I had this at my sister-in-law's house over the holidays. Absolutely rich and wonderful.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Trim and discard rind from top of Brie.
  2. Cut cheese into cubes; set aside.
  3. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain sausage well.
  4. Cut crusts from bread slices; place crusts evenly in the bottom of a lightly greased 13x9 baking dish.
  5. Layer evenly with bread slices, sausage, Brie, and grated Parmesan cheese.
  6. Whisk together 5 eggs, 2 cups whipping cream, and next 3 ingredients; pour evenly over cheeses.
  7. Cover and chill 8 hours.
  8. (I chill it overnight, so longer than 8 hours doesn't seem to hurt it.) Whisk together remaining 2 eggs and remaining 1 cup whipping cream; pour evenly over chilled mixture.
  9. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until casserole is set.
  10. Yield 8-10 servings.

I put this together in the morning and baked it this evening for dinner, it is so tasty! I was actually pleasantly surprised because I wasn't sure what it would taste like. The custard was so silky, almost dessert like, but savory. I will definitely make it for my family for breakfast when they come visit. Thank you for sharing this wonderfully rich recipe!

This was savory, rich and sinful. A nice change from the typical breakfast casserole. Delicious!!

I made this about 5 years ago, and it was probably one of the best breakfast casseroles I ever had. You can garnish it with a little chopped green onions and fresh Parmesan cheese too. YUM!
