Breakfast Casserole

READY IN: 9hrs 55mins
Recipe by MaryMc

This recipe is from Southern Living Magazine but tweaked a bit by me. It's great for an early-morning breakfast or brunch for a crowd, because you can do most of the work ahead of time and just throw it in the oven the morning you want to serve it.

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.

  1. Cook sausage in a skillet over medium heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well.
  2. Place bread cubes in a lightly greased 9" X 13" baking pan.
  3. Sprinkle bread evenly with cheese, and top with sausage (or ham).
  4. Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, dry mustard and Worcestershire sauce and pour evenly over sausage mixture.
  5. Cover and chill casserole for 8 hours (may be frozen at this point, and thawed before cooking).
  6. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until set.
  8. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
