We love to have breakfast for dinner at our house, but instead of taking the milk and cereal or traditional pancakes or waffles, we kick it up a notch and try to make a casserole or two…. This super easy, and delicious casserole is one of my family’s favorites!
Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole Recipe
2 1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 lb. pork sausage, cooked and drained
2 c. white bread, cubed
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, milk, ground mustard, salt and pepper for 1 minute or until completely combined. Stir in the cooked sausage, bread cubes (you can use croutons for a different flavor) and cheese. Pour everything into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 12 hours.
Allow to sit at room temp for 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered for 30-40 minutes at 400 degrees. Insert a knife in the center and if it comes out clean, it’s done. Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving. We usually double the recipe because we have a larger family, but also because we enjoy having leftovers for breakfast the next morning! Cut square servings out of the leftovers and wrap them individually in plastic wrap. In the morning, put the plastic wrapped piece on a microwave safe plate and heat for approximately 60-90 seconds in the microwave. Yum!
Last time we made it, we also made homemade Cinnamon Rolls with it. Delicious!
