    Breakfast casserole

    Does anyone have the recipe for the casserole you prepare the day before, leave in the refrigerator overnight, and bake and serve the next morning? It has eggs, milk, bread, cheese, sausage (optional) and seasonings. Thanks!

    Re: Breakfast casserole

    I know this one!! But I have to go home and get it... It's my family's traditional Christmas breakfast. We all come downstairs, mom puts it in the oven, we open the presents under the tree and by the time we're done with that breakfast is ready... we save the presents in the stockings for after breakfast. With such a large family it feeds us all till we're full (though I think mom may double the recipie.
    I'll see if I can find it when I get home... now I'm hungry... <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>
    have fun

    Re: Breakfast casserole

    I found these two recipes at http://www.allrecipes.com/
    Please share any recipes anyone else has. Any ideas what to substitute for sausage or ham?

    The second one looks like the one I have made before; source is "Southern Living"

    Recipe One:
    Prep Time: approx. 20 Minutes. Cook
    Time: approx. 1 Hour 30 Minutes. Ready in: approx. 9 Hours
    50 Minutes. Makes 8 servings.
    Printed from Allrecipes, Submitted by M.K. Meredith

    1 pound ground pork sausage
    1 teaspoon mustard powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    4 eggs, beaten 2 cups milk
    6 slices white bread, toasted
    and cut into cubes
    8 ounces mild Cheddar cheese, shredded

    Directions
    1 Crumble sausage into a medium skillet. Cook over medium
    heat until evenly brown; drain.
    2 In a medium bowl, mix together mustard powder, salt,
    eggs and milk. Add the sausage, bread cubes, and cheese,
    and stir to coat evenly. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch
    baking dish. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator for 8
    hours, or overnight.
    3 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    4 Cover, and bake 45 to 60 minutes. Uncover, and reduce
    temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Bake for an
    additional 30 minutes, or until set.

    Recipe Two:
    Southern Living magazine's Breakfast Casserole
    For a delightful variation, 2 cups cubed cooked ham may
    be substituted for sausage. This morning favorite was
    featured in the 1999 Recipe Hall of Fame. Original recipe
    makes 8 servings. Recipe has been scaled to make 16 servings.

    Printed from Allrecipes, Submitted by Southern Living magazine

    2 pounds ground pork sausage
    20 white bread sandwich
    slices, cubed
    4 cups shredded sharp
    Cheddar cheese 12 eggs
    4 cups milk
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons dry mustard
    1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

    Directions
    1 COOK sausage in a skillet over medium heat, stirring
    until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well.
    2 PLACE bread cubes in a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch
    baking dish; sprinkle bread evenly with cheese, and top with sausage.
    3 WHISK together eggs and remaining ingredients; pour
    evenly over sausage mixture. Cover and chill casserole for 8
    hours. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
    4 BAKE at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until set. Let
    stand 5 minutes before serving.

    Re: Breakfast casserole

    I like the idea of letting the casserole stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking. The recipe I was given uses the same ingredients as the first except for the bread. Instead of cubing toasted bread, we simply trim the crust and assemble it in two layers of bread, meat and cheese. The egg mixture is poured over the top like the second recipe. We call it Egg Strata.

    It has become a Christmas tradition with our family also. To please various palates I put fried crumbled bacon on one side, sausage on the other and a mixture in between.

    I like the middle section the best! <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    I recall using un-toasted break and not cubing it. Just laying whole slices in the casserole. I like the idea of crumbled bacon. My husband hates sausage.

    Unless you're a veg*n and prefer "naturally flavored" soy protein concetrate and wheat gluten products, I wouldn't try to substitute these. The flavor probably won't work. Just choose lower fat versions if you're minimizing animal fats.

    Re: Breakfast casserole

    So it doesn' t turn out with combinations of vegetables? I'm not a vegan, just vegetarian. The soy meat substitutes are OK, but veges would be better.

    I haven't tried it, and I'm no expert on veg*n cooking tricks. The only non-soy, non-gluten thing I've ever tasted that could satisfyingly substitute for meat in a recipe was some concoction of shiitake mushroom parts marinated in soy sauce and perhaps liquid smoke flavoring. If one doesn't feel a need for a meat flavor/texture, of course, it simply could be omitted. I've had many fine omelettes that contained no meat, and would prefer that to soy bits. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
