  • 1 lb fresh chorizo sausage casings removed
  • 10 frozen yeast rolls thawed but still cold quartered [i.e. Rhodes]
  • 3 medium green onion thinly sliced
  • 1 small red bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese divided
  • 1 4 oz can chopped fire roasted green chiles drained
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup light cream or half and half
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spritz a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside. Quarter the rolls and arrange in a single layer on the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  • In a medium size skillet over medium-high heat, cook the chorizo sausage until no pink remains. Drain all but 1 Tbsp of drippings from the pan.
  • Cook the green onion and red bell pepper in the drippings for 3-4 minutes until softened. Season with salt and black pepper to your taste.
  • Sprinkle the cooked chorizo over the quartered rolls and sprinkle with 1/2 of the shredded cheese.
  • Whisk together the eggs, cream, and seasonings. Add the cooked onion and peppers and drained green chilies.
  • Pour evenly into the dish. Sprinkle the top with the remaining pepper-jack cheese.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature. Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden and puffy and a toothpick inserted into the center comes back with moist crumbs.

  1. Made for New Years Day brunch as a special treat for my grown son who LOVES chorizo! He continued to eat the leftovers the next 2 days u til completely gone. Delicious!

  2. This may sound like a dumb question, but are you talking about raw frozen rolls or cooked and then frozen rolls? Thank you.

  3. 5 stars
    The roll have a nice soft texture which is different from other breads and chorizo is a tasty favor. Very easy to assemble

  4. Can this be made on a Friday night for Sunday morning breakfast? Also what would be best way to adjust recipe for a slightly larger pan such as 16×11.
    Thanks, Laurie

    1. I’ve never made this two days in advance so, I can’t answer that with certainty. You’d probably need 1 plus 1/2 of this recipe to fill a larger pan.

      1. You can make this one day in advance possibly two, but I haven’t tested it. If you try it let us know how it goes.

  5. This sounds really good, have you tried w/ a different sausage. Not every in my house will eat chorizo s bennett

  6. Thanks ladies!

    Tina, my apologies, I didn’t make that very clear. I’ve adjusted the instructions to read that you top with the remaining cheese after pouring the egg mixture into the dish. Half goes over the sausage and quartered rolls, then the rest on top.
