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.
