I love this recipe because it is really easy to fix the night before when you are having company the next morning or maybe taking it to work or something. This recipe came from the Telephone Pioneers Cookbook "Calling all Cooks."

- 1 lb sausage
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

- Sprinkle bread cubes into greased 7X12 inch baking dish.
- Cook sausage and sprinkle along with cheese over the bread cubes.
- Beat eggs in mixer bowl.

- Pour over layers.

- Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until set and golden brown.

I love anything that can be made before company arrives so this fit the bill.. i made some changes. i used 3/4 of a loaf of cubed and untoasted crusty olive oil and rosemary bread i decreased the sausage to 3/4 lb of broken up breakfast sausage and added a diced red pepper and 10 green onions, chopped, to the pan after I drained off most of the sausage fat but before the sausage was completely cooked. I completed the cooking of the sausagewith the veg for a few minutes. i increased the eggs to 10 eggs and the milk to 3 cups . my casserole pan was a bit larger than what the recipe called for. it was a success. i had 5 adults eating and not a leftover. will make it again and again. easy tasty and a bit hit.
I used this recipe last year for Christmas morning breakfast and it worked great. We always make homemade pizza for Christmas Eve and the extra "toppings" work great in this casserole - cooked bacon, sausage, ham, cooked peppers/onions (make sure they're cooked first or it will be too watery). It was great to just wake up and throw the casserole in the oven - I actually got to watch my kids open presents insted of being stuck in the kitchen. Thanks!
Not bad. I made it for a potluck and it was a big hit. Unfortunately, I didn't think it was very tasty. A bit bland.
