Ready in 1 hour 15 minutes
Prepare this delicious dish the night before your brunch. Allow it to sit overnight, and pop it into the oven 45 minutes before your guests are set to arrive.
"Delicious, quick and easy. I used Jimmy dean turkey bits. They're Pre-cooked, so you can skip the first step all together. I would definitely add other spices next time to give it a little more flavor; like possibly some Italian seasonings. Plus I made it the day of and didn't let it sit-it was just as good. "
Brown the sausage in a skillet over medium heat, stirring to crumble. Remove from heat, drain fat and set aside to cool.
Lightly spray a large baking dish with cooking spray. Place bread pieces in the bottom of the dish. Layer the sausage over the bread and top with Monterrey Jack cheese. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper and pour into baking dish over the sausage and bread.
Top with cheddar cheese, cover dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, heat oven to 325 degrees. Remove plastic wrap from dish and bake casserole 40-45 minutes or until cooked through.

raiekomailynn 3y agoSounds amazing I have to try this
reneepelkey 4y agogreat but I made changes. I added crimini mushrooms and dived onions to the mix. cooking time was way off. I cooked it for an hour but it was still raw. Because I had company waiting to eat I microwaved it for 5 min and that made it perfect.
