Either way it’s time to get your breakfast, brunch, or brinner on.

Browse this list of 17 hearty and delicious sausage and egg recipes to find your new favorite!

1. Sausage and Egg Breakfast Quesadillas

Okay, the holy trifecta of quesadilla fillings here. Pepper jack cheese, eggs, and sausage in a crunchy tortilla? Yes, please!

You can really create these quesadillas in so many ways to fit your fancy. For this particular recipe, you only need four ingredients!

I’ve yet to find a sausage that isn’t good in breakfast quesadillas. All seasonings, shapes, and sizes of sausages are welcome here!

2. Egg Sausage Casserole

Breakfast casseroles are the bomb for brunches. They’re easy, filling, and always delicious. Right?

This particular casserole is all proteins, so it’s a great partner for waffles or French toast.

Cottage cheese may just be the secret ingredient to soft and creamy egg casseroles.

I love making these in muffin tins, too! You can freeze and warm them later for a quick breakfast on the go!

3. Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Scramble

I mean, who can say no to scrambled eggs, sausage links, and cheese? It’s an easy, cheesy, and hearty start to the day. 

I can’t get enough maple sausage links, but any variation of links will do. Add in a touch of onion for a more savory scramble.

The best scrambled eggs are creamy, like these with heavy cream. I also love a bit of creme fraiche in my scramble like the classic Gordon Ramsay recipe, too!

4. Low-Carb Egg and Sausage Bake

Who says comfort foods have to be loaded with carbs? We all know protein is the best way to keep your body going, so ditch the toast and potatoes.

Andouille sausage is the star of this recipe. You can get so many flavors, and the texture of sausage slices and over-easy eggs… *chefs kiss*

Add cheese and veggies, or keep it simple. A few ingredients and a few minutes is all you need!

5. Breakfast Sliders

Holy brunch, Batman! These sliders are the ultimate guest pleasing, finger-food-friendly, tasty breakfast sandwiches around.

The key to layering the sliders is baking your eggs in the casserole dish you’ll bake the sliders in.

They come out in a sheet perfect to lay on top of the slider bottoms.

Then, sprinkle on your sausage and add cheese to hold it all together.

Glaze the buns with maple butter to have a sweet, savory, and scrumptious little slider for all to enjoy.

6. Easy Sausage Quiche

I’ll never know why, but quiches are so sophisticated in my mind. Something about the flaky crust and savory fillings is divine.

It almost makes me feel like a queen at the breakfast table!

If you want an easy quiche, use pre-made pie crust! It has all the flake and flavor you want, and none of the work.

Layer the eggs, sausage, cheese, and onion into the crust and bake! It’s an easy way to start your day, any time of the year.

7. Sausage and Mushroom Breakfast Frittata

Healthy eating is all about balance, right? Veggies, meats, and eggs all in one frittata is the way to go.

This frittata has mushrooms, tomatoes, and spinach baked into the egg and sausage mix.

In the same pan, cook your sausage and veggies. Add the creamy eggs and mozzarella cheese, bake and enjoy!

8. McDonald’s Sausage and Egg McMuffin

There’s no need to hit the drive-thru with this simple copycat egg McMuffin!

This tasty classic is so easy to assemble at home and saves you money at the same time.

Use an egg ring to cook your egg in that classic round shape. On your English muffin, layer the cheese, egg, and sausage and you’re ready to go!

If you’re feeling eager, you can fry up some hash brown patties for the whole McDonald’s meal. 

9. Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast burritos are my go-to for freezer-friendly breakfasts everyone will love. It’s always great to have an easy burrito recipe on hand!

This recipe has bacon and sausage rolled into a flour tortilla. Of course, don’t forget the eggs and cheese!

You can add or omit ingredients as you like with this recipe. Hash browns are a great filler to add for more burritos and less cost!

10. Egg and Sausage Sandwich

This is the ultimate breakfast grilled cheese sandwich

Gooey melted mozzarella and savory sausage are partners in crime. Smother the bread with garlic tomato paste for a rich and acidic flavor. 

The finishing touch is jalapenos for an irresistible sandwich. Toast them in a pan until crunchy and golden brown, and voila! 

11. Breakfast Pizza With Sausage, Bacon, and Scrambled Eggs

I know the internet was up in arms about the Taco Bell pizza, but have you had breakfast pizza? It’s to die for!

All the breakfast staples are loaded onto a pizza crust and baked to perfection.

If you have kids in your life, this is a total winner for breakfast any day of the week!

12. Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit Casserole

I’m all about biscuits and gravy, so when I found this recipe, I knew it would be a hit!

Cut up pre-made biscuits and spread them in a casserole dish. Then cover them with sausage, eggs, cheese, and of course gravy!

This is one of those recipes you don’t need to adapt. It’s just that good. 

And you don’t even need to know what to serve with biscuits and gravy. It’s hearty enough on its own.

13. Eggs in Purgatory With Sausage

Poached eggs in a zesty marinara sauce AND sausage? Yes, please!

This is a one-pan-wonder breakfast that is a total show stopper.

It has warm and flavorful Italian seasonings, eggs cooked to perfection, and no mess to clean up.

The best eggs in purgatory have an ample amount of melted provolone and parmesan. Oh, don’t forget the fresh basil!

14. Breakfast Salad

I know it sounds crazy, but a healthy breakfast salad is an incredible way to start the day. 

Picture a chunky guacamole with sausage and eggs. You can absolutely add more to this recipe, but it’s so good as it is.

Full of nutritious ingredients, it’s a great way to fuel your body for a busy day. 

15. Sausage Breakfast Tacos

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Tacos are the supreme ruler of meal time! 

Eggs, sausage, peppers, and cheese all taste better in a warm corn tortilla.

Of course, you can add your favorite taco fixings, but why mess with perfection?

Breakfast taco bars are one of my favorite brunch setups. It’s totally customizable and easy to make for a large crowd!

16. Polish White Borscht

Soup for breakfast? Sounds like a warm and hearty start to your busy morning.

Potatoes, boiled eggs, and Polish sausage make a hearty bulk to the borscht.

The thick and creamy soup base is full of sausage flavor to pull the dish together.

This is a classic Polish breakfast for Easter weekend, but it’s scrumptious any day or time!

17. Lazy Sunday Breakfast Dumplings

Pot-stickers for breakfast?! My only regret is not trying this recipe sooner.

Turkey sausage and garlic eggs in wonton wrappers are pan-fried to perfection. The sauces are finger-licking-good.

Try one, or try them both. Either way, this is a five-star breakfast you’ll rave over.
