Breakfast Casserole

I have always made a standard egg casserole for Christmas morning or Saturday morning Conference and have thought it was super yummy...until I found this one! It comes from The Food Network and has a lot more flavor (The recipe only calls for 6 eggs, but I put in 12). We're not fans of a lot of spicy food in this house, so I was nervous about the spicy pork sausage, but it actually isn't very spicy at all! It is made the night before which makes it easy. The bread layer soaks up the egg and makes for a great light texture (It doesn't look or taste like bread after it is cooked).
Breakfast Casserole
12 eggs
1 cup half and half
2 Tbs. chopped green onions
1 1/2 tsp. salt
6 slices Texas Toast (Thick cut white bread)
1 pound spicy pork sausage, cooked
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Beat the eggs, half and half, green onions and salt together.
Grease a 9x13 pan.
Place the bread in the pan, breaking into pieces if necessary to fill the bottom.
Sprinkle the bread with the cooked sausage and cheese.
Pour the egg mixture over the entire pan.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 and cook for 35 minutes or until the egg mixture is set.
