! Trust me, you will be asked for the recipe!

Sausage, Sun Dried Tomato and Mozzarella Breakfast Casserole

This breakfast casserole uses a bit more unusual ingredients (sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella) for an egg casserole, but it works! I am always asked for the recipe!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
resting time 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 1 pound sausage
  • 1/2 cup onions finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves pressed or minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt optional


Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Place sun dried tomatoes (found in a package in the produce section) in a bowl of water until soft --about 15 minutes. Brown sausage in medium  skillet over medium heat until brown and cooked through, breaking up with back of fork into small pieces, DRAIN WELL. Add onions and garlic and sauté until onions are tender. Add sun-dried tomatoes and cook another stir 1 minute. Spread sausage mixture in prepared dish. Cover with 2 cups mozzarella cheese. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

    Whisk eggs and half & half in a bowl to blend well. Pour egg mixture over sausage mixture in dish. If making ahead place egg and cream mixture in a separate container and pour over sausage mixture before baking. Bake until top of casserole is golden brown and knife inserted into center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

      1. My husband loved this recipe! I also made this for a little women’s brunch and I got a lot of recipe requests. Thanks for sharing this, Cindy!

      2. Looks so good. Perfect breakfast idea for when relatives come to visit. Can’t wait to try it.

      3. Leisa,
        To substitute half-and-half you can:
        Mix 1/2 cup whole milk + 1/2 cup light cream
        Mix 3/4 cup whole milk + 1/4 cup heavy cream
        Mix 2/3 cup skim or low-fat milk + 1/3 cup heavy cream
        Place 4 teaspoons melted unsalted butter in a measuring cup, then add enough whole milk to equal 1 cup

        Hope this helps!

      4. Half and half is equal blends of whole milk and light cream. In the U.K. Known as half cream.

      5. Sounds delicious, but please tell me what half and half is? Is it some sort of cream? Also, is it mince you are using, or is it sausage, just cut up into pieces?

      6. I’ve made a lot of egg bakes in my time, but none with sun-dried tomatoes and mozzerella cheese- I think I need to try this one this weekend! It sounds so yummy!

      7. I am having a GNO dinner tomorrow and everyone is to bring a breakfast dish, so I found mine. This looks great!

      8. Sounds wonderful. I have a breakfast casserole recipe that was given to me by a neighbor. it’s good, but it’s mostly potatoes. I keep meaning to redo it and reduce the potatoes and increase the eggs

      9. Hi – sorry I am in Australia – what’s “half and half?” and is sausage minced up meat? The recipe sounds wonderful for my hungry tribe. Thank you.

      10. This sounds delish! I believe I will be making this very soon.
        We make something similar at Christmas, with dried bread cubes cheddar etc. added in and then it sits in the fridge overnight, ready to be popped in the fridge, as soon as the first person is up. AND gets the coffee going!!!
        Thanks muchly,

        Brenda from Oshawa

      11. Oh this sounds so GOOD! A great alternative to the quiche that I keep overfilling too….

      12. Mmmmm this sounds SO good! We do something similar with eggs, cheese and jalapeno peppers, it is called Jalapeno Pie. I can’t wait to try this!!!
