This is perfect for a weekend family breakfast because it can be prepared the night before and then popped into the oven in the morning.
- 6 slices white bread, torn into pieces
- 1 lb bulk pork sausage, cooked and drained
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 6 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan; place bread in the bottom and sprinkle with sausage and cheese.
- Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper with a whisk; pour over the bread mixture.
- Bake 40-45 minutes or until eggs are set in the center and lightly browned.
A tried-and-true recipe that you can modify so many different ways! Many people know this as "Overnight Sausage-Egg Cassserole" because it is very easy to assemble it the night before, cover it with saran wrap, and then bake it in the morning. You can also bake it right away, as directed. It turns out perfectly just as written, but I like to use Jimmy Dean Low-Fat Sausage and different cheeses (swiss, fontina) to make it a bit more elegant. If you have leftovers, just microwave individual squares (LOW heat) for a quick breakfast.
Not giving stars, since I strayed from the recipe. I used a pound of bacon and didn't have bread, so used english muffins. The muffins turned soggy, so I wouldn't do that again. I have made this before with buttered bread, and half/half rather than milk. That recipe requires the casserole to sit in the fridge overnight. Since I was looking for quick and easy, thought I'd try this. I prefer the richer version, but this was good in a pinch. thanks so much
We loved it! I doubled the recipe and added mushrooms, sauteed onions and red pepper. I added green onions at the very end, having learned on another recipe not to add them earlier if I don't want to end up with green eggs! It took about an hour to cook. Perfect for Christmas morning. Thank you Hey Jude!
