Jimmy Dean Breakfast Casserole
What You Need
1 package regular flavor Jimmy Dean pork sausage, cooked crumbled, and drained
10 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups milk
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
6 cups cubed bread
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced (optional)
1 medium tomato, chopped (optional)
1/2 cup green onions, sliced (optional)
Preheat oven to 325°
In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, mustard, and salt. Distribute half the bread in a buttered 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with half the pepper, half the cheese, half the sausage, and half of each optional ingredient. Repeat layering using remaining bread, pepper, cheese, sausage, and optional ingredients. Pour egg mixture evenly over casserole. Bake uncovered for 55 – 60 minutes, or until eggs are set. Tent with foil if top begins to brown too quickly. Makes 6 servings.
Note: Can be made the night before and refrigerated before baking.
