Glückliches Neues Jahr! Happy New Year!
Over New Year’s Eve I worked at a client’s ranch outside of Austin and they had some of their German relatives in town for the holidays. In preparing what to cook for some German folk I decided on some Texas staples! Prime Rib, gourmet potatoes, breakfast tacos and a little sausage and egg breakfast casserole.
What’s not to love? Sausage… yum. Cheese… yum. Bread… yum. Eggs… yum.
All the goods baked into a yummy casserole.
This was a hit with the Germans. One of the girls said it was a refreshing change from bread, butter and cucumbers for breakfast.
Even though the holidays may officially be over, this is a great casserole for a weekend or to make at the beginning of the week for quick a quick breakfast.
Ingredients: makes one casserole
4-6 slices pepperidge farm white sandwich bread
1 pound breakfast sausage
1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups milk
Salt and pepper
Start by browning the sausage in a pan. Cut the bread into one inch cubes. Crack eggs and whisk with milk and season with salt and pepper.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a 9 x 13 in baking dish layer the bottom of the pan with bread cubes. Add a layer of sausage, then cheese. Add another layer of bread, sausage and cheese. Then pour the egg and milk mixture evenly over the top.
Bake the casserole uncovered for 25-30 minutes.
