12 beaten eggs 14 slices bread 2 1/4 cups milk 2 1/2 cups grated cheddar or monterey jack cheese 1 pound sausage, cooked and drained 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 2 teaspoons mustard, optional
Grease sides of crockpot (or spray with Pam). If desired, spread mustard on one side of the bread and cut bread into large squares. Make layers in the crockpot of bread, followed by sausage, followed by cheese, ending with a cheese layer.
Beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together. Pour over crockpot mixture, cover and cook on low for 8-12 hours.
I'm glad I checked on this when I did because it was ready in 6 hours in my crock pot. Made it as directed. Very good, but we ended up eating early.

I used breakfast sausage links that I cooked and then chopped up since I didn't have any bulk sausge on hand. Easy recipe to make with normal ingredients.

The first time I made this I skipped the mustard step as it sounded like extra work. The eggs were good but just ok. After that I tried the mustard and it really helped zip up the recipe.

12 hours would be way too long for this so keep it under 8. It's good, could use something like nutmeg unless you use spicy turkey sausage or maybe spicy cheese.

I bought a new crock pot and tried this for a work potluck. It was WONDERFUL! I scaled it up a bit (18 eggs, 2lbs sausage, ~2lbs cheese, etc. - fit perfectly in my 6qt oval), and put it in at 10pm using the probe set for 160 degrees. By 6am it was done and had automatically shifted to warm. The internal temperature was ~180 or so, I let it coast with the crock pot off for 30-45 min (temp never dropped below 160). Plugged in at work on the WARM setting and it was a HUGE hit. No crust on the bottom or sides, no sticking to the pot (I did grease with shortening), and only slightly brown. Will definitely make this again. Thanks!

I really liked this recipe. I noticed the other reviewers' comments about the casserole being overdone. I had that happen previously with a different recipe in my newer crockpot. So I took out my trusty, 20-year-old crockpot for this one and it worked perfectly. I cooked it for about 9 hours. Also, I used 9 slices of toasted whole wheat bread instead of the 14 in the recipe (because that's all I had!). Received lots of compliments from coworkers! Also added just a little bit of sour cream because I wanted to use it up.

Pretty good! I use 23 eggs, substituted the milk for water, added spinach and tomatoes in the layers and some hot pepper. It was great and easy! Feed the 4 of us for 3 meals!

Enzo's Mom COMMENT: I'm not the best cook...and I really thought this one was impossible to screw up. I started the crock pot at 9pm and by 5:30am the edges were burnt to a crisp. I tried the center part and there was nothing worth salvaging. What went wrong?
CDKitchen Staff Reply: Crockpots heat differently depending on brand, model and even the age of the unit. Many of the newer crockpots way overcook foods. I have one that I have to use the "low" setting for any recipe calling for high heat, and the "warm" setting for ones calling for low heat otherwise recipes don't turn out right.

Joisey Kathy REVIEW:
Someone made this for a party at work. IT WAS AMAZING!! She did say it didn't take quite as long to cook as the recipe indicated but that might be because a different crock pot was used. When I make it, I am going to try adding some red peppers and onions. I'll watch it close to see how long it takes. TRY IT, YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!
