A Reason to Get Up in the Morning

A good many years ago, I went to a pot luck dinner. All the food was great, but there was a wonderful breakfast casserole on the menu that stuck with me. The excellent cook shared her recipe with me, and today I'll share it with you.

Sausage-Egg Casserole

Cube bread to cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
1 lb sausage
(or 1/2 lb ground beef and 1/2 lb sausage)
2 c. grated cheese (I like sharp cheddar)
4 eggs
2 c. milk
3/4 t. dry mustard
1/4 t. salt
1 can crean of mushroom or cream of celery soup
1/2 c. milk
Fry up the sausage or sausage/beef mix and drain
Then beat together: eggs, 2 c. milk, dry mustard and salt.
On top of the cubed bread, spread the drained meat and then add the egg mixture.
Mix together the can of soup and 1/2 c. milk and pour over the combined goodies beneath. Top with cheese. Refrigerate over night.
In the morning, wander bleary eyed into the kitchen and pre-heat the oven to 350F. Stumble back to bed for 1 and 1/2 hours (don't forget to set your alarm and be sure you put the casserole into the oven before going back to bed). When you get up, you will have a complete breakfast with only one dish to wash. (I'm not counting the dishes from last night). This is a great Sunday brunch meal.


  1. I bet this is really good. Thanks. I'll try it.

  2. Ooo, I've had this before. It's yummy. Especially when someone else gets up early in the morning to make it. :)

  3. I love breakfast casseroles! I'll tell hubby to try this one this year (he makes one every year for a work party he attends).
