Sausage And Waffle Breakfast Casserole

I recently had one of my oldest and dearest friends come to visit. This was her first visit since I started the blog. She was very patient, and I think amused, at all of the food photography that went on. We joked that she was going to develop a Pavlov response which associated a camera shutter going off with food being served. We had this waffle casserole one morning for breakfast.

Sausage And Waffle Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients:

1 lb bulk pork sausage
6 frozen waffles, toasted and cubed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs
2 cups skim milk
1 tsp powdered mustard
1/8 tsp black pepper
Maple syrup to serve

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350℉.

2. In a large skillet, cook sausage until browned. Drain off fat.

3. Arrange half of the waffle cubes in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Top with half of sausage and about 1/3 cup cheese. Repeat layers.

4. In a large bowl, beat eggs and stir in milk, mustard and pepper. Pour over the layers in the baking dish. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours. (I totally forgot about chilling the dish and wanted to eat it that morning, so I just put it in the oven. It tasted great. It was soft and yummy anyway.)

5. Uncover and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Let stand for 10 minutes. Serve with maple syrup.

Serves 8

    Trying this over the weekend! A lot like my mother’s breakfast casserole, but with waffles instead of bread chunks. Should be a yummy twist on a family classic!

    Mighty tasty and super easy – just what you want on a too-early morning (Christmas, New Years, Easter, etc.).

    I would recommend tearing the waffles into largish chunks rather than cubing – keeps the fun factor higher for the kids. Could also try varying the sausage for different flavors. I have a bunch of chicken & apple sausage that I just made up that I think I will try next time. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
