A New Twist on the Breakfast Casserole

Unknown

Today is Grandparent’s Day at my children’s school, which means a rushed morning so we make sure to have a parking space.  It is a day for a breakfast casserole to throw in the oven so I have time to get dressed myself!

I was preparing last night…I went to the fridge to get my ingredients, and of course the breakfast sausage that I had checked for before grocery shopping earlier in the day turned out to be expired!  Now what to do?  I definitely needed a meat to throw in with the eggs, and was DEFINITELY not going to the grocery store with three children at 5:00 PM.  Soooo….we are improvising!  We all love beef bar-b-que sausage which I had purchased to throw in some spaghetti sauce to serve over zucchini noodles, so what about that?  It was fresh, ready to go, and how yummy in eggs!

I did change up the recipe a tad to account for the extra grease from the sausage so here you go:

 

Bar-B-Que Beef Sausage Breakfast Casserole

1 3/4 pound Beef Sausage

10 eggs

2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

3 1/2 cups heavy cream

2 tsp ground mustartd

1 tsp salt

fresh ground pepper

 

Steps:

Cut and brown your sausage in a pan.

Spray your pyrex or ceramic baking dish with coconut oil or butter.  I like this one from Trader Joes.

Add your sausage to your greased dish.  It should line the bottom of the dish.

Sprinkle your grated cheese over your sausage.  I did the grating the old fashioned way for this one.  My kids love to serve themselves slices of this cheese while we have it out in the kitchen.

Whisk your eggs, cream, and spices together.

Once your ingredients are thoroughly mixed, pour this over your sausage and cheese.

Place saran over your unbaked casserole and let it set overnight.  Bake this for 1 hour 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until it is set in the center.  You don’t want any jiggling.

Happy Friday, Y’all!

 

Here is the outcome:

No complaints about breakfast this morning!
