I absolutely love the holidays and baking and cooking for the holidays is one of the highlights of the season for me. Christmas morning can be hectic opening presents and all the excitement of the day. Make it a little easier by making a dish you can prepare the night before and pop in the oven in the morning. Here's a savory egg dish you can prepare the night before and pop in the oven in the morning. Enjoy!
BRIE AND SAUSAGE BREAKFAST CASSEROLE
- 8 oz. brie cheese (or 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese)
- 1 lb. sage sausage
- 6 slices potato bread
- 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 7 large eggs, divided
- 3 cups whipping cream, divided
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tsp. seasoned salt
- 1 tsp. dry mustard
- Green onion, chopped, for garnish
Trim and discard rind from top of Brie. cut cheese into cubes; set aside.
Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium high heat, stirring until crumbled and no longer pink; drain well.
Cut crusts from bread slices, and place crusts evenly in bottom of a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Layer evenly with bread slices, sausage, brie, and grated Parmesan cheese.
Whisk together 5 eggs, 2 cups whipping cream, milk, seasoned salt, and mustard; pour evenly over cheeses. Cover and chill in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.
In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove casserole from oven while the oven is preheating. Whisk together remaining 2 eggs and 1 cup whipping cream; pour evenly over chilled mixture. Bake for 50 minutes, or until set. Garnish with green onions, if desired.
