Sausage and Roasted Red Peppers Breakfast Casserole



This is the day which the LORD has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24


Sausage, Roasted Red Peppers and Sourdough Bread Breakfast Casserole


I made this for Sunday School Class this morning, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Larry and I both thought the texture was just right. I think I generally have a tendency to put too much bread in my breakfast casseroles. The four cups seemed to be a good quantity.

I made mine with some of Aunt Jean's yummy homemade sourdough bread. I know most grocery store bakeries also have sourdough bread, as does Cracker Barrel restaurants. Of course, you could use another bread, such as French bread, with great results, as well.

I have several recipes that I will be posting this week, which you all have waited for very patiently. One is Aunt Jean's sour dough bread recipe. We are celebrating Larry and Aunt Jean's birthdays this week-end. If I don't get the sourdough bread posted today, I'll try to get it posted tomorrow! It really tickled her that some of you requested this recipe!

Here's the breakfast casserole recipe:



Sausage, Roasted Red Peppers and Sour Dough Bread Breakfast Casserole

4 cups sourdough bread cubes
1 pound sausage, browned and drained
1 (12 ounce) jar roasted red pepper strips, cut in half (You could use a large jar of pimento, but the roasting of the peppers really gave this casserole a nice flavor.)
2 cups cheese of your choice (I used cheddar.)
1 cup cottage cheese
8 eggs
1 cup milk (I used fat-free half-and-half.)
salt and pepper, to taste (I used a teaspoon of salt and a couple of dashes of pepper.)

Coat a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Place bread cubes in prepared dish. Top with sausage, peppers and cheese.

In a food processor, process cottage cheese until smooth. Add eggs; process a few seconds. Add milk, salt and pepper; process a few seconds.

Pour egg mixture over ingredients in baking dish; cover with foil. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

When ready to cook, remove foil and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until golden brown and done.
