Ingredients

  • 10 eggs
  • 1 pound maple sausage cooked, crumbled and drained
  • 1 1/4 cups colby jack cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt optional
  • 3 slices brioche bread cubed & dried
  • 2 1/4 cups milk

Instructions

  • Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan and preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl scramble eggs with a fork or whisk.
  • Stir remaining ingredients into eggs.
  • Pour in baking pan and bake for 30 - 40 minutes until center of casserole is set.

Notes

  • Make sure bread has been dried out before adding to the casserole
  • I like to dry bread by leaving out on the counter for the day, but a broiler or toaster can be used
  • If bread is not dried the casserole is more likely to be soggy
  • Scramble eggs before mixing together with other ingredients 
  • Sausage may add enough flavor so make the salt is needed before adding
  • We prefer Colby jack cheese with a more mild flavor since the brioche bread and sausage bring such distinct flavors
