I got this recipe from the Cooking in the West with WAASCOE cookbook. It has been a family favorite for years now. My daughter looks forward to Christmas knowing that this will be served for breakfast. It is good anytime of the year though. I hope it becomes a family favorite of yours also.
- 12 eggs
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1 cup cream of mushroom soup
- 1 cup drained sliced mushrooms
- 6 slices bread
- 1 lb bulk sausage, crumbled,fried and cooled
- 1 cup grated cheese
- salt and pepper
- Beat eggs, milk and soup.
- Add mushrooms.
- Spray or grease a 9x13 inch pan.
- Remove crust from bread, butter bread slices and then place butter side down in bottom of pan.
- Pour egg mixture over the bread slices.
- Top with sausage.
- Sprinkle with cheese.
- Refridgerate overnight.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min or until done in middle when tested with knife.
- I use homemade french bread that I made in the bread machine with this recipe.
- I also just put the whole can of mushroom soup in and use a little more cheese than it calls for.
- We do love the cheese!
This was delicious. Instead of canned mushrooms, I sauteed some and I also added sauteed onions. Took to church for Easter lunch. DH and visiting priest thought it was wonderful. Definitely worth trying, especially for a crowd.
I made this today for my Pampered Chef brunch. (I was afraid if I had a big turnout I wouldn't have enough food.) I was a little concerned when I took it out of the oven after 45 minutes. It looked like it might be overdone. The cheese on the top had gotten quite brown. I was however pleased that the dish wasn't dried out. It had a good flavor. I'm not downgrading the recipe because 45 minutes may just be too long for my oven. If I hadn't had company when it was cooking I would have been keeping a closer eye on the dish. I think the next time I make it I will start checking it at 30 minutes and only bake it until the eggs are set. It really isn't necessary to bake it beyond the eggs being done since everything but the eggs and cheese has already been cooked and technically the other ingredients just need to get hot and blended with the eggs and the cheese just needs to be melted. I would also suggest that you might want to reserve a little of the cheese to sprinkle on the dish the last 5 minutes so that it just melts and will give a softer topping. It had a good flavor and I will make it again.
I always look forward to eating this on Christmas morning!
