I think the name comes from having to wait a least 8 hours to dig into it. Enjoy!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This simple casserole is great if you're having houseguests. It's prepared the night before so you just have to pop it in the oven in the morning. The basic casserole is delicious and bakes perfectly. For testing purposes, we stuck with the basic recipe, but you could really have some fun with the add-in options. Your crew is going to gobble this up!

Ingredients

1 lb
breakfast sausage
6 slice
white bread, toasted and cubed
1 c
cheddar cheese, grated
8 large
eggs
2 c
milk
1 tsp
dry mustard
1 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pepper

YOU MAY CHOOSE TO ADD:

other cooked breakfast meats
onion
bell pepper
mushrooms
spinach
etc

How to Make Breakfast Awaits

Step-by-Step

  • 1Bring a large nonstick skillet to medium heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned. If you are adding any veggies (all except for spinach, if using spinach add in step 2, along with the meat mixture) to the casserole you will need to add them to the sausage about halfway through the cooking process to ensure they get a good saute.
  • 2Arrange the bread on the bottom of a well buttered 13x9 inch baking dish. Scatter the well-drained meat mixture over the bread.
  • 3Sprinkle on the cheese.
  • 4Mix the eggs, milk, dry mustard, and salt in a bowl.
  • 5Pour over the bread and meat mixture.
  • 6Seal the baking dish with foil and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
  • 7When ready to bake, remove from the refrigerator leaving the foil on and set on the counter for no more then half hour to allow the pan to get to a slight room temperature.
  • 8Bake covered with foil at 350 degrees for 40 min.
  • 9Uncover and bake for an additional 12-15 min until the top is golden. Enjoy!
