Christmas Breakfast Casserole Recipes
Trisha Yearwood’s Breakfast Sausage Casserole

- 10 oz sharp Cheddar, grated
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp salt

Cut the bread into one-inch cubes. Spread in the bottom of a greased 9-by-13-by-2 casserole dish.
In a medium skillet, brown the sausage over medium heat until fully cooked (and no longer pink). Remove the sausage with a slotted spoon to drain the fat. Spread the cooked sausage over the bread. Top with cheese.
Stir together half-and-half cream, dry mustard, salt, and eggs. Pour this mixture over cheese and bread. Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and refrigerate for eight hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the covered casserole until set and slightly golden (about 50 minutes). Remove from the oven and allow the casserole to set for 15 minutes before serving.
