I love a quick and easy breakfast casserole for entertaining like this Egg Puff! It comes together quickly in a blender and is rich and satisfying. This is an Egg Puff casserole that doesn’t have vegetables. But don’t be shy, serve it with some veggies on the side if you want it fresh. Don’t forget the hot sauce! It’s perfect fuel for a long day. This gets baked directly in the Ninja Foodi base so there aren’t any extra casserole dishes to clean up.

The Ingredients

Really, the base of this breakfast casserole is very simple.. eggs, flour and baking powder to make it and keep it fluffy. The cheese is there to make it rich and higher in protein and the breakfast sausages are there to round this out as a proper breakfast. I used cheddar cheese in mine because I thought it went well with the sausage, but use whatever you have on hand!

  • flour
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • cheddar cheese

Blend the Base

A blender gives your hand a break, but feel free to use a hand mixer if you only have that to whip up the eggs, flour, baking powder and salt. Combine it with the rest of the filling ingredients; the cheddar, cottage cheese and crumbled cooked breakfast sausages. Keep it vegetarian by omitting the sausage if you’d like.

Bake the Casserole

Add all of the mixture into a greased Ninja Foodi base. Bake it using the bake setting and cook it until the top is golden. Pretty simple! Serve it as is, in a sandwich, with some hot sauce, with sides, the choice is yours!

    Hello Lynda! The water goes in the bottom of the Instant Pot, you can see it down in the instructions of the recipe. Hope that helps!

    It doesn’t make sense where to put the water, where do you oil to put eggs if water is already there?
