Total Time

In Clarksville, Tennessee, Bonnie Coffman starts this convenient casserole with a simple bread base. Then she adds cheese, eggs and succulent sausage to create a satisfying sunrise meal.


  • 6 slices bread, crusts removed
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half cream
  • Pinch pepper


  1. Place bread in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish; set aside. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in mustard. Sprinkle sausage and cheese evenly over bread.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, cream and pepper. Pour over cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve immediately.
