Tex Mex Breakfast Casserole

Looking for a hearty breakfast that will keep you full all morning? Something that will fuel your for a nice long hike, or perhaps just something you can make ahead of time and throw in the oven for guests? Well, how about some Tex-Mex Breakfast Casserole!?

There’s so much in there… Tofu scramble, kale, potatoes, tomatoes, corn tortillas, and Daiya cheese.

Layer upon layer of vegan goodness:

I made this a couple weeks ago and we had it for breakfast before hiking Stanley Canyon. If you live along the front range you’ve probably heard of this hike… It starts on the US Air Force Academy and it is guaranteed to kick your butt. It reminded me a lot of Mt. Bierstadt because it was so steep and rocky, but it was (thankfully) much shorter.

And because I eat plant strong breakfasts like THIS casserole, I was ready. See?

Yes, I’m a total goofball. But you guys already knew that!

Okay, casserole. I started with a batch of tofu scramble and just went from there.  You can make it as spicy as you like, add in whatever veggies are calling your name, and it’s all good. Sweet potatoes and black beans would be amazing in there as well!

Tell us: Do you like big hearty breakfasts, or are you more likely to stick with a smoothie, or maybe some oatmeal?

  1. 1 batch tofu scramble (with kale!) (Also I skipped the sausage in this, but that's up to you!)
  2. 1 medium/large russet potato
  3. Oil for cooking potatoes (if desired, you could also use water)
  4. 10 oz can red enchilada sauce
  5. 2 tomatoes, chopped
  6. 10 corn tortillas
  7. 2 cups Daiya shreds (I mixed mozzarella and cheddar)
  8. Non stick spray
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Spray casserole dish lightly with no-stick spray
  2. Wash and chop the potato, and cook in a pan over medium heat with just a bit of oil till tender on the inside and crisp on the outside, then stir into the tofu scramble.
  3. In your casserole dish, layer in this order: 2 tablespoons enchilada sauce, tortillas (3, torn in half for best coverage), half the tofu mixture, 1/3 of the tomatoes, 1/3 of the cheese.
  4. THEN: 1/2 the remaining enchilada sauce, 3 tortillas, the rest of the tofu mix, 1/2 the remaining tomatoes, another 1/3 of the cheese. Finally, top with the last 3 tortillas, the rest of the sauce, tomatoes and cheese.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, with a minute or so at the end under the broiler to melt the cheese in necessary. Enjoy!

    That looks like a perfect, hearty meal for the colder weather we have on the way. I’m usually not much for casseroles, but as luck would have it, I recently made something very similar, only with black beans instead of tofu scramble. This sounds even better!

    I have been eating oatmeal for breakfast for the past week, but that’s because it’s been so cold in the morning, and I want something quick. But before a hike or a really important day, it’s a big breakfast all the way!

    barb!!! searched google for tofu scramble casserole and this came up 🙂 I need an idea for a main dish for this weekend….this sounds great, but I want to leave the cheeze out. Any sub suggestions? or do you think it would turn out just as well without it?? thanks <3

      Hello old friend!! How have you been? Sorry for the delayed reply, and I realize it’s too late now, but I would say either leave it out OR do one of those noochy-type cheeze sauces, assuming you’re trying to avoid the overly processed stuff 🙂

        I’m good! no worries on the delayed reply! I ended up making a similar casserole with a noochy sauce 🙂 I will try yours sometime with the same type of sauce! thanks, and hope all is well with you 🙂
