RECIPE: Breakfast Casserole

annova914June 5, 2008

Just served this casserole this morning to overnight guests. I made it yesterday afternoon and popped it into the oven this morning. I love recipes I can make in advance so that I can spend time visiting with our guests and not slaving away in the kitchen :) Ann

Breakfast Casserole

(This can be made the night before)

¾ cup Bisquick

1 lb sausage, crumbled , cooked & drained

6 eggs

Freshly ground black pepper

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

1-1/2 cups milk

1 cup mushroom pieces

2 cups grated sharp cheddar

1-2 Tbsps minced green and/or red bell pepper (optional)

Sprinkle of garlic powder (optional)

Grease a 9" x 13" pan and sprinkle Bisquick on the bottom. Spread the cooked sausage over Bisquick. Mix eggs and black pepper in bowl; add milk and then whisk in mustard (be sure mustard is blended evenly) ; add mushroom pieces. Add grated cheese last. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.

(this casserole does not need salt IMO as itÂs already salty from the cheese & sausage--I used turkey sausage and sprinkled a pinch of cayenne over the sausage as it was cooking).

So the Bisquick makes a bit of a crust on the bottom? This one sounds good.

Yes - and by using less than a cup, you don't get a thick crust...but just enough of one. The original recipe (given to me by a co-worker years ago) called for a single packet of Bisquick but I haven't been able to find that anymore (box of Bisquick with the packets inside) so the 3/4 cup seems to be a similar amount. I've added the minced bell peppers to give it more flavor since I use turkey sausage. My friend used Jimmy Dean hot sausage and that was delicious.
