  • 1 pound of pasta, I used cavatappi shaped pasta
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage, removed from casings and crumbled
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, discard seeds and dice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups shredded colby jack cheese
  • 2 cups pepper jack cheese
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 5 or 6 toasted breakfast biscuits, homemade or the from the refrigerated aisle of the grocery store, crumbled


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta to al dente and drain.
  • In a large pan, cook sausage, crumbling it with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Once no longer pink, remove it to a bowl with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Add onion, red pepper, and jalapeno to grease in pan and cook until softened, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Spoon onion mixture into bowl with sausage.
  • Add the butter to the pan and melt over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, until thickened. Turn heat off and add 2/3 of the cheese. Stir until melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Add pasta, and reserved sausage/onion mixture. Stir until evenly mixed. Pour into a buttered casserole dish or cast iron pan.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs together and then stir in the remaining cheese plus the crumbled biscuits. Pour this mixture on top of the mac and cheese.
  • Place in oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
