Non egg cook.
Seems like everyone has a breakfast casserole they make during the holidays. This one is really good, never tried it on the egg but I hope to soon.

It's called breakfast bread pudding! Anyone have a favorite breakfast casserole they cook on the egg?? Would love to hear some ideas.

    1. Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
    2. Brown and drain the sausage.
    3. Layer croutons on the bottom of the pan.
    4. Add a layer of cheese
    5. Layer the sausage next
    6. In a bowl, mix eggs, 2 1/2 cups of milk and mustard
    7. Pour the egg mixture over top of layers.
    8. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

  • Breakfast Bread Pudding:
    1 lb jimmy dean maple sausage 
    1/2 cup minced yellow onion
    1/3 cup dry white wine
    8 cups 1 day old French bread torn into 1 inch pieces 
    2 1/2 cups milk
    1/2 cup heavy cream 
    1/4 cup melted butter 
    8 eggs beaten
    1/2 pound Monterey Jack 
    1/2 pound mild cheddar
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper 

    I usually use 1/2 pound (8ounces) Colby Jack instead of Monterey Jack since it's not spicy and maybe a cup of cheddar

    Cook the sausage then add in the onion and cook until soft, then add white wine and cook about 2-3 minutes 
    In a large bowl add in the bread and milk and cream and stir well, let it sit for 5 minutes. pour the melted butter in 10x13 casserole dish, mix all ingredients in with the bread mixture and mix together, pour into casserole dish cover with tin foil and cook 1 hour @ 325 then cook uncovered for 15, Increase the temp to 375 and cook for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
