Egg Sausage Casserole (Christmas Casserole)

* 6 hard boiled eggs
* 1/2 cup butter/margarine
* 1/2 cup flour
* 4 cups milk
* 1 pound bulk pork sausage (I use bob evans or jimmy dean)
* 1 1/2 - 2 cups stuffing
* 1 pkg. shredded cheese
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* dash of pepper

* Serves 6

Slice 2 of the eggs and place into the bottom of a 1 1/2 quart casserole. In a saucepan, melt the margarine, blend in the flour, add the salt and pepper. Add the milk all at once, and cook stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and bubbles. Cook sausage, drain off fat. Stir sausage into sauce and pour half of it over the eggs you sliced in the casserole dish.

Sprinkle 1/2 of the shredded cheese and follow with 1/2 of the stuffing. Layer another 2 sliced eggs on top of this. Pour the rest of the sausage sauce atop this. Again layer the cheese and the stuffing. Finish by placing the last 2 sliced eggs on top and dust lightly with stuffing.

Cover casserole and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or longer, until it is bubbling.

This is our MUST HAVE yearly Christmas morning breakfast. It is very filling. Since it can be prepared the night before, you can enjoy Christmas morning without much preparation.

Yummmy!!! My mom makes a similar quiche like this, that call for 6 eggs scrambled in a pie crust with your choice of fillings + shredded cheese & a little dash of nutmeg...I love these sorts of things for breakfast (esp on holidays)!!! Thanks for the recipe!!
