cooking group

I host cooking group once a month, which means that I need to create impressive dishes to feed my hungry amigas. It is an adventure to think of a new theme and recipes for each month. Tomorrow I am making breakfast foods including this amazing casserole my Mom made for us on Christmas and then again in New Years Day because we liked it so much!

Egg and Sausage Casserole

10 to 12 slices white bread (remove crusts and cube)
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
1 pound sausage
4 eggs
2 1/4 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk

Place bread cubes in a lighlty sprayed 9" x 13" baking dish. Top with grated cheese. Brown sausage, breaking up into small pieces. Drain. Arrange sausage over cheese. Beat eggs with 2 1/4 cups milk and dry mustard; pour over cheese. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, dilute mushroom soup with 1/2 cup milk. Pour over mixture already in pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 1/2 hour or until set.

Ridiculously good and makes for yummy leftovers. It is like a breakfast sandwich in casserole form. Yummyness.
