Breakfast Casserole

Me: Hey honey... what do you want for dinner?
My husband: Uh, what do we have?
Me: Ummm, do you feel about breakfast?

I played it safe, knowing very well he never turns down breakfast. This is usually how dinner planning goes at my house. When it is getting to the point when it is slim pick-ins in the refrigerator we usually just throw some random stuff together. This is how the breakfast casserole came to be. It always starts the same basic way; vegetable, starch and protein. To our surprise this one came out pretty well. You can make to same basic thing just changing the filling for what ever you happen to have.

Breakfast casserole
4 Eggs
1/2 C Milk
Salt / Pepper
1 C Sliced yellow squash
2 Hot links (Sausage) Cooked
1/2 C Cheese of choice
2-4 Pieces of bread (it is ok if a little stale)

Cut up sausage and squash then set aside. Whisk together eggs, milk and spices. Stir in cheese, sausage and squash then pour into an oven safe dish. Cut or tear bread into 1-2 inch pieces then layer on top of mixture. Lightly press down on bread to help absorb some of the liquid into the bread.

Bake at 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes.
(Time and temperature may vary depending on your oven. Bread should be toasted to a golden brown and middle will be firm, not runny)
