Mama's Morning Casserole

Mama's Morning Casserole

Adapted from Gooseberry Patch Old-Fashioned Country Christmas .   I modified the recipe by using Dijon mustard instead of mustard powder and adding more cheese.  I prefer sharp cheddar  in this dish.   Makes 6 to 8 servings.  

6 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup biscuit baking mix (I use Bisquick)
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 pound bulk pork sausage, browned, drained and cooled (I prefer Jimmy Dean Original)

To beaten eggs, add milk, mustard and oregano.   Whisk until blended.
  Add in baking mix, cheese and sausage.  Mix well with a heavy wooden spoon.
 Pour into a greased 9×13 casserole dish.   Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for  60 minutes or until browned.  Serve warm.
