I’ve been wanting to share this recipe with y’all for a while. A friend of mine passed it on to me a few years ago and it’s actually the first breakfast dish I ever made for John!

It’s SO easy and it is perfect for covering in tinfoil and keeping in the fridge and eating off of for a few days. I often make it for dinner and we’ll eat the leftovers all week. It’s SO good.

So yeah, here’s a little Tuesday recipe for you. 馃檪

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. of ground turkey or 1 lb. of sausage
  • 6 pieces of old white bread (or sourdough – also, now is the time to use the heels of the bread or the “ends” of the bread)
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups of milk, heavy cream, or half-and-half (I used skim milk)
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1-2 tsp of dill (honestly, to taste)

Directions:

Preheat the over to 325 degrees.

First, brown your turkey or sausage in a skillet. In a casserole dish, break up your six pieces of bread and line the bottom of the dish with the broken pieces of bread. Sprinkle the cooked meat (sausage or turkey) over the bread. Next, sprinkle some shredded cheese over the bread / meat mix.

In a medium bowl, mix the six eggs, salt, pepper, dill, and milk or cream. Then pour the mix over the bread / meat / cheese mix.

Place the casserole dish in the over for about 45 minutes or until a fork in the middle comes out clean.

Remove and serve. I, personally, LOVE mine with some ranch and hot sauce!

Enjoy!
