For the month of May, I bring to you another of my Mom’s fantastical creations. This one is our Christmas morning must-have, although my hubby would prefer to have it on a more frequent basis. Like once a week, if he had his way.
It’s definitely a breakfast/brunch recipe, but I’ll admit to having it for dinner a time or two. It’s the perfect left-over and easy to reheat in the microwave. It’s great for when you have weekend guests, as you make it the day before. According to my hubby, you don’t need a reason to make this. JUST MAKE IT!
I give you…..
1 lb. sausage
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
Salt & pepper
Enough bread (any kind…sour dough works well) to cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
Brown sausage. Drain.
Line bottom of buttered pan with bread.
Cover bread with crumbled sausage
Sprinkle cheese over top.
Beat together eggs, milk, cream, salt & pepper.
Pour egg mixture over cheese/sausage.
Let stand 6 hours or (better) overnight in fridge.
Remove from fridge, let sit 1 hour before baking.
Bake at 350 about 30 minutes.
Note: I always double the sausage. Makes for a heartier dish and it’s what my hubby prefers. I use chub sausage of any kind (Jimmy Dean is always tasty). Good to use one regular and one hot to give the dish a bit of zing.
Let me know what you think! I’d love to get your feedback on this or any of the other recipes I’ve shared.
