Grandma made this egg casserole for Easter Brunch at Hephatha Lutheran Church. It was so popular, she shared it with Grammy White and it was featured as “the egg dish” at the infamous White Family Christmas Brunch. Put together the night before, this is a great “family over for breakfast” dish. Well, this and one of Uncle Neil’s pancakes.
3 cups light cream or whole milk
10 slices quality white bread (remove crust and cube)
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 tablespoons chopped onion (fine)
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 lb. mild sausage
The day before:
Brown meat and crumble and drain. Beat eggs and add mustard, milk, salt and onion. Mix well and add sausage and cheese.
Place bread in a well buttered 9 x 13 casserole dish. Pour mixture over bread and let stand overnight.
The next day:
Take the casserole out of the fridge. Preheat the oven to 350º. 30 minutes later, bake the casserole for 45 minutes or until just set in the middle.
