ground pork sausage
white bread sandwich slices, cubed
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
This is one of those recipes that I'll never delete from my file. I added two more slices of cubed bread just to ensure that it wouldn't be a bit soggy. The only changes I made were to add chopped parsley for a little color. And about 5 minutes before I took it out, I sprinkled Cheddar and Monterrey Jack on top to make it cheesier. This one dish pleases EVERYONE. I usually make it on a Friday night and pop it in the over on Saturday - a wonderful brunch idea.
Good. Not great but good. Probally will make again.
Big hit at our Mother's Day brunch!
WOW! I made this for Christmas breakfast and it was GREAT! I did the ham instead of pork sausage (my husband doesn't like sausage) and, to avoid not having enough flavor as mentioned by some raters, I also added about a half pound of bacon. I chopped and cooked the bacon, and once the bacon was cooked, I added the ham and cooked it with the bacon flavoring for a while. I drained it all very good and *WOW* it had great flavor. The only other thing I did different was to sprinkle chopped green onion on top which enhanced all aspects of the casserole: it smlled great while it was cooking, it looked pretty when it came out, and it tasted awesome. I just ate the leftovers which was very good... I don't know why someone said it doesn't reheat well... I micro'd it for a couple of minutes and it was fine! All in all, a great recipe, super easy, and definitely a KEEPER!
This is a really popular casserole and has been around for a long time. After eyeing it for several months, I decided to give it a try. Hubby thought it was just so-so, but I thought it was pretty good. Next time I may add some bacon along with the sausage and maybe some onions or mushrooms. Make sure you use sharp cheddar as it has a distinct flavor that goes well with sausage!! I had some company show up after lunch and they enjoyed the leftovers. Great for breakfast or brunch.
this was a really easy and delicious dish! it tastes just like a quiche filling. i made it for dinner -- so i only chilled it for about 6 hours. i used a smaller casserole dish -- used only used 4 eggs (but i easily could have added the 6 called for), about 5 slices of bread, and adjusted the milk and cheese as needed. i will definitely be making this again. it is delicious!
A gorgeous and delicious brunch casserole. I used cubed cooked Linguica sausage, and it was a nice zesty touch. I also layered it twice--bread, sausage, cheese, and then again--to vary the textures throughout, and then pressed the layers down gently after pouring the egg mixture over to make sure everything was coated. EASY!
Very good standard breakfast casserole. Using French bread or like instead of plain white sandwich bread greatly improves the texture making it very light and fluffy.
