Recipe: Easy Breakfast Casserole

Company comin’ over for the weekend?  Need an easy recipe for a breakfast dish that feeds several folks?  Here ya go!  Prepare the night before, wake up and shuffle to the kitchen, throw it in the oven and 30 minutes later – Viola!  You’re the queen of the castle.  I serve with sweet rolls, fruit, juice, milk and coffee.  Sometimes I make cheese grits for a side dish.  Ya’ll enjoy!

8 Eggs, slightly beaten
1 lb. sausage, cooked and crumbled (or you can substitute bacon, but I like mixing 1/2 regular and 1/2 hot sausage)
1 Cup cheddar cheese, grated
6 slices bread, cubed
2 Cups milk
¼ tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard

Mix all ingredients and place in buttered casserole dish. Refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes and serve.

    I’ve made a different variation on this before – used bacon, can of ortega green chiles (mild), (instead of bread)6 corn tortillas (torn into bite-size pieces), can of Green Giant corn niblets. If you like it spicier, you can add in a handful of finely chopped serrano peppers. You still let the whole thing soak overnight then back as usual. I reserved some bacon and sprinkled it on top before serving. You can serve this with salsa or homemade pico de gallo. SO GOOD!
