Christmas Breakfast Recipe
This is the traditional family gathering breakfast at my house. My sister and my cousins know it. We all have fond memories of eating it growing up. But almost nobody I know has ever even heard of anything similar.
My boys aren’t usually much for anything saucy or mixed. So I was a little nervous earlier this year when my mom announced this was on the menu at her house when we visited. But they totally surprised me by asking for seconds. Then they asked me to make it over and over again. But I had to use my mom’s biscuit recipe. Which we kept locked up like FT Knox for as long as we could. I had been making biscuits from scratch for years, so discovering my boys liked my mother’s (frozen Pillsbury Grands) more, was both disappointing and a relief!
Sausage and Egg Bake
1 lb sausage (we like hot but get what you love)
2 T flour
2 T Butter
2 cups milk
1 can corn (drained)
A dash or two of Worcestershire Sauce
Salt, Pepper, Crushed Red Pepper to taste
6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped or halved and sliced
1 cup Breadcrumbs (optional)
Preheat over to 375 degrees (unless making ahead). Measure and set milk aside. Crumble and brown sausage in large skillet over medium-high heat. Drain fat. Add butter and flour. Cook, stirring until flour browns slightly, about 4 minutes.
Slowly add milk. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened. Add corn, Worcestershire Sauce, and spices to taste. Remove from heat and gently stir in eggs. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Transfer mixture to baking dish. Top with breadcrumbs. Cover with aluminum foil. If baking immediately, place in pre-heated oven for 30 minutes or until center is bubbly. Remove foil and bake another 10-15 minutes until bread crumbs are lightly browned. If making ahead, place in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator, then preheat oven to 375 degrees before baking. Bake covered for 1 hour or until center is bubbly. Then uncover and back for an additional 10-15 minutes until bread crumbs are lightly browned.
Serve over or beside biscuits or corn muffins. You choose the recipe!
