Breakfast Casserole: Potato, Egg, Fontina & Sausage

I woke up with the cooking bug today! I had seen a similar recipe in a blog a while ago, but it seemed like too much trouble for early in the morning. But it's really not that much trouble if you do a little preparation the night before. 

Next time, I'll boil the potatoes, cook the sausage and cube the cheese the night before. That way, it's just a matter of assembling everything and baking it. 

This dish is so delicious and hearty, it really keeps you full until lunch. You can substitute the sausage for ham or anything else that you have on hand. Also, any cheese goes well in this recipe. Experiment with different ingredients, and you'll have a healthy breakfast ready every morning. 

This recipe yields two servings.


1 big Potato
2 ounces Fontina Cheese
2 Eggs
2 Breakfast Sausage links
Salt and Pepper


-Peel and chop the potatoes in half inch cubes. Boil until cooked in salted water.

-Cook the sausage according to package instructions. Mine were raw, so they took about 10 minutes to cook. When done, cut them into small pieces. 

-Cut the fontina into very small cubes. You could also shred it. 

-Spray the ramekins with a little cooking spray.

-In a separate bowl, mix all the ingredients and fill the ramekins.

-Break an egg on top of the mixture. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper over the yolk. 

-Bake until the egg has set. About 5 minutes. 

-Sprinkle some parsley on top and serve. 

Look at the crispy sausage!

Hi! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It sounds yummy and easy (if you do the prep the nite before (thank you for that suggestion!)). Quick question...what temperature do you recommend baking this bit of breakfast loveliness?

I'm so glad you like the recipe!

I baked it at 400 degree for about 5 minutes. Baking time really depends on how you like your eggs.
