English Muffin Breakfast Casserole
Maybe it’s an effect of the colder weather, but I find myself craving tasty comfort foods around the holiday time, and this English muffin breakfast casserole always hits the spot! It’s perfect for Christmas breakfast because you can make it the night before and pop it in the oven on Christmas morning for a quick and easy morning meal. This yummy casserole tastes just like your favorite breakfast sandwich, but it has a special ingredient that helps your body feel better, look better, and get the most from every day!
For my English muffin breakfast casserole, I used a few basic breakfast sandwich ingredients that my family loves to eat, but you can feel free to mix things up to suit your own taste preferences. I included bacon, sausage, cheddar cheese, and kale in our sandwiches, but spinach, mushrooms, and bell peppers would also be tasty additions.
This little blue canister here is my secret ingredient for making this yummy breakfast casserole even better (and better-for-you!)!
I’ve been using Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides for a couple of years (remember when we made those delicious Cranberry Almond Energy Bites?), and it’s one of my favorite ways to add an extra boost of nutrition to dishes that I’m cooking. Collagen is the building block of our body’s skin, hair, nails, bones, and joints, and our modern diets only contain minimal amounts of collagen. Adding collagen to your dishes helps aid your body with health, fitness, beauty, and overall vitality, and we all want that! Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides are totally tasteless and odorless, so you can add them to virtually anything – hot or cold beverages, smoothies, sauces, soups, baked goods, and more! It truly is 100% tasteless, and I promise that you would never ever know that there was added collagen in here unless I told you!

To make my English muffin breakfast casserole, I started with a lightly greased 1.5-quart baking dish and five English muffins that were cut into eighths.
The English muffin pieces were layered with sausage, bacon, cheese, and kale until the entire dish was full.
I added salt, pepper, milk, and Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides to my eggs, and I whisked everything together with an electric whisk until it was light and frothy.
I poured the egg mixture over everything, covered it with foil, and let it sit for 20 minutes before baking. You could also refrigerate the dish overnight at this point, and it will be ready to be baked in the morning – perfect for Christmas breakfast!
This delicious savory breakfast dish is totally perfect for holiday brunches, potlucks, or ANY time!

Do you cook the sausage before putting it in the oven?
Yes, pre-cooked! I just updated the recipe to show that as well. 🙂
