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.
