Brad's Mom's Breakfast Casserole

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

This is Brad Pitt's Mom's recipe and is supposedly one of his favorite dishes. This needs to be made the night before and refrigerated overnight, which means you can't exactly whip this up if Brad drops in unexpectedly!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown sausage in a medium skillet over low heat.
  2. Drain grease and set aside to cool.
  3. Lightly beat eggs in a large bowl; add milk, mustard and salt and blend well.
  4. Stir in bread crusts, add sausage and cheese and mix well.
  5. Pour into a shallow, 2-qt glass baking dish and refrigerate overnight.
  6. The next morning, preheat oven to 350° and bake casserole for 40-45 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  7. Serve hot or at room temperature.

This was very, very good. I actually used diced ham instead of sausage, as I had the ham on hand. I also used hot dog buns instead of the bread crumbs. They worked great. This was so good, my kids just gobbled it up! Thanks so much for the great recipe. I will be making this again!

I'm sorry, this did not work for us. The soggy bread made for a really bad consistency. And I'm not sure the eggs were completely cooked either.

I made this for a brunch I catered today and it was a big hit! Everyone thought it was tasty. I used wheat bread and added a little bit of chopped onion. This was simple to make as I prepared it the night before and all I had to do was pop it in the oven the day of the event. People said it was good fresh from the oven, and also just as tasty later on when it cooled to room temp. I'll be making this again. Thanks for posting!
