Breakfast Casserole...Delicious


My neighbor had a lovely breakfast Saturday morning and Beachwalker Boy and I were invited. The main course consisted of a wonderful casserole among other choice items. I was so pleased when she offered the recipe. This casserole makes for a wonderful weekend breakfast or brunch and is perfect when you have a house full of guests. She had been told of the recipe by her friend from Texas who had been told of it by her friend and so on. It can, of course, be found on the Jimmy Dean Sausage Company website...but today, I will share it here with you.


Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients:
1 pkg. Regular Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage
10 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups milk
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
6 cups cubed bread
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped (optional)
1/2 cup thin-sliced green onions (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 F. In large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. In large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, mustard and salt; stir well. Distribute half the bread evenly in a buttered 9" x 13" x 2" baking dish. Sprinkle with half the pepper, half the cheese, half the sausage and half of each optional ingredient. Repeat layering using remaining bread, pepper, cheese, sausage and optional ingredients. Pour egg mixture evenly over casserole. Bake uncovered for 55-60 minutes, or until eggs are set. Tent with foil if top begins to brown too quickly.


Note:
May be assembled ahead and refrigerated up to 12 hours before baking.


Serving size:
6 servings
