Breakfast Tamale Casserole

WP_20140822_001 1

  • 1 cup masa harisa
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup lard
  • Dash salt

Mix into batter, press into bottom of loaf pan

  • 1lb pork breakfast sausage, browned
  • 4oz cheddar cheese, chopped
  • 6 eggs, beaten

Layer pork and then cheese on top of masa.

Pour eggs on top.

Bake at 350°F for 40 to 45 minutes or until eggs are set and cheese is browning.

Serves 6. Approximate nutrition:


Notes for next time: Find a different fat than lard, or dilute with some bacon grease or veg oil for better flavor. The corn layer separated from the egg/sausage layer, is there any way to bind them together? Maybe add baking powder to leaven a bit.
