Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
- 1 pound sausage, cooked and drained
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 5 slices bread, crumbled
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard (found in the spice section)
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Brown the sausage. Break the bread apart into small pieces. Mix all the ingredients together.
Pour mixture into a greased 9X13 casserole dish. You can do this two ways: Mix all the ingredients together including the eggs and then pour it into the casserole dish. Or, you can place all the dry ingredients in the casserole dish and then pour the egg/milk mixture on top. It really doesn’t matter.
Bake in oven at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes.
Your family is sure to love this breakfast casserole made with sausage. It’s a winner for sure. This sausage casserole is one of my family’s favorite breakfasts.
