A fabulous recipe! My family and I host an annual Christmas Brunch the Saturday before Christmas Day. We make three batches of this, and it always disappears.It seems like everybody loves this. If you want a spicier dish, try adding 1 (4oz) can of green chilis and/ or 1/3 tsp red pepper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brush or dip the bread in butter and layer in the bottom of a greased 9" x 13" or larger baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle cheese, green onions, mushrooms, and sausage over top of the bread.
  3. Beat eggs, milk, and half and half, together with salt and mustard.
  4. Pour over the mixture in the baking dish.
  5. Refrigerate overnight.
  6. Bake 45 minutes, uncovered, at 325 degrees. (Baking two at a time usually takes closer to 60 minutes.).

This was really yummy! I liked how easy it was to prepare. I went right by the directions, with the exception that I used only 1/2 cup melted butter. I brushed it on both sides of the bread until I had used it all, and it seemed to be plenty. I used a slightly larger dish than a 9x13" to be able to get all 8 slices of bread in the dish. I browned the sausage and sauteed the mushrooms earlier in the day, then finished preparing it before bedtime. Thanks for posting!
