Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Casserole

This is a delightful casserole
 to serve for breakfast or brunch. 
Add some fruit, maybe a toasted English muffin,
and you have breakfast. 
Add a small salad and a crusty roll
and you have brunch or lunch.
This recipe came from our Aunt Sharon.
(Debbie's aunt and Dakota's great aunt.)
She made it for some family members 
visiting her in Missouri and 
they loved it so much they passed it on.
We are glad they did. 
It has been a casserole that we have made 
for many a Christmas morning.
If you like you can make it the night before
 and refrigerate it.
Then pop it in the oven the next morning.
Start with eggs, cheese, milk, 
sausage, bread, 
and 
salt & pepper.
 Brown 1/2 pound of sausage.
Love that Mix 'N Chop tool from Pampered Chef!
 While the sausage is browning cube your bread.
You can use any kind of bread you like.
White, wheat, or mulit-grain. 
Whatever is your favorite.
Whisk your eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
 Add the drained sausage and bread cubes 
to the egg mixture.
 Grate your cheese.
Gotta love that cheese.
Add it to the mixture.
Pour into a greased casserole dish.
We use a 9x9 inch square dish or 
this cute 6 x 10 inch casserole dish.
 Bake for about 50 minutes.
Yum...look at all that cheese!

    1. We found it at Shopko! Debbie has a green one and Dakota has a purple one. You can find it in white right now on Shopko's website. It is called the "BIA Cordon Bleu Rectangular Wavy Baker."
