Egg & Sausage Breakfast Casserole

22 Dec


Found this recipe on Whole Foods web site.

Hey, it ain’t exactly health food – but it sounds dee-lish!

Serves 6 to 8

This recipe is perfect for using up stale bread since its firm texture stands up to overnight soaking. A casserole stretches expensive ingredients by using them to flavor low cost ingredients so this meal is a good value when you need to feed a holiday crowd.


5 cups (1-inch) cubes sourdough or white bread
1/2 pound loose breakfast sausage, cooked (about 1 cup cooked)
1 cup spinach leaves
8 eggs
2 cups milk
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried sage
1 cup grated cheddar cheese


Layer bread, sausage and spinach in an 8-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, garlic, salt, pepper and sage then pour over contents in baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese, cover and chill for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Uncover dish and bake until cooked through and golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Set aside to let rest for 10 minutes then serve.

Nutella is an Essential Condiment

22 Dec


This stuff has been around for decades.

It is far more popular in Europe than it is here in the U.S.

For a real treat, smear some Nutella on Bay’s English Muffins.


You’ll think you are eating a fine French pastry.
