Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Brown the sausage in a saute pan over medium heat for 3 minutes, breaking it into bite size pieces. Add the mushrooms, bell peppers, 1 tsp salt and pepper. Cook an additional 5 minutes. Let cool. Drain.
  • 2 In a bowl, beat the eggs and milk. Add remaining salt and cheese; stir to combine.
  • 3 Add the bread cubes and cooled sausage mixture to a greased 13×9-inch baking dish. Toss to combine.
  • 4 Pour the egg mixture over the bread and sausage: press the bread mixture down gently to soak up some of the egg mixture.
  • 5 Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes; uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes. Serve immediately.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

- If desired, you could add zucchini, green peppers, yellow peppers, tomatoes. - I recommend washing mushrooms before slicing; canned mushrooms are a great substitute. - You can use your favorite sausage. I recommend chicken apple sausage. The recipe was tested with maple pork sausage. Ground sausage or links would work nicely. - We used a 12-inch non-stick skillet for cooking the meat and vegetables - Use any milk of your preference. - Crack eggs in a separate bowl to make sure egg is okay, and you do not get any shell into the rest of your mixture. - I recommend buttering or using cooking spray on the baking dish before adding ingredients. - You can prep ingredients the day before, assemble quickly before placing in oven, if crunched for time. - To check “doneness” of the casserole, insert knife – casserole is done if knife comes out clean. - Spray foil with cooking spray before covering casserole to prevent cheese/egg sticking to foil. - Casserole can go directly from the oven to the table – does not need to “set up.”
