Here's another Cajun breakfast dish that is always a favorite at my house and is a meal in itself! I love to cook a big breakfast on Saturday mornings, especially when it starts getting a little cooler outside. It's savory, spicy taste is just irresistible and will have you going back for seconds! It can be assembled the night before and popped into the oven in the morning. So easy and perfect for a brunch buffet, too! Cest bon, cher!
Cajun Breakfast Casserole
3 tbs.'s butter, melted
1 pkg. (10 count) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits or homemade
1/2 lb. fresh sausage (hot or mild), casing removed
1/2 cup each, onions and bell peppers, chopped
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 cup shredded cheese (I used Colby/Jack)
6 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup half n' half
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
Salt to taste
Prepare biscuits, according to package directions. Pour melted butter into a large casserole dish to coat bottom and sides. Break biscuits into pieces on bottom of casserole dish.
Brown sausage in large skillet and drain. Add onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and jalapeno pepper and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring often. Add Worcestershire sauce and parsley. Stir and set aside. In large bowl, beat eggs and add Cajun seasoning. Add half and half and mix well.
Add the shredded cheese to the sausage mixture, mix well and spread evenly over top of biscuit layer. Pour egg mixture over the sausage/cheese mixture. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil sprinkle with extra cheese, if desired, and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more or until set. Serves 6 Bon appetit!

Tonight I will be going to a birthday bash for an old friend. We will be dining out at Artmosphere Bistro and Art Gallery and then staying for an awesome bayou blues show with Henry Gray and the Cats. Henry Gray is a Louisiana legend and has been entertaining blues fans for over 40 years! Just to give you a sneak peak, here is a little clip that I took of him and his fabulous band, playing at Downtown Alive. Grab a cold drink, and crank it up for this one, cher! Cheers!
