Cheese and Sausage Egg Strata

A few weeks ago we showed you our “What’s for Brunch” menu.  We’ve had so many fun fall recipes to post we haven’t had a chance to get back to it!

This beauty of this recipe is that it is so good, yet so simple and you can make it up the night before.  We eat it on Christmas morning for that very reason {along with Sour Cream Apple Coffee Cake which can also be made up a day or two in advance.}   There is just too much going on Christmas morning to be cooking – I need a rest by then!

That’s what makes it perfect for brunch – one less thing to get ready that morning!

Cheese and Sausage Egg Strata


4 slices bread, cut into 1″ squares

6 eggs

2 cups milk

1 cup cooked sausage (can substitute ham or bacon)

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 cup grated cheese

1 teaspoon salt

pepper to taste


Grease or spray a 13×9 pan.  Place bread in pan, sprinkle with meat, then cheese.  Beat together eggs, milk, mustard, salt, and pepper.  Pour over layers in pan.













Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes (removed foil last 10 minutes to brown).

So simple – so good!

  1. I make this on Christmas morning too! It’s one of my family’s favorite recipes. We also enjoy it on Sunday mornings and sometimes even for dinner. Glad you shared this.
