If you are planning a breakfast for a large group or simply like to make your mornings easier, try this breakfast casserole recipe. Made the night before, you can simply place this casserole in the oven in the morning and voila, breakfast is ready! This recipe is perfect to scale to suit your needs- make it bigger or smaller depending on how many people you need to feed. Packed with eggs, sausage and hearty bread, it truly is a full meal in a dish- now all you need is the coffee!
Add some sautéed spinach or fresh sliced tomatoes into the casserole for some nice breakfast veggies. Simply mix them in to the pan along with the cooked sausage.
Any type of crusty bread will work in this recipe. In fact, this is a great way to use stale bread you might have around the house!
Monterey Jack or parmesan cheese will work well in this casserole too. Try a mix of cheeses for even more flavor!
Slice the bread into cubes, about 1 inch by one inch, and place in a greased loaf pan or casserole dish.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, pepper, dry ground mustard and salt. Make sure the eggs are completely broken up and the batter is nicely mixed.
