Egg Casserole

Our Christmas Egg Casserole.
 It is a tradition at my parents house to have this egg casserole on Christmas morning.  My mom prepares it the night before so all she has to do is throw it in the oven when everyone wakes up.  By 7am, we've emptied out our stockings and cleared out the mountain of presents under the tree and are ready for breakfast.

However, if you take too long opening presents, get too involved with your new toy or gadget, or find yourself on a long phone conversation, you'll miss out since it goes fast at our house.   Occasionally, I've had the misfortune of walking into the kitchen to grab a slice to find it's all gone. :(

Yesterday I made a half batch for the hubby and myself, which made plenty for leftovers the next day. This casserole is traditionally made with spicy sausage, however you can use mild sausage instead like I did yesterday.   One word of caution, I wouldn't advise using the maple flavored sausage. We did that one year since the store was sold out of the mild and spicy.  It made for an interesting tasting casserole.

I hope you will enjoy this easy to prepare breakfast casserole as much as our family does. Merry Christmas!

Brown the sausage, then drain.

Pour the milky egg mixture over the bread and sausage.

Top with cheddar cheese, cover, and refrigerate until you're ready to bake it.


  1. I love these kinds of things. I'll definitely try this one. Maybe over New Year.

  2. Let me know how it goes :). After talking to my mom, she said she usually doubles the amount of bread, but it's still fine with the amount the recipe calls for. I hope you enjoy it!

  3. That was a sad, sad event, Meghan. We might need to start making a double batch when the whole family is together - it practically evaporates.

    It's funny I ran across this today - 2 years later! I had just talked to my roommate last night about making it this Friday night for Saturday morning!
