Mama J's Breakfast Casserole

Jake and his friends have a breakfast club called the "Brodeo." (ask him what it is called when they invite the girls!!!). These boys all get together for Bryant's every Saturday morning and just do guy things. I like to imagine they talk about how much they love their wives/girlfriends/sig others and about fixing up the house and such but in reality, they probably talk about bodily functions, movies, and make crude jokes. They are boys.

But really, they are sweet guys and are sweet to each other. One of the boys, Ryan, and his wife had a baby together (well, Molly HAD it, but they did it together) last December. Grady's baptism was Sunday and so the Breakfast crew threw a brunch for all the family in town for the service. Ed and Hez hosted (they are good at that) and supplied the biscuits from Bryant's (a must). All the guys brought something (Dave brought his awesome Monkey Bread, Andrew brought Skier's Toast, and Rob brought a cucumber salad and a vegetable medley). To round things out, we brought the two breakfast things that Jake's mom always makes - our favorites. 

First, we made her cheese grits. These have jalapeno, cheddar cheese, and garlic in them. YUM. Jake made them and was supposed to take a picture, but didn't, so just visualize greatness. 

The main thing we made, though, was her breakfast casserole. Every holiday and special occasion in the history of the Jaspers as I've known them has had this casserole and it just makes you feel like all is right in the world.

 This is Mama J's Breakfast Casserole. Below is the recipe but know that when I cook, I like to just do a bit of this and that, so don't expect exact measurements. 

1 lb sausage (we used HOT because we like it)
1 pack sharp cheddar cheese
6 slices of white bread (torn into cubes)
8 eggs (beaten)
2 cups milk
salt and peppa'

Brown the sausage, prep the eggs (beat them) and pour the milk in the container with the eggs (add salt and pepper), cube the bread.

Grease a 9 by 13 casserole dish. Layer the bread on the bottom. Sprinkle the sausage in an even layer through the whole dish. Sprinkle the cheese in even layers. Pour the egg/milk/SP mixture on top. 

Cook at 325 for about 45 minutes.
