Recipe: Fiesta Brunch Casserole

Summary: Individual egg, bean, and sausage casseroles are a colorful choice for brunch or supper.


  • 2 cans (about 15 oz. each) pinto beans; or 4 cups cooked (about 2 cups dried) pinto beans
  • 4 ounces ground turkey sausage, crumbled
  • 3 medium-size thin-skinned potatoes (about 1 lb. total), cooked, peeled, and diced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dry basil

  • About 1/is teaspoon pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 green onions, ends trimmed
  • 8 warm flour tortillas
  • 1 cup Salsa of your choice (optional)


  1. Drain beans, reserving 1/2 cup of the liquid from cans.
  2. Pour half the beans into a bowl; add reserved liquid (if using home-cooked beans, add 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth mixed with 1 teaspoon cornstarch).
  3. Mash beans until fairly smooth.
  4. Stir in remaining beans, sausage, potatoes, basil, and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper.
  5. Divide bean mixture equally among 4 shallow 2-cup casseroles.
  6. Set casseroles in one or two 10 by 15-inch rimmed baking pans.
  7. Bake in a 400° oven for about 10 minutes.
  8. Stir; bake for 5 more minutes, then remove from oven.
  9. With the back of a spoon, impress an egg-size hollow in center of bean mixture in each casserole.
  10. Break an egg into each hollow.
  11. Sprinkle cheese equally over bean mixture.
  12. Return casseroles in pan(s) to oven and continue to bake until egg yolks are set to your liking (about 15 more minutes for firm but moist yolks).
  13. Garnish each casserole with an onion.
  14. Serve with tortillas; add salsa and pepper to taste.
