Breakfast Casserole

Last night there was a terrible storm that went ripping through our neck of the woods. We woke this morning to find some huge tree limbs in the backyard. As usual, every member of the family slept through it except me. I was up early - so I decided to make the sleepy heads some breakfast. My step-mother has made this recipe before but I never did until today.

Breakfast Casserole
6 slices bread, cubed
1 pound sausage, browned and drained (I added chopped onion)
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
8 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste

Cube bread and place evenly in greased 9x13 pan or baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with sausage and cheese. Mix eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over ingredients in pan. (May cover and chill overnight - if you do this remove from fridge 15 minutes before baking.) Bake 45 minutes at 325 degrees or until set. Cut in squares to serve.
Serves 8 - 10.

My husband loved this. Good thing - he's having it for dinner, as we are going to play Lazer Tag with the youth group!


  1. I make this on a regular basis - usually for Sunday brunch at church, but always if we have guests. It is certainly a family favorite! A big bonus - It's so DARN easy to make!!

  2. Mmm- thanks for reminding me of this one. I am going to get the sausage out of the freezer before I go to bed tonight. We are going to the later service tomorrow morning, so I will have time to do this for once.

  3. I've never had a breakfast casserole that I have liked, b ut this one sounds DELISH! Sunday I h ad planned on making Sausage Gravy and Biscuits, but I am changing it to this!


Awaiting your words......
