Hearty Breakfast Casserole
This hearty breakfast casserole is a great opportunity to be thrifty. You can purchase day-old bread, or to save even more, use any bread heels you may have frozen. Either one will taste great.
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
6 slices of white sandwich bread
1 lb hot bulk pork sausage, cooked, crumbled and drained
6 large eggs
1 pt half-and-half
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
3 cup grated Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a medium baking dish. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper; cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
Line prepared baking dish with bread. Top with onions and peppers. Spread sausage evenly over onions and peppers.
Beat eggs, half-and- half, mustard and salt in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk until smooth, about 1 minute. Pour over sausage in baking dish.
Sprinkle cheese over top. Bake until eggs are set, about 40 minutes.
Instead of Sautéing, microwave the onion and bell pepper. Place in a dish with 1 tablespoon oil. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
