Breakfast Casserole

Growing up my Mom made this Breakfast Casserole every Christmas Eve for our family to delve into Christmas morning after opening our presents. It's a family favorite, so naturally when my Mom came to visit for my birthday a few weeks ago I asked her to make this for me. I remember helping her make it as a child, but this time I really paid attention. It's really simple, requires very few ingredients, and is an excellent and filling breakfast with the meat, cheese, bread, and eggs are all baked together. Mom usually uses a roll of turkey sausage, but we couldn't find any at the grocery store and went with Jimmy Dean fully cooked sausage. It was still good, but I definitely recommend using the sausage you cook up and crumble!

Breakfast Casserole

1 lb sausage or ham, cooked, crumbled, and drained
12 eggs
4 cups of milk
1 tablespoon of dried onion
12 slices of bread with crusts removed and cubed
2 teaspoons of salt
2 teaspoons of dry mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Whip together eggs, milk, and spices. Add in meat and cheese and bread last. Pour into a greased 9 X 12 inch pan, cover with foil and let sit in the fridge overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
