What to Do with All the Sausage

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.

Breakfast Brunch

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.

I use this sausage (also from Albertsons and I think we must have had the same cashier,lol)in fresh breakfast burritos. I buy fresh made tortillas at Villa Mexican on Ina/Shannon( after 10;30 a.m.) when I am in a hurry, otherwise I get them at La Palma Oracle/Prince...these are the BEST.Just fry up a chunk of either reg sausage or the bacon/sausage variety is great for a change up. Drain. Scramble eggs right in the skillet, return the sausage and a handful of cheese and there you go! My husband is addicted to these at Los Betos but has preferred homemade since I started copying the idea. When tortillas need a little help wrap the burrito in wax paper ,it adds moisture and keeps spills to a minimum. Let's make sure we don't shop Albertsons on the same day, ha
