Recipe: Bette’s Breakfast Casserole

"Food" seemed to be the theme at Ellis Library last week! On Thursday, the annual Diversity Event brought with it a smorgasbord of food from around the world. And on Tuesday, we celebrated our monthly Birthday Break in Technical Services. This month we recognized birthdays, welcomed a new addition to the department (Tammie Busch, Digital Services), and said farewell to Elaine Nelson and Kat Balek (both Digital services) and Jackie Blonigen (Collection Services). There was a great selection of food that day, from dips to desserts. One popular selection was Bette Stuart's breakfast casserole. Many people asked for this quick and tasty recipe, which Bette has been kind enough to share.

Breakfast Casserole

1 lb. bulk sausage (cooked, crumbled & drained)
10-12 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 box seasoned croutons
salt & pepper to taste

Cook the sausage in a skillet (may be prepared the day before and refrigerated).
To assemble casserole:
Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Spread the sausage in the bottom of the dish.  Top evenly with the cheese.
Mix eggs and milk together in a large bowl.  Carefully pour the egg/milk mixture over the sausage & cheese.  Top evenly with the croutons.
Bake at 350 preheated oven until knife inserted comes out clean (45 min. to 1 hr.).
