Green Chile Breakfast Cubes

This make ahead breakfast casserole is perfect for those crazy back to school mornings

I was first introduced to Green Chile Breakfast Cubes (or ‘Chile Cubes‘ as we call them) during a potluck/tailgate at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta a couple years back. There is always tailgating for pilots and crew after (not before!!) the flights, and since most flights happen in the early morning hours when the winds are calm and the air cool, food and drinks appear as early as 9am sometimes ;0) Chile cubes are always a huge hit; if I don’t grab one right away I miss out.

Make ahead breakfast recipes like Green Chile Breakfast Cubes are a great option when you don’t have time to cook a hearty breakfast in the morning. Just throw all the ingredients together the night before, and bake it while you (and family) get ready for your busy day. Place your Chile Cubes in a cute insulated bag like this one or this one, right out of the oven and take it with you for a work potluck (or hot air ballooning tailgate); they are always a huge hit! I like to pair a chile cube with a bran muffin or whole wheat toast, then I can have a protein and fiber filled breakfast to keep me feeling full and give me plenty of energy in the morning.

Green Chile Breakfast Cubes are sooo easy to make.

Green Chile Breakfast Cubes are so simple! You’ll just need:

  • cooked breakfast sausage
  • shredded monterey jack cheese
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • diced green chile
  • eggs
  • milk

Breakfast sausage is cooked up for Green Chile Breakfast Cubes.

You’ll first need to fully cook the sausage. I like using Jimmy Dean classic ground breakfast sausage.

Fire Roasted chopped green chile, shredded monterey jack and cheddar cheeses are mixed with the fully cooked breakfast sausage for Green Chile Breakfast Cubes.

While the sausage browns, measure out the chile and cheeses. Add the sausage when it’s done.

Eggs and a bit of milk are whisked together and seasoned to make Green Chile Breakfast Cubes

Whisk 10 eggs and 1/2 cup milk together and season with salt and pepper. Pour it into the chile, cheese, sausage bowl and stir it all together.

All the ingredients for Green Chile Breakfast Cubes are combined and poured into a casserole dish to bake in the oven.

Pour the mixture into a casserole dish (I recommend these cute casserole dishes) lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Now you can cover this tightly with plastic wrap and set it in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Simply remove the plastic wrap and bake the Green Chile Breakfast Cubes casserole when it’s convenient for you. Cut the casserole into cubes to serve and watch them disappear! I made a couple batches for Girl’s Camp for my church this summer and the girls devoured them. Feel free to add more green chile into the recipe if you are a green chile lover (like me!).
