My Connecticut neighbour, Diane Keleher, gave me this recipe. It’s one of those ‘wife saver’ recipes that allow everyone to enjoy the morning. My son likes adding in a scoop of ‘nduja to bump up the heat. ‘Nduja is spreadable sausage mixed with Calabrian chiles. If you like salumi and heat – you’re going to love ‘nduja.
- 1 ½ pounds of bulk pork sausage
- 9 eggs, slightly beaten
- 3 cups milk
- 1 ½ tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 slices white bread cut into ½ cubes
- 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese, grated
Brown sausage in skillet and drain well.
Mix eggs, milk, mustard and salt (pepper if you want it, too) in a large bowl.
Stir in bread cubes, sausage, and cheese.
Pour into a greased 9 x 13 casserole dish.
Refrigerate overnight or freeze for later use.
Bake covered at 350 degrees for one hour (longer if frozen).
If you want, give the uncovered casserole a minute or two under the broiler to add some nice colour.
Serves, well, at my house about six people.
Slice and serve while someone else tops up the mimosas!
