Before I started making the base for the casserole I took the time to dice all the ingredients for the egg layer.  This step could also be done a day ahead.

I diced some mushrooms, yellow onion, turkey sausage and some red,  yellow and orange peppers.

These are the turkey sausages that I used.  They are handy to have in the freezer because they are fully cooked.

I set aside all the diced ingredients and prepared the base for this casserole.

Next I dumped some Gluten Free Bisquick mix and some shortening into a mixing bowl.

Using a fork, I blended them together until no large lumps remained.

Then I added an egg and some almond milk to the base mixture.

I used the fork again to stir until a soft dough was formed.

For spreading the sticky dough, in a greased 9×13 inch baking pan, I used a piece of plastic wrap to make it easier to spread it evenly.

When the dough was ready I put it in the preheated 375F oven for 5 minutes.

While the base was cooking I broke 15 eggs into a large mixing bowl.  I then added some almond milk, salt and pepper.

I used a wire whisk to beat the eggs until they were frothy.

At this point I dumped in all the ingredients that I had chopped up earlier and set aside.  I also added some bacon bits.

Using a large rubber spatula, I stirred the egg mixture together well.

I also prepared the topping by dumping frozen hash browns, grated marble cheese and a jar of mild chunky salsa into a medium mixing bowl.

Using a wooden spoon, I stirred the topping ingredients until all were coated with the salsa.

After 5 minutes I removed the base from the oven. It was just starting to stiffen.

Then I poured the egg mixture over top of the base and returned it to the 375F oven for 15 minutes.

At the 15 minute mark I removed the casserole from the oven and spread the topping mixture evenly over the top of the eggs.

Then I returned the casserole to the oven again for about 50-60 minutes or until it was cooked in the center and a toothpick came out clean.

This deep dish casserole can serve 8-10 people depending on what you are serving as sides.  

Consider fruit salad and cinnamon buns to complete your brunch menu.

Loaded Breakfast Casserole is bursting with flavour and goodness; covering all the food groups.  

For those diners that need an added zip of flavour make some extra salsa available on the table.
