Servings: 8
Prep Time: 1 hour 20 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

4 slices white bread
Butter, for greasing
1 pound mixed mild and medium sausage, such as Salt Lick sausage
2 cups half-and-half
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch of pepper
Dash hot sauce
6 beaten eggs
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced, optional
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced, cooked unpeeled red potatoes
1 cup grated Cheddar
1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese





Cube the bread and place it in a lightly greased 8-by-11-by-2 inch casserole.

Fry the sausage until it is almost browned completely and drain on some paper towels. Mix the half-and-half, dry mustard, salt, pepper, hot sauce and eggs together. Layer the sausage over the bread and top with a generous layer of potatoes. If you are using mushrooms, layer them in before the potatoes. Sprinkle the cheeses on the top. Pour the beaten egg mixture over the casserole. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour to overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake the casserole until it is set and does not jiggle in the middle, 30 minutes.

I was just wondering on her strawberry jam, when you can it, do you need to boil it after you put the lid on to seal it, or does it do it on its own??? Thank you!!

This was good! I would suggest adding onions, green peppers and maybe a small bit of cumin, garlic, or paprika. Just needs a bit more depth of flavor. I will definitely make this again!

Definitely too soupy at 30 and 45 min. Maybe an hour is enough to firm it up.

My family loved this and it was very easy to make; however, it does need to bake for an hour at 350 and when you take it out, it's important to let it set about 10 minutes so it absorbs all the liquid. Otherwise, it will be soupy. You can also add some other ingredients like onion, green pepper, or tomato. I will definitely make this again!
