Equipment

  • 13x9" casserole dish
  • Frying Pan
  • mixing bowl

Ingredients

  • 4-5 large deli croissants
  • 24 oz maple flavored breakfast sausage
  • 2 cups mild cheddar cheese shredded
  • 8 large eggs
  • cups milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 tbsp chives fresh or dried
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ lb bacon

Instructions

  • Butter a 13"x9" casserole dish. Tear croissants into bite sized pieces and layer the bottom of the casserole dish.
  • Cook the maple sausage in a nonstick skillet until browned and cooked all the way through. Drain. Layer the sausage and 2 cups of the shredded cheddar cheese on top of the torn croissants.
  • Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, mix together eggs, sour cream, milk, dry mustard, and black pepper. Whisk for approximately 1 minute until all ingredients are combined. Pour the egg mixture over the croissants, sausage, and cheese mixture in the casserole dish.
  • Cover the casserole with plastic wrap and allow to sit overnight in the fridge.
  • When ready to cook, remove plastic wrap from the casserole dish and replace with aluminum foil. Bake in the oven at 350° for approximately 50-60 minutes depending on egg consistency.
  • While the casserole is baking in the oven, cut up the bacon into bite size pieces and cook in a nonstick pan until brown and starting to crisp. Transfer to a paper towel to drain.
  • During the last few minutes of cooking, remove the aluminum foil covering from the casserole dish. Sprinkle with cooked bacon. Bake for another 5-10 minutes uncovered until the cheese is starting to become golden on top. Allow casserole to cool before serving.
