Breakfast Casserole...A Family Tradition.

Friday, October 7, 2011

I thought I'd share a recipe that years ago became a family tradition in our home. Many of you may already have this recipe, but I thought it was definitely worth sharing on my blog in the event you don't have this one.

Here are the ingredients you'll need:

1 lb. sausage, cooked, drained and crumbled
6 slices bread, crusts removed (white or wheat bread will work)
3 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 c. grated Cheddar cheese
5 eggs
2 c. Half/Half
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard (optional)


Directions:

1. Thoroughly cook and brown the sausage.

2. While the sausage is cooking, lay your bread out in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.  You can remove the crust if you like or not...either way is fine.

3. Butter your bread.

4. Drain your sausage.

5. Sprinkle cooked, drained sausage over the buttered bread.  Thoroughly cover the bread.

6. Top  with cheese.


Combine the remaining ingredients together...


Beat together until blended well.

Pour over sausage mixture.

Spread well using your spatula.

Cover with foil and chill overnight.

When you wake in the morning, set the oven to 350 degrees and allow the dish to bake for 40 to 50 minutes.  This recipe yields 8 servings.


Tip:  I usually take the foil off the last 5 minutes and let it finish baking the top real well before taking it out of the oven.
