what you'll need

1 lb ground sausage
5 eggs
1 tsp garlic - optional -
3 cups milk
1 tsp salt+ pepper
1.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese - reserve 1/3 cup for topping-
5 Slices of bread
i think it would be amazing with hash browns if you don’t want to use bread

how to make it

preheat oven to 340
brown sausage in skillet then drain
slice the bread into cubes I just took regular sandwich bread sliced it into thirds lengthwise then slice those thirds into thirds It goes faster if you stack the slices on top of one another using the crust is fine for me but you can remove it if you’d like
beat together eggs milk salt pepper and garlic until slightly frothy
mix in bread cubes cheese and sausagebe sure that the bread cubes are covered in the mixture
let sit for 25 minutes - I used this time to clean the kitchen -
spray a casserole dish with cooking spray then pour the mixture into the dish
sprinkle the reserved shredded cheese over the casserole
bake for 35 to 45 minutes
any casserole dish will work so long as it’s large enough to fit the mixture
if you want deep and chunky slices use a smaller casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes
or you can do what I did and use a large cookie sheet using a baking sheet spreads the mixture out thinner and makes perfectly thin slices that can be used for breakfast sandwiches I opted for this method because I knew we were going to have leftovers If you decide to use this baking method you’ll likely only need to bake for 35 minutes
the amount that it makes varies according to the size of the baking dish that you use
I was able to get 13 pieces because I used a large cookie sheet however the original breakfast casserole recipe that I adapted from says that it serves 9 to 12 so that sounds about right
