Introduction: Sausage, Egg and Cheese Bake

About: I think my interests tell a lot about me, I'm a multimedia artist which means I work in whatever medium grabs my attention, paint on canvas is very relaxing and acrylic paint can be mixed with paper to make ...

The hardest part of this dish is figuring out what to call it ! It's like a quiche that fell into bread pudding.

 I'm used to cooking for a large hungry family, but they have all grown and moved on so I'm trying to cook smaller portions but this is still a large dish that will feed me for 3-4 days

Step 1: Ingredients

sausage, I'm using hot breakfast sausage but you can use plain or any you like
eggs, 4 in my case
can of cheddar soup
 milk
 green peppers
 onions
 cheese, I''m using velveeta and sliced cheddar. sorry they were to shy for the pic
 Bread, I'm using 4 day old sandwich rolls but any substantial bread you can cube will work ( I don't recommend white sandwich bread but it "could" be used)

 This will be enough for a medium sized casserole dish for a larger 9x12 dish I would double the eggs, soup and milk and add a couple more rolls

Step 2: Sausage

brown your sausage, peppers and onions in a skillet until the meat has lost its pink color, drain and allow to cool slightly.
 While the sausage is cooking and cooling do the next 3 steps

Step 3: Cube It

cut your bread of choice into smallish cubes, you need enough to loosely fill your casserole or other oven safe dish

Step 4: Custards Next Stand

eggs and milk is a basic custard, here we are beating 4 eggs, 1/2 pint of milk and a can of condensed cheese soup until combined, is there such a thing as a cheese custard ? Maybe one of the trained chefs in my family can tell me

Step 5: Make It Cheesy 1

I took about an inch slice of velveeta and cubed it

Step 6: Mix It Up

take your cheese and cooled sausage mix and stir it into the cubed bread, pour the egg mixture over everything and using a fork make sure every thing is submerged. Allow it to sit for a couple minutes and then pop into a 350f oven for 40minutes

Step 7: Make It Cheesy 2

after about 30-35 minutes pull the dish out and cover the top with sliced cheese, return to the oven for 15-20 minutes

Step 8: Is It Done Yet ?

around the 45 minute point try sticking a knife in the center if the knife comes out dry your done, if not continue checking at 5 minute intervals. NOTE: because of the cheese the knife won't be clean but it won't look wet either

Step 9: Lets EAT Already !

This is a rather filling dish, I figure approximately a square of cheese worth is a portion, that can vary of course depending on the eater and if you have side dishes. This is a great brunch dish or a breakfast for dinner dish.

 NOTE: any one who knows me, knows I use ketchup/catsup/catchup on 97% of my food ESPECIALLY if its eggs. Hot Sauce is probably 99%

    Thank you Oil, I was pretty sure there was and it probably has some exotic sounding chef term!
