Warm and filled with tasty sausage, eggs, and cheese, this casserole will make your tummy happy.

Everyone should have a make-ahead breakfast dish in your recipe file for those mornings when you need to feed people early, but still want to spend time with those same people! We make our Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole for special times when we have company or we know we are going to be busy in the morning.This casserole can be made ahead and refrigerated overnight, then baked the next morning. Hot, fresh and delicious, it is ready in 30-40 minutes. And if you didn’t make this the night before, you can still make it in the morning. Just make it up at least a half hour before baking it so that the egg mixture has time to soak into the bread squares.

You can use your favorite bulk sausage for the casserole. You can even change the flavor of the final casserole by using a different sausage. Sometimes we like using a sage sausage and other times, like on New Year’s morning, we use a hot sausage mixed into the casserole. Pick your favorite and make this tasty sausage and egg breakfast casserole!
