Rise and Shine! Breakfast Reigns Supreme!
I’m nearly obsessed with breakfast and it is definitely my favorite meal of the day. I never skip breakfast. Breakfast tends to be a hurried affair most days but, I love to cook and eat a large breakfast, especially on Sunday morning. There’s nothing better than a hearty breakfast! Grabbing a piece of toast and heading out the door does not work for me.
My favorite breakfast is crisp bacon, eggs over-easy, hash browns and whole wheat toast ~ topped off with a cup of strong black coffee. However, I love oatmeal with raisins or dates, cold cereals, sausage, French toast, grits, pancakes, waffles, ham, Danish pastries, fresh fruit, bagels and on and on. Oh, and casserole dishes like the one below! In other words, there’s not much I don’t like for breakfast ~ breakfast rules!
Pork Sausage Casserole
6 slices white loaf bread
1 pounds fresh bulk pork sausage with sage
10 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 green onions, chopped
5 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups half-and-half
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Cut bread into 1” cubes and spread in a greased 9 x 12 casserole.
In medium skillet, brown sausage until fully cooked, draining off rendered fat.
Spread cooked sausage over the bread and top with the cheese and onions.
Stir together eggs, half-and-half, salt and dry mustard.
Pour over the cheese and onions.
Cover casserole with foil and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
The next day, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Bake covered casserole for 50 minutes or until set and slightly golden.
Remove from oven and let casserole set for 15 minutes.
Tell me, do you love breakfast? What is your favorite breakfast?
Enjoy your breakfast! It jump-starts your day!
