Breakfast, Main Dish

Sausage & Egg Casserole

This is a delicious breakfast casserole that we had for Easter brunch. It is an overnight casserole, mix together the night before, cover, refrigerate, and bake in the morning. I mixed it together early in the morning and baked it about 5 hours later, worked beautifully. We also ate the leftovers for dinner, definitely can be an anytime meal. It combines so many of my favorite foods, sausage, cheese, bread and eggs, of course I would eat it anytime.

Sausage & Egg Casserole 1 Sausage & Egg Casserole 2

1 lb pork sausage (I use turkey sausage)
6 large eggs
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground dry mustard
6 slices white bread, cut into 1/2″ cubes
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese*

In a skillet, brown and crumble sausage; drain and set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs; add milk, salt and mustard. Stir in bread cubes, cheese and sausage. Pour into a greased 11×7-in. (or 9″x9″) baking dish. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. *I sprinkled more cheese on top during baking with about 10 minutes remaining.
