Sausage and Cheese Strata

Prepared by Kelly


12 eggs, beaten lightly
3 1/2 cups milk
Pinch of nutmeg
Salt and Pepper
2 tsp. of mustard (I added this on my own)
1 roll of pork sausage (I used hot) I used a store brand "Hot" sausage and I think it was a bit too hot. Try Jimmy Dean "regular" sausage. You could substitute diced ham or chopped bacon. Veggies would also go well with this dish.
1 cups grated cheddar cheese (I use 1 cup sharp cheddar & 1 cup jalapeƱo jack cheese)
1 loaf bread


Start by letting the bread sit out for awhile, so that it gets hard – at least a half an hour. Beat eggs, add the milk, beat lightly until mixed. Add about 3/4 cup of the cheese to the eggs, mix. Cook sausage, break it up as it cooks, drain. Cut or rip bread into cubes, layer in pan (9X13) to cover bottom well. Sprinkle with sausage pieces and some of the cheese. Layer more bread, until pan is pretty full, more sausage and cheese. Then pour egg mixture over, spreading it out so it just covers the bread. Add a little more cheese to the top. Cover tightly with aluminum foil, put in fridge overnight. To bake: Preheat over to 350. Cook uncovered for at least 50 minutes or until egg is cooked and it is puffed up and brown. Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting. ENJOY!
