NANNY STEPH'S BREAKFAST CASSEROLE
6 slices of bread (white, wheat, whatever you have)
1 lb Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp Cajun Seasoning, optional
shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook sausage and crumble. Drain off the grease.
Break the bread into small pieces and place in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
Scatter the cooked sausage over the bread.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and seasoning.
Pour the egg mixture over the sausage and bread.
Top with as much shredded cheese as you like.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour. (45 minutes was perfect for me).
You could substitute bacon or ham for the sausage and use any kind of cheese you have (pepper jack would be so good). This casserole is really easy to make. It's a hearty breakfast that fills you up. Plus, it's yummy! Thanks Nanny Steph!
