DIY: Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Casserole + Smoked Gouda Bread

Every year I try my best to bring something festive and delicious to work to wish my friends and co-workers a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! This year...I decided to stray from the super sweet and go a little savory...enter Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Casserole + Smoked Gouda Bread!

I was hoping that I would have a visual aid for both...but I was slow with the camera and my co-workers were quick with their it's a no go on pictures of the casserole. {I swear it was beautiful!..and they seemed to enjoy it!}

Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
What you'll need:
16 ounces Jimmy Dean Maple Sausage
6 eggs
1 cup skim milk
1 tsp ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tsp oregano
8 ounces colby-jack shredded cheese
6 slices of bread (cubed)

First, cook sausage until browned and set aside. Then, mix eggs, milk, ground mustard, salt, pepper and oregano together until blended into smooth mixture. Add sausage and cheese. Stir until mixture is even. Add cubed pieces of bread. Grease a medium casserole pan and pour mixture into it. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, preheat oven to 350° and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot.

Smoked Gouda Bread
What you'll need:
2 packages of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls {I used Reduced Fat}
3 to 4 sliced of Smoked Gouda Cheese

First, preheat oven to 350°. Open tubes of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. Separate dough into 16 triangles. Place triangles on an ungreased baking sheet in an oval shape with each bottom edge overlapping the next triangle. Add two triangles in the center to act as a base to the bread. Place slices of cheese in the center of oval shape. Fold triangles over the cheese in an overlapping braided pattern. Bake in the oven for about 18 to 20 minutes. You're final result might look something like this:

Super easy and it looks like it took way longer to put together than it did! {5 minutes prep time and 18 minutes in the oven...WOW!}

So...if you're looking for some yummy breakfast treats...try these out! The Smoked Gouda Bread could easily be transitioned to lunch or dinner as well. Hope that you enjoyed these recipes and maybe even try them out! Have a great night!
