Easy Sausage Breakfast Casserole

This casserole is so easy and delicious.  I made it last night, put it in the fridge and then popped it in the oven this morning.  I love it for Sunday breakfast because it's the day I sleep in and making breakfast isn't part of my relaxation day.  So I prepare it on Saturday night and bake it up all yummy and delicious on Sunday morning.  I can't tell you what a hit you are going to be with your significant other when you make this breakfast!

10 eggs lightly beaten
4 cups of milk
1 lb. Mild ground Sausage, cooked and drained
4 1/2 cups of Bread cubed
2 cups Sharp Cheddar cheese
2 tsp. Parsley
2 tsp. Basil
Salt and Pepper
1/4 cup dried Onion
a sprinkle of Garlic Salt

Preheat oven to 325

In a skillet cook the sausage until no longer pink.  Drain.  In a 9x13 baking dish, spray with nonstick cooking spray, lay the cubed bread in the bottom, sprinkle the dried onion over it, sprinkle in the parsley and basil, dump in your sausage, and sprinkle with garlic salt.  Beat the 10 eggs and the pour that over the sausage.

Now if you are making this the night before, this is where you cover and put in the fridge.  Do everything except the cheese and then refrigerate over night.  Before you you put it in the oven if you are fixing it the day before, let it sit out for about 15 minutes to bring it back to room temp.

Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top, cover with aluminum foil and then bake in the oven for 1 hour.  After the hour is finished, remove the aluminum foil and bake for about 15 minutes.  When it's finished remove from oven and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!
