Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole

We live about five hours from our families, so that means our visits are at least several days at a time, which means we get to enjoy some of Mom's delicious breakfasts!
This is a great casserole she makes when we're there.

Here's the recipe she uses:

1 lb. sausage (Jimmy Dean is my favorite)
6 eggs
2 cups of milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
4 slices of bread, torn into small pieces
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Cook sausage. Drain.
In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, milk, salt, and dry mustard.
Layer bread, sausage, 1 cup of cheese, egg mixture, then the other cup of cheese in a 9x13 baking dish. Cover. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, take off the cover, place the dish in a cold oven, set temperature to 350 degrees, and bake for 45 minutes.

I put this together last night, and all I had to do this morning was put it in the oven to bake. YUMMY!
Have a great weekend. :)



  1. A friend and I were just talking about Jimmy Dean - he's our favorite, too. ;)

    You're right! this breakfast casserole is a winner... perfect thing to make for those 'special times'. I love it!!

  2. That looks SO delicious! I love easy, get-up-and-stick-em-in-the-oven-breakfasts! :)

    Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

  3. Have this same recipe except with ham, oh is it so good. We used to have it as X-mas breakfast every year at my Grandparents house...then after time when they where not here, we broke tradition.....this past X-mas I rekindled it in our house! YUM!

  4. This sounds delicious. My mouth is watering! Thanks for sharing. We eat lots of casseroles in our family too.

  5. My mother has always had small potatoes cut up in this breakfast casserole along with everything else is very awesome also.
