Back in December, I had the kids all coming home. When they come, I try to cook some but I hate being tied to the kitchen. I prefer visiting. I’ve learned to try to cook some type of meal ahead so I don’t spend the whole time in the kitchen. Happily, my kids are helpful cooks so even if I do end up in the kitchen I have some company.
I pulled out a cookbook and looked for something that could be prepped ahead and left in the refrigerator before they came so Friday I mixed up this…
This is life here…all my mixing bowls were in the dishwasher so a clean ice cream bucket was used for mixing.
While I was putting that together the sausage was frying in the pan.
I had bread that needed to be cubed. This is a great recipe to use up some stale bread. I love recipes that use stale bread. I need them more than ever as it’s hard for a single person to use up bread.
Here it is all mixed together.
Here it is my Pyrex pan…This is the one that is smaller than a 9 x 13.
From there it went in the refrigerator and waited for the kids to arrive.
We ended up eating it for brunch on Sunday. The little kids weren’t real excited about it. I liked it as did Kayla and Craig. I will admit that I think I like egg bake casseroles made with hashbrowns more than I like this version with bread.
My plan is to keep this recipe in the arsenal so that when I do have bread that needs to be used up, I can fall back on this recipe.
