Every Christmas I have mixed feelings about letting the kids eat tons of candy in the wee early morning hours before eating anything nutritious. I’m not about to give the kiddos all kinds of candy and then tell them not to eat it…..that wouldn’t make much sense. On the other hand who wants a houseful of kids with sky rocketing blood sugar and belly aches. This year I’m going to try something a little different and see if it works. My mom let me know about this recipe and suggested I give it a try. It’s a “do-ahead” which is the only way to go on Christmas Day.
8 eggs, slightly beaten
6 slices of bread, cubed
1 Cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 lb. sausage (pork, beef, or turkey) cooked and drained
2 Cup milk
1 tsp. dry mustard
Mix all ingredients, pour in greased 9 x 13 baking dish, refrigerate overnight
Bake 30 minutes at 350….serves 8
I’m going make this tomorrow and then pop in in the oven first thing Christmas morning. I’m hoping we can much on this throughout the morning so the kids have something warm and solid in the stomaches along with their chocolate/marshmallow Santas and candy canes.
