Sausage Brunch Casserole
This casserole is great for when you have guests or for the holidays, because you make it the day ahead and cook it the next morning. It makes for a stress free morning for the cook with her guests! The choice of cheese depends on your tolerance for heat. Prep time does not include the time spent in the refrigerator overnight.
- Ready In:
- 1hr 10mins
- 3⁄4 lb breakfast sausage
- 2 green onions, chopped finely
- 4 slices bread, with crust trimmed

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 cups cheddar cheese or 2 cups monterey jack pepper cheese, shredded
- Brown the sausage in a skillet, breaking it up into crumbles. At the end of the cooking cycle, add the green onions and cook until tender. Drain the grease from the sausage and green onions.
- Tear the bread into bite-size pieces.
- Combine the sausage/onion mixture, bread, eggs, milk, dry mustard, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and cheese in a bowl; mix well.
- Pour into a 2 1/2 quart nonstick casserole. Chill, covered for 8 to 10 hours.

MY PRIVATE NOTES
RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY
JOIN THE CONVERSATION
My DH & BIL go walking together every Sat morning & end up here for brunch (a ritual that has grown to include other family members). I try to vary the fare & be sure I have enough in case there is a crowd to feed. Recipes like this are perfect for the situation. I made my own sausage using Recipe #214213 by RECIPE ADDICT & used a shredded mix of cheddar & Gouda popular here. It was served w/buttered toast & bagels plus fruit & was enjoyed by all. Made for your Football Pool win & thx for sharing this recipe w/us.Reply
Easy, rich, and flavorful, a great idea when you need a good presentable breakfast that's set up the night before. I baked mine in a 9x13 pan, which made it fairly thin and reduced cooking time; in hindsight a 9x9 would have been a little better, but this one came out great anyway. Made as a prize for Top Favorites of 2009 cookbook forum event.Reply
This was pretty tasty. I halved the recipe as there are just 2 of us and used hot sausage for a little kick. I didn't bother taking the crusts off the bread as they don't bother me. I also used colby jack cheese. DH liked it as well and said maybe he would be making this for dinner this week :)Reply
