Breakfast Casserole

This year, Christmas falls on a Sunday.  This means getting to church may require altering some of your usual Christmas traditions.  But it doesn’t mean you have to toss cold cereal in front of your family.  This delicious breakfast casserole can be assembled the day before and baked in the morning while everyone gets dressed!  This hot and hearty breakfast is just the thing to fuel you and your family through the morning.

It calls for bread slices.  I sometimes use French bread and sometimes white bread.  I have yet to experiment with whole grain bread.

Breakfast Casserole
6-8 slices bread
1/2 lb. cooked bacon, ham, or sausage, chopped
1 c. shredded cheese (cheddar or cheddar/jack mix)
1 dozen eggs
1 c. sour cream
1 c. milk
2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350°.  Place bread in single layer on bottom of 9”x13” pan.  Sprinkle with bacon, ham, or sausage and cheese; set aside.

In large bowl, combine eggs, sour cream, milk, and salt; whisk together.  Pour egg mixture over bread, meat, and cheese.

The sour cream should be mixed in more thoroughly---it was
one of those days when the kids were really needy.

Bake 30 minutes.  If assembling the day before, increase baking time to about 45 minutes, or until hot all the way through.

Thanks so much for this! It was super easy to make while taking care of two little ones. I made it for our breakfast Christmas morning, and my husband had seconds and thirds! Success!
