Blog Prompt: Today is World Egg Day. What is your favorite egg dish?
I love scrambled eggs the best with the regular bacon and a biscut.Â My husband and I love to have this for supper sometimes.Â But he likes to have a bowl of grits with his eggs.
I also love quiche and I really love the Breakfast Casserole that I make for Christmas morning.Â I know alot of you have had it before and I will share the recipe with you below.Â This is a great casserole for a brunch too.
Jimmy Dean Breakfast Casserole
1 pkg.Regular Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage
10 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups milk
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
6 cups cubed bread
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped (optional)
1/2 cup thin-sliced green onions (optional)Preheat oven to 325 F. In large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. In large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, mustard and salt; stir well. Distribute half the bread evenly in a buttered 9″ x 13″ x 2″ baking dish. Sprinkle with half the pepper, half the cheese, half the sausage and half of each optional ingredient. Repeat layering using remaining bread, pepper, cheese, sausage and optional ingredients. Pour egg mixture evenly over casserole. Bake uncovered for 55-60 minutes, or until eggs are set. Tent with foil if top begins to brown too quickly.
May be assembled ahead and refrigerated up to 12 hours before baking.
MY VERSION:Â I always make it the night before and put it in the fridge.Â It seems to cook better the next day.Â I don’t put all the optional items on the top.
Here is another egg recipe I really love.Â This is a great quiche recipe and is great for supper with a good salad.
New England Clam Chowder Quiche

1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/2 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons parsley flakes or fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 slices American cheese
Bake crust 8 minutes in 400 degree oven. Remove shell. Reduce heat to 325 degrees. In bowl combine bacon, chowder, eggs, onion, sour cream, parsley and pepper; mix well. Pour about 2/3 of mixture into baked shell. Arrange cheese slices on top. Pour remaining mixture over cheese. Bake at 325 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until set. Cool 20 minutes before cutting and serving.
MY VERSION:Â I use Progresso Clam Chowder soup and have used different kinds of cheeses on top.
I would love to hear if anyone tried these.
