12 Days of Christmas: A Recipe


This recipe is one I have made countless times.  It's super easy because you can make it the night before and refrigerate over night.  When you get up in the morning just pop it in the oven while the kiddos are opening presents.  It's also got all the fixings of a great breakfast: eggs, sausage, cheese, bread.  All that's missing is some pancakes and if you are thinking you need those, too then I highly recommend these.  I made them this weekend and they are divine!

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole





Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 slices white bread, toasted and cut into cubes
  • 8 ounces mild Cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions

  1. Crumble sausage into a medium skillet. Cook over medium heat until evenly brown; drain.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together mustard powder, salt, eggs and milk. Add the sausage, bread cubes, and cheese, and stir to coat evenly. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours, or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Cover, and bake 45 to 60 minutes. Uncover, and reduce temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until set.
