Tortilla and Sausage Breakfast Casserole


6 medium burrito size flour tortillas
1lb. hot breakfast sausage (for Authentic Mexican Flavor I use Chorizo)
1 small onion, finely chopped…
1/2 C. salsa
5 large eggs
1 C. milk
8 oz. shredded Colby jack cheese
pinch of salt and pepper
1/4 tsp. mustard powder

Brown sausage in a skillet, using a wooden spoon to break the meat apart while cooking.
Turn off the heat and stir in the salsa. Combine and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and mustard powder, set aside.
Slice the tortillas in half.
Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray, place the straight end of the tortilla (4 pieces) towards the outside of the dish.
Sprinkle with some cheese, then half of the sausage mixture, a little more cheese and repeat with an additional layer beginning with the tortillas and the end with a final layer of tortillas on top (make sure to save a little cheese for the top).
Pour the egg mixture over the entire thing.
Using your hands press the top layer down.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes.
Remove and top with remaining cheese and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
