I was really pleased with this. I made it on New Year's morning for my husband and I. We used day-old french bread and halved the recipe, baking in a round dish about 8 inches across. I used parmesan and mozzarella cheese and breakfast sausage. It set really well in about 30 minutes and the cheese was nice and bubbly. The bread made a surprisingly nice base and the seasonings in the egg were just right, tasty but not overwhelming. Wouldn't change a thing, although garlic and onions would be a nice touch. Halving this was perfect for the two of us (we didn't have anything else with it) so unless you're doing a few other things for breakfast you might find a whole dish is not enough for 8 people.
This was a really easy recipe ,and the taste of it was excellent. I like it because now my husband can heat up a slice of it in the morning without me having to get up and fix him something. The only thing I didn't do was allow the recipe to chill for eigth hours. I imediately put it in the oven and the recipe still turned out great.
I made this recipe in advance and froze it like you sugested.It turned out great. The recipe held up to the freezing and thawing with out affecting the quality . A make ahead recipe like this is an easy way to cut down on your time in the kitchen when you're having friends for the weekend. We all loved it. I added finely chopped garlic and onion to the sausage while it was cooking.they added a nice touch. Thanks for postong this one!!! J.C.
Very nice. I went with a whole wheat french bread and it was very tasty. Upon making again I would up the salt, pepper, dry mustard and Worcestershire. Thank you.
I was looking for an old breakfast casserole recipe and I think I found it! I had always used day-old white bread but since I don't buy that anymore, I bought a loaf of French bread and used that. Such an easy recipe and always good leftover. (I used to put this together Christmas Eve night so that we could have a good, complete breakfast with no effort on MY part!)
I served this at a work breakfast this morning. One lady said it was "the best breakfast casserole she had ever tasted" - and she is right - it was delicious. I took your advise and used rustic, crusty bread and I think that it really added a great deal of flavor and texture. Thanks for sharing this one MaryMc - I'm sharing the link with my coworkers. P.S. Back to review this again - I have made this again and will save this a my favorite recipe for breakfast! Please note that this can be enlarged or reduced based on 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk per cup of bread. Seasonings are personal - throw in what tastes good to you - I sprinkled in some garlic powder, thyme and added some diced green pepper. Yum!! MaryMc - you have a winner here :)
Oh so good! I used a fat loaf of french bread and just ripped it into pieces, and followed the recipe exactly and everyone loved it! Thank you for a very good Christmas breakfast, oh I served with fresh fruit and toast, YUM!
I followed the recipe except for a couple things. I added some chopped red onion on top of the bread with the cheese and sausage and I also added some cayenne pepper to the egg mixture. I also intended to make this the night before but didn't get to make it till the morning of so I only got to chill it for a couple hours before having to cook it before company was to arrive. Not sure what difference chilling it longer would have made but it turned out very tasty.
We had this for Sunday breakfast and it was delicious! I used breakfast sausage and rustic bread and this was the best breakfast we've ever had! Just delicious!
This was a very tasty recipe. Will make again. Thanks for posting.
