Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This layered breakfast casserole has cheese, eggs, and a whole lot of hearty goodness.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and set sausage aside.
  • Using the same pan, cook mushrooms, onion, and bell peppers in olive oil until tender.
  • Spread half of the bread cubes in a 7x11 inch baking pan. Add a layer of sausage, and then a layer of vegetables over the bread. Top with half of the cheese, and then spread another layer of bread cubes over the cheese. Top with remaining cheese.
  • In a bowl, beat together the eggs, egg substitute, milk, half-and-half, and mustard. Pour the egg mixture over everything in the pan. Cover, and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • Remove the casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Bake 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
