Breakfast Casserole from “Celebrate Fall”

I resisted looking at the latest Celebrate magazine for as long as I could stand it.  I wanted to wait until much closer to fall but I finally gave in to temptation and spend a nice evening on the sofa perusing this issue.

One recipe caught my eye immediately.  I love an easy recipe and Breakfast Casserole is certainly that.  We actually ate it for dinner instead breakfast.  I would definitely make this again and maybe even next time it will be for a morning meal instead of an evening one.

Breakfast Casserole
4 slices wheat bread, torn
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 sausage links, cooked and chopped
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
6 large eggs, beaten
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp dry mustard
Garnish:  freshly cracked black pepper, fresh thyme
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish.  Place bread pieces in dish.  Sprinkle bacon and sausage over bread pieces.  Sprinkle cheese over bacon and sausage.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and mustard; pour over cheese.  Bake until set in center, about 35 to 40 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.  Garnish if desired.
My notes:
  • I used 2% milk instead of whole milk.
  • I doubled the recipe so that I wouldn’t have to cook for a few nights.

I’m thinking that this would be perfect for Christmas morning.  There’s nothing like thinking ahead!

  2. It looks delicious! I have got the “fall” thing in me too. I want so bad to start thinking pumpkins, fall leaves, and soups.
    I will definitely try this.

    Good Morning Paula Sweetie…
    What a beautiful share today. I am definitely going to try that one for a breakfast. I think everyone would love it. A little bit of what each one of us love all thrown into one casserole. I love one dish breakfast, makes it a little easier on the cook too.

    Thank you for sharing. I may just have to invest in this magazine as well. That pie on the front sure looks delish.

    Have a gorgeous day sweet friend.

    Country hugs, Sherry

    Great recipe, Paula. I’d love this for dinner, too since I am not much of a morning eater.

    By the way, I LOVE your new blog look!

    Awhh this looks yummy! I saw this book at Walmart the other day and picked it up and thought about getting it but put it back. I think I will go back and get it now…I skimmed through it and saw several good recipes and other neat ideas that I liked.

  7. Amanda @ Serenity Now says:

    Looks delish! We have a similar casserole and we do use it on Christmas morning…it’s a tradition! 🙂 I just picked up my issue in Target the other day, but haven’t had a chance to flip through it yet. Fall is calling my name! 🙂

  8. FrouFrouBritches says:

    That looks sooo goood! YUM! I’ve never had a breakfast casserole with bacon and sausage. That rocks! I would’ve eaten it for supper too. YUM!

    The words “celebrate Fall” jumped out at me.

    Not fall HERE yet – – – stinkin’ HOT and HUMID, heat indexes in the HIGH 90’s.

    So glad I did not have to “go back to school” this week!

  10. good Lord…I’ve been reading your past 10 or 12 posts…woman, you wear me out 🙂

    These are my favorite breakfasts- we always do something like this for the holidays. YUM!

    Paula, last year we did breakfast casseroles for Christmas breakfast for my family. It was a hit. We made them the night before and let them sit in the fridge until morning. Christmas morning all I had to do was stick them in the oven. So easy! Carla

  13. Mid-Atlantic Martha says:

    Breakfast casserole is a tradition at our house for Christmas…or at least WAS a tradition — last year our DD had us for breakfast Christmas morn — so I guess the torch has been officially passed.

  14. Yummy! This looks wonderful! I’ve made something similar, but I think I’ll have to give this version a try. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  15. That magazine is just amazing! I haven’t seen the fall one yet…will look at Sams (great discounted price!).

  16. Melissa Miller says:

    Blessings, ~Melissa 🙂
