Breakfast Casserole

This doesn't really need an explanation. I think a lot of people have mastered their own version of the breakfast casserole. This is how I do mine...

Sausage Egg Casserole

6 slices white or sourdough bread, crusts removed (croissants are an awesome choice as well)
1 pound ground sausage
3-4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
2 cups half and half or milk
1 small onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
Italian seasonings, to taste

Brown sausage with onion and bell pepper. Add seasoning and mix well. In separate bowl whisk eggs, salt, mustard and milk. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish and line bread in pieces. Add sausage mixture on top of bread. Add cheese on top of sausage. Pour egg mixture on top. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until casserole is bubbly and lightly browned on top.

I also have a cinnamon-sugar grinder from Trader Joe's so I couldn't resist making some Cinnamon-Sugar Monkey Bread...

2 tubes grands biscuits, cut in half
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c butter

Coat the biscuits in cinnamon sugar mixture (in a bag works, if you don't have a grinder). Toss in a bundt pan or a loaf pan, buttered or sprayed. Melt butter and brown sugar together in the microwave and mix well. Drizzle on top of biscuits and bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.


  1. Yum - two of my favorites and I love having both so you get your salty and sweet fix all at once! The best part about both of these is you can mix them up the night before making it an easy breakfast after a big night.

  2. YUMMY! Will try this. Kids will love it.
