Sunday funday: Family Tradition

breakfast casseroleHamrick Family Breakfast Casserole- Christmas morning tradition.

I love the holidays- Roadtripping to visit family and friends and of course eat. I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes with y'all today: The Hamrick Family Breakfast Casserole.  This dish is the staple for any Hamrick Family Christmas morning. My grandmother and grandfather created the recipe many years ago and it has been a family favorite as long as I can remember.   Safe travels and Happy Holidays!

1lb. of sausage

5 slices trimmed bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

2 c. 8oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese

7 eggs, well beaten

2-1/4 c. milk

3/4 tsp. dry mustard

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

Crumble sausage in skillet; cook until brown. Drain excess grease. Spread bread cubes in a buttered 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish.  Tip with sausage then cheese.  Combine eggs, milk, dry mustard, salt, and pepper; beat well.  Cover and chill overnight. Remove cover and bake at 350 degrees F. for 35 to 40 minutes.  The finished dish will have puffed up and started to brown (6 to 8 servings).   *This is great as a veggie casserole too.  We've used spinach and mushrooms as well as onions and tomatoes as meat substitutes.

Happy Holidays!
