Lame title, I know, but there was nothing to creative about this one.
Today I walked into Albertsons and after the sale and coupons, I received 9 (one pound each) rolls of sausage. Obviously, this was quite interesting to the cashier and she asked what I was going to do with all of this sausage. My response was the obvious, “Well, eat it of course.” But actually, she had a great point.
It is wonderful to go into the grocery store and get things for free, but sometimes, if we go in without some sort of plan, things end up going to waste. So, in light of this conversation, I decided to post what I am planning to do with some (not all) of the sausage in the form of a recipe from my grandmother. I made two versions of this same meal tonight. I will denote the variations below.
6 eggs (beaten)
6 slices of bread (broken)
¾ tsp dry mustard
salt and pepper
1 lb. Sausage
2 cups of cheese
2 ½ cups of milk
Mix eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper and cheese together in a large bowl. Next, add sausage and bread. Place the mixture in a 8 X 8 pan. Refrigerate overnight. Then, the next day, bake at 350 degrees for about 55 minutes.
Some variations to consider:
I am substituting ½ cup of milk in one of the recipes with salsa and adding some chopped green chilies.
For the other one, I am using cinnamon swirl raisin bread and sausage with diced apples.
Also, if you are looking for something a little more sizeable, I have doubled the recipe and baked it in a 13 X 9 pan.
