  • 6 slices bread, cubed
  • 1 pound sausage, browned and drained
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 (14 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Spread the bread evenly into the bottom of a greased 9×13 inch baking dish.
  • Spoon the cooked sausage evenly over the bread.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the eggs, evaporated milk, milk, salt, cloves and pepper. Beat well.
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread and sausage. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Prior to baking, preheat the oven to 350ºF. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until set.
  • Cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve warm and enjoy!


  • Storing leftovers. Place any leftover breakfast casserole in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to about 5 days.
  • To reheat. Pop individual servings in the microwave and cook for 30 second intervals until warm. You can also place the casserole dish in the oven at 350ºF. If using the oven, loosely cover with foil and place the dish on the center rack for 15 to 25 minutes, until warmed through (the larger the serving, the longer the cook time).
  • Freezing. Place leftovers in an airtight freezer-safe storage container or a freezer-safe baggie in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
