Yield:
12 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Butter, for greasing
  • 1/2 loaf of sliced white loaf bread
  • 1 pound fresh bulk pork sausage with sage
  • 10 ounces sharp Cheddar, grated
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 large eggs, lightly beaten
Directions

Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes and spread in the bottom of a greased 9- by 13- by 2- inch casserole dish.

In a medium skillet, brown the sausage over medium heat until fully cooked and no longer pink. Remove the sausage with a slotted spoon to drain the fat. Spread the cooked sausage over the bread and top with the cheese. Then stir together the, half-and-half, dry mustard, salt and eggs. Pour this mixture over the cheese. Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

The next day, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake the covered casserole until set and slightly golden, about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the casserole to set for 15 minutes before serving.

It turned out awesome. did regular sausage and added peppers & onions item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can't put my finger on it but something was missing with the flavor. Although it was moist, I probably needed to add some spices, onion, garlic, etc. My son put some Texas Pete on his. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful recipe! My family loved it and it will be a Christmas morning tradition. My Mom wants me to make it for New Years Morning. I did make a couple of changes. Didn't have a enough half and half so I used one cup of half and half and one cup of 2% milk. I will try again without any subsitutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found this casserole excellent, very very moist. And the flavor, if you use the sage sausage as the recipe calls, is great. I din’t find it bland but if you like it saltier, try the sausage after cooking it and add more spices if you want. I made this yesterday, and baked it in the morning, for an office breakfast and everybody was asking for the recipe. Thanks Trisha. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I enjoyed this recipe! Used sourdough bread instead of country bread plus I added a little extra sage to eggs for a little extra flavor. Delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Usually Trisha's recipes are good. It smelled good, but this was not good. Too much fat. Too salty. I did not use Sausage with sage. I used Owen's regular sausage. There were little pieces of fat I could see in the sausage. Maybe that's where I went wrong? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can't believe I deleated this !! Love it and also tried it with diner style box of hashbrowns instead of bread. No nuking no grating no big machine mess. I liked the bread one also but had to try the potato version some reviewers suggested but with the quickie approach! I do not know why some reviewers bothered to trash this if you want to be nasty great just was not appropriate at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cannot believe the gripers, what is it a full moon?? You have a base, go for it, add anything your little old heart desires or take away. My family enjoyed it very much. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What exactly are her qualifications as a cook? She doesn't make anything that is new or different. In fact, she is taking classics, such as this recipe, and making them awful. Fortunately, I previewed this before I made it for houseguests. There are plenty of good breakfast casserole recipes out there. This is not one of them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Owen's Sausage has quite a bit of fat. Try Jimmy Dean's sausage. It is not near as fatty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
