Bisquick and Sausage Breakfast Casserole
I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Beth when Alex and I were first married! She'd been married a few years by that point and so she could show me the ropes of being a good cook :-) I was pregnant with my first and in my first year of teaching and I was still picking up take-out on my way home everyday! Which is also why I gained a million pounds during my pregnancy! But I digress! The point is, this was a really yummy recipe and a great break from take-out!
I made the pictured casserole for a brunch for my sister's bridal shower. You make it the night before so it is a great thing for early activities or special events when you aren't going to have a lot of time to cook the day of. I also make it for dinner sometimes because I can put it together in the morning and then I just have to bake it when dinner time rolls around. I usually just serve it with a fruit salad of sorts and it makes a really kid friendly dinner. Hope it works out for you too!
Bisquick Sausage Breakfast Casserole
1 lb. bulk pork sausage
1 cup Bisquick
1 cup shredded cheese
6 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups milk
1 tsp. dried mustard (so, I have used regular mustard in a pinch and it tasted just the same. So don't go buy a whole thing of spice just for 1 tsp!)
1/2 tsp. oregano
Salsa or green chile (optional toppings)
Cook meat. Mix with other ingredients. Pour into a 9x13 in. casserole dish. Refrigerate 4-24 hours. Bake at 350 for 1 hr. Top with salsa or green chile if desired!
