Cheese Sausage & Croissant Casserole

What a wonderful new Christmas Morning breakfast dish. Taken from Southern Living, all you need is a great fruit compote which will be on tomorrow’s blog post and you have a great way to celebrate Christmas morning.

1 lb ground pork sausage (such as Jimmy Dean)

1 1/4 cups (5 oz) shredded Parmesan cheese

1 teas salt

6 green onions, sliced

1 (13.22 oz) package mini croissants (about 24 of the mini ones), torn

Vegetable cooking spray

3 cups milk

1 cup heavy cream

5 large eggs, lightly beaten

2 cups (8 oz) shredded Gruyere cheese

Cook sausage 8 min in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring to crumble. When sausage is done, drain and toss with the Parmesan and next 3 ingredients. Arrange in a 13×9 baking dish which you have sprayed with vegetable cooking spray.

Whisk together milk and next 2 ingredients; pour over sausage mixture. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350. Uncover casserole and sprinkle with Gruyere. Bake 45 min or until golden. Let stand 10 min before serving.
