Weekend Cooking: Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole

Weekend Cooking, Cooking books, food books

This post is part of fellow book blogger, Beth Fish Reads‘, weekly meme (a “community” blog post, for all those non-bloggers out there) called Weekend Cooking.

Sometimes (i.e. if you have houseguests or are responsible for bringing a dish to a brunch) you need a breakfast dish that you can make the night before and that feeds a lot of people. Well, I needed one this past weekend, so I turned to my mother-in-law’s Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole. It’s delicious and comforting, although certainly not low-cal (but, you can indulge every once in awhile, right?!).

My Mother-in-Law’s Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole

1 lb of sausage (I used 1 package of defrosted frozen sausage, which was a little less than a pound)
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
6 slices bread (I used a country white bread)
1 cup grated cheddar

Cook sausage.  Beat eggs; add milk, salt, and mustard.  Grease baking dish (I used a Pyrex). Layer bread on the bottom, then the sausage and cheese.  Pour milk/egg mixture over.  Refrigerate overnight. Bake @ 350 for 45 min.

    How quick and easy is that? And what’s not to love about eggs, sausage and cheese. A nice recipe to have in the arsenal.

  4. That sounds great, and a perfect way to feed weekend guests. We have to convert everything to gluten free for a family member who has celiac–but this looks like it’d be easy to substitute in gluten free bread (and of course, make sure the sausage is GF).

    I’ve never tried this sort of thing. Is it essential to refrigerate it overnight? Cheers from Carole’s Chatter!

    YUM!!! My mom makes something similar for special holidays (Christmas, usually) and I love it. And yes, sometimes indulgence is alright–I mean, how did we get to consider sugar-laden pastries as breakfast food? 😉 (and yes, I love my donut just as much as the next gal…)

    I have made this for dinner a few times with left over sausages. I use puff pastry as a crust instead of bread though 🙂

      YUM- puff pastry sounds like a great improvement! I’ll give that a try next time.
