Easy Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole

Easy Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole

Every Christmas Eve for approximately 20 years, I have made "Breakfast Casserole". Then early Christmas mornings it was popped in the oven & baked while my sons opened their Santa's gifts. When the presents were all opened, a delicious hot breakfast was ready to eat.

One year I was planning our Christmas Menu, and mentioned that I might not prepare "Breakfast Casserole" and both sons exclaimed ....it would not be Christmas without "Breakfast Casserole".

A Welch tradition was born... "Christmas Breakfast Casserole"

Breakfast Casserole Recipe:

  • 6-8 slices buttered bread with edges trimmed
  • 2 lbs TN Pride Sausage (1 hot & 1 mild flavor)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 medium bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups finely shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 cups half & half cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Breakfast Casserole Directions:

  • Place trimmed buttered bread with buttered side down in a 9x13x2 inch baking pan.

  • In a large skillet cook sausage with onion and bell pepper.

  • Crumble the sausage with a fork while browning.

  • DRAIN ALL FAT!

  • Pour sausage mixture over the bread.

  • Sprinkle cheese over the sausage.

  • Beat eggs with the half & half cream, salt and pepper.

  • Pour over the cheese layer.

  • Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.

  • Next AM uncover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.


ENJOY!

I Make This Every Christmas Morning Too!

I only use one pound of sausage and I take it out of the casing to fry it so it crumbles nicely. This is so delicious and it comes out of the oven a beautiful golden brown... love it.
