It’s been a very busy day for hubby and I.  First we ran errands.  (Not so much fun) Then stopped for a quick lunch. (Cheese curds were very naughty and very yummy)   Later, we went to a few stores and did some ‘bargain’ hunting.  That’s what I call it, because I don’t like to pay full price for anything.  It’s a good thing that hubby has a lot of patience.  Bargain shopping takes time!!  A lot of time!  But luckily I was able to check off a few items on my ‘want’ list.  Since I had a gift card for Home Depot (received it on a paint promotion they had last fall) I was able to pick up some more paint for our dining room project.  (I’ll be sharing that with you from start to finish)

Once we were home and had put everything away, I was reminded just how exhausting shopping can be!!!  My tootsies are killing me!!

Thankfully, the main dish I’m making for tomorrow’s brunch is so easy!  I’d already browned the sausage and made up the croutons last night.  So I was way ahead of the game!

Here is the recipe:

3 3/4 cups seasoned croutons. ****Tip (I make my own- by using day old french bread.  I cut the bread  into small cubes, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp kosher salt, and 1/4 tsp ground pepper.  I spread the seasoned cubes out on a baking sheet-and bake at 400 degrees for about 15 min.)
1 lb sausage, browned and crumbled
2 1/2 cups milk
3 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
6 eggs
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp pepper
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Once you have all the ingredients at your disposal- Grease a 9×13 pan.

Arrange croutons evenly in pan.

Sprinkle sausage and 2 cups of cheese on top of croutons.

Beat eggs, milk, and soup.  Add dry mustard.
Pour egg mixture over top of crouton mixture.
Top with remaining 1 cup of cheese
Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
See!  How easy was that?  Now all I have to do tomorrow is- Preheat my oven to 325 and bake the casserole for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  Remove foil and bake for 15 minutes more.
This cheesy egg dish will pair well with my blueberry muffins, and fruit parfaits!

Now that I have everything done-I think it’s time to soak and energize my feet!  I’ll share my secret with you in tomorrow’s post!
Until then- have a safe and relaxing evening!
