How To Make A Breakfast Casserole

The following is a simple recipe to make a sausage and egg breakfast casserole using only 5 main ingredients. They are bread, sausage, eggs, cheese and milk. This is a great breakfast dish that kids can enjoy and can be prepared in a fairly short amount of time.


• 8 slices of bread
• 1 lb (453 g) of ground sausage
• 1 1/2 cups (180 g) cheddar cheese, shredded
• 10 large eggs
• 2 cups (500 ml) of milk
• Butter, salt and pepper

Materials needed:

• Oven-safe casserole dish
• Frying pan
• Mixing bowl


The first thing to do is to prepare the bread. Using a cutting board, take the 8 slices of bread and cut them into small cubes. You may use any type of bread based on your own preference, but ordinary white sandwich bread will do. When cutting the bread, try to get them as closely sized as possible. Afterwards, grease a large oven-safe casserole dish with butter and lay the cubed bread evenly at the bottom of it. Set this aside for the moment as you prepare the sausage.

Next, cook the sausage in the frying pan. You’re going to sauté it on medium-high heat while crumbling it in the process. Keep sautéing the sausage until it turns brown and make sure there is no uncooked or reddish meat left.

Once it’s done, take the sausage and spread it on the previously prepared bread cubes in the greased casserole dish. Spread it evenly across the bread cubes. Now take the 1 ½ cups of cheddar cheese and generously spread it as evenly as possible on the surface. Set the casserole dish aside once again.

In a mixing bowl, crack the 10 eggs and beat them. Then gradually pour the 2 cups of milk into the bowl while stirring the mixture to blend them. Once the mixture is completely blended, season it with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into the dish with the cubed bread and cooked sausage. Once again, make sure to evenly distribute the mixture into the dish. Take note that the whole procedure up to this point can be done up to one day in advance. If you do not have a lot of time in the morning to prepare this dish, you can do it the evening before and store it in the refrigerator. Then you can just take it out in the morning to bake.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit when you’re ready to bake the casserole. If you prepared it the day before, take the casserole out of the refrigerator to let the dish warm up. Cold glass and ceramic can shatter in the oven, so this is very important. When the oven is ready and the dish itself is about room temperature, put it into the oven. Bake it for about 50 to 60 minutes. Once it’s done, take it out of the oven and let it sit for a few minutes before serving to avoid splatter.

Serve it warm and enjoy the dish.
