Tortilla Breakfast Casserole

Tortilla Breakfast Casserole

This is the breakfast casserole that you didn’t even know you wanted this winter. It has delicious breakfast ingredients: sausage, eggs, cheese and is about as easy to toss together as any breakfast casserole.

But the real key to this dish is the tortillas. Layered throughout the casserole are big chunks of corn tortilla. In the middle they soak up the casserole almost turning into an enchilada. But on top they turn into super crispy, crunchy shards.

Depending on your schedule and mood, you can make this casserole the day of or toss it all together the night before and then just bake it off in the morning!
