Making this egg bake saves me so much time in the morning, for at least three days. I typically will have a piece of toast or some fried potatoes to go with the egg bake.
The casserole can also be prepared the day before baking. If preparing it the night before, cover it with foil or store in an airtight container, then place the casserole in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake it.
By the way, the recipe takes no time to make. Brown the sausage and drain any excess oil from the plan. Then, whisk the eggs and milk, then mix in the cheese.
Then pour into a greased pyrex dish. (All you have to do is spray the dish with cooking spray.) Cover the dish with foil and bake it in the oven for 45 minutes.
Okay, so I know what your thinking… No potatoes or bread added to the egg bake? Am I right? Well, I don’t really fancy the extra starch in my egg bake so I’ve never added it when I’ve made it.
There is never an issue with the ingredients binding without the addition of starch. If you prefer a thicker and fluffier egg bake, just add a few more eggs and more milk.
Once you remove the casserole from the oven, there will be excess oil from the sausage on top of the egg bake. This is completely normal since this dish is made with sausage and cheese.
While the egg bake is still hot, blot the excess oil with a paper towel. Then cut the egg bake and desired and serve! This is dish is also great for a brunch or anytime that you are serving guests.
