My mother-in-law made me this breakfast casserole years ago and it's my go-to favorite. I love all breakfast casseroles but I continue to come back to this one because it's so simple, you make it the night before and it just really tastes the best. I love it. Here's my disclaimer though...the photos you see here are from Christmas morning brunch. As you can imagine, Christmas morning with two toddlers is not the most ideal time to snap pictures of food that everyone is so hungry to eat. Therefore, excuse the mediocre photo...and excuse the disposable pan...it was Christmas morning...I should get major points for just remembering to take a picture of it before we ate it all.
1 package Owen's sausage, the Sage flavored is my favorite!
1 box Texas Toast croutons (I use the Caesar flavored ones)
6 eggs beaten
2 cups milk
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 tablespoon mustard powder
2 cups cheddar cheese, divided
Brown sausage over medium-high heat until cooked through and crumbled. Meanwhile, combine eggs, milk, soup, mustard and one cup of cheese in a bowl. In a 9x13 inch pan, layer cooked sausage across bottom, then layer your box of croutons. Next, pour egg mixture over. Finally, top with remaining one cup of cheese. Cover and refrigerate over night.
The next morning, bake casserole uncovered in a 350 degree oven for one hour.
So simple, right?! And who says this has to be just for breakfast? I could totally eat this as a weekday supper. Enjoy!
My man Smith on Christmas morning. This is the "where is my breakfast" look. :)
