Ingredients

1 pound breakfast sausage
cooked, crumbled & drained
*
10 large eggs
lightly beaten
3 cups light cream (half&half)
1 teaspoon salt
1 bunch scallions, spring or green onions
chopped
*
1 teaspoon dry mustard
16 ounces bread
day old, 8 to 10 slices
1 cup cheddar cheese
shredded
1 cup swiss cheese
shredded

Directions

  1. Generously grease a 9 x 13-inch (23 by 32cm) baking dish. Arrange the bread in the baking dish evenly. Sprinkle with two kinds of shredded cheese.

  2. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, mixing well. Pour evenly over the bread, cover and refrigerate overnight.

  3. Bake for 1 hour at 350℉ (180℃) F or until golden brown, bubbly and utterly delicious.

Allow to rest for 5 or 10 minutes before serving.

Country Breakfast Casserole for Two

Use 1/3 pound of breakfast sausage, 4 eggs 1 cup of milk + ¼ cup cream, only 4 slices of bread and 1/3 cup each of the shredded cheeses.

Reduce baking time to 45 minutes. In a smaller casserole dish, you can stack the bread slices two layers high, so we divide the cheeses and sprinkle ½ the cheese and scallions on the first layer of bread slices and then layer with the remaining bread slices sprinkled with the remaining cheese.

This is great. I have served it at two separate gatherings and everyone loves it. I use 1 lb. sage sausage and one lb. hot sausage and I use french bread.
