I woke up this morning STARVING after being sick yesterday, and this was all I could think about eating! Since we celebrate Easter, I'm planning to put the casserole in the fridge on Saturday night and cook it up for my family on Sunday.
Easy Breakfast Casserole
6 eggs, beaten
2 c. milk
6 slices bread, cubed
1 T. ground mustard
1 c. shredded cheese (plus extra for sprinkling on top)
1 lb. bulk sausage, browned & broken apart
onion salt--adjust to your liking
pepper--dash or more
Beat eggs, mustard, onion salt, pepper, and milk. Add bread, cheese, and sausage. Mix well. Refrigerate overnight.
Pour into 13 x 9 inch greased casserole dish. Sprinkle with extra cheese. Bake @ 350* for 45 minutes.
Notes: You can use any cheese. Cheddar seems to be the favorite when I make it. The carbs typically come to 11 per slice if you divide it into 12 pieces...though it depends on the bread you use. The Arnold's bread we use has 18 carbs per slice.
3/4 c. milk
2 T. melted butter/margarine (I like Smart Balance)
1 c. flour
1 T. sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
Beat eggs until fluffy.
Add milk and melted margarine.
Add dry ingredients and mix well.
Cook 1/4-1/3 cup of batter per pancake.
Notes: This is a pretty small recipe. We almost always double or triple it. Sorry, it takes too much math for me to figure out the carbs in this one! If you can figure it out, post it.
