Breakfast or Breakfast for Dinner

I don't remember ever eating breakfast casseroles when I was a kid. I first had this one a couple of years ago. It was so delicious I asked my friend for the recipe. Since then, I've discovered it's a very versatile dish. This version is my stand-by, though, since we nearly always have the ingredients around.

2 slices of bread, any variety
½ lb bulk sausage
1 small onion
1 c spinach, well packed
5 eggs
1 c milk
1 small potato
½ c shredded or crumbled cheese
  • Cut bread into ½” cubes.
  • Brown sausage and drain well, reserving 1t grease.
  • Dice onion. Cook in reserved grease over medium-high heat until translucent, adding spinach for the last 2-3 minutes.
  • Beat together eggs and milk.
  • Shred potato into bottom of 8 x 8 baking dish.
  • Layer half the spinach, onions, bacon, and bread. Repeat with remaining half.
  • Pour egg mixture over layers. Press bread cubes into egg mixture until fully soaked.
  • Spread cheese over top of casserole.
  • Bake uncovered at 350° 50-55 minutes, until center is set and edges are browned.
