Southwest Sausage Bake

When we got married Jefferson and I decided we wanted to start a tradition of having a nice Christmas breakfast. Nice meaning not bagels, cereal, or pop tarts! This is our favorite thing to make for breakfast on Christmas morning. You put it together the day before so then all you have to do in the morning is toss it in the oven!

6 flour tortillas (10 inches), cut into ½ inch strips

4 cans green chilies, drained

1 pound pork sausage, cooked and drained

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

10 eggs

½ cup milk

½ teaspoon each…salt, garlic salt, onion salt, pepper, and ground cumin,


2 medium tomatoes, sliced

Sour Cream and salsa

In a greased 13x9x2 inch baking dish, layer half the tortilla strips, chilies, sausage and cheese. Repeat layers. In a bowl, beat the eggs, milk and seasonings; pour over cheese. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover and refrigerate overnight

Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 50 minutes. Arrange tomato slices over the top. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
