The combination of sausage, eggs, cheese, and bread promised a satisfying and delicious start to the day.


  • 1 (16 ounce) package Regular Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage

  • 10 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 3 cups milk

  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 6 cups cubed bread

  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)

  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped (optional)

  • 1/2 cup thin-sliced green onion (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 325 F. In large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. In large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, mustard and salt; stir well.
  • Distribute half the bread evenly in a buttered 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with half the pepper, half the cheese, half the sausage and half of each optional ingredient. Repeat layering using remaining bread, pepper, cheese, sausage and optional ingredients. Pour egg mixture evenly over casserole.
  • Bake uncovered for 55-60 minutes, or until eggs are set. Tent with foil if top begins to brown too quickly.

The recipe was straightforward and easy to follow, allowing me to quickly assemble the casserole. The aroma of the sausage sizzling in the pan filled the kitchen, awakening my appetite.

As I layered the ingredients in the casserole dish, the anticipation grew. I decided to add some mushrooms and tomatoes for an extra burst of flavor and freshness.

Once baked, the casserole emerged from the oven golden brown and bubbling. The cheese had melted into a gooey, savory layer that enveloped the hearty chunks of sausage and vegetables. The bread had soaked up the flavors, providing a delightful texture.

With each bite, I savored the combination of flavors and textures. The savory sausage provided a robust richness, complemented by the creamy eggs and melty cheese. The mushrooms and tomatoes added a pleasant earthiness and a hint of sweetness.

This breakfast casserole was a true crowd-pleaser, satisfying both my hunger and my taste buds. It was a comforting and filling dish that set a positive tone for the day ahead.
