And despite my blog's title, I probably have not posted a recipe for over six months. Mainly laziness on my part for that indiscretion.
It was one year ago that I started my blog, and regularly posted recipes then, so I thought I would honor that tradition with a recipe now. I also just had my husband's family over for brunch to celebrate my son's and daughter's birthdays, and I tried six new recipes out on them! They were all good, with this one being a standout from all the rest.
Country Breakfast Casserole
1 (16 oz.) package bulk sausage
1 chopped green onion
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 (2.64 oz.) package country gravy mix
5-6 slices bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 tablespoons melted butter
paprika, to taste
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 11 x 7 inch baking dish.
Brown sausage in a large skillet; drain fat.
Combine sausage with green onion and spread over bottom of prepared dish. Top with shredded cheese. Whisk together eggs, water, milk and gravy mix; pour over sausage mixture and spread evenly. Arrange bread squares evenly on top of egg mixture. Drizzle with melted butter and sprinkle with paprika.
Bake 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
