Easy Morning Breakfast Casserole
This yummy dish is straight forward and to the point!
It’s got a down home flavor my kids really like!
1 lb. Sausage
2 cups of milk
2 slices of bread
1 cup of shredded cheese
Add some chopped green peppers and chopped onions if you like, we always do!
Brown sausage and drain well. Beat eggs, and add the milk. Gently stir in the shredded cheese, sausage, and torn up bread pieces. This is the time to add the green peppers and onions if you’d like. Put it in 13 x 9 pan which has been sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate overnight.
Put it in a cold oven the next morning and Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Insert a knife in the middle to check doneness. It should come out clean. This is great with salsa.
I like to have hot buttered toast and orange juice with it.
