Breakfast Casserole

I got the original recipe from here.  Try hers, I am sure it is DE-LISH however, I didn't have everything that I would have needed for her recipe, so I substituted a few things.

I make this, and then we have it for a couple days because I love eggs for breakfast! (measurements for cheese are approximate)

1 pkg. (26 ounces) frozen potatoes O'Brien (the kind with green pepper and onions)
1 pkg. sausage, fried up and crumbled
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded SHARP cheddar cheese
3 green onions, sliced
12 eggs
1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 ground black pepper


1. Spray a 6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Layer 1/2 of the potatoe on the bottom of slow cooker.

2. Top with half of the sausage, cheese, & green onion. Repeat layering.

3. Beat eggs, milk and pepper in large bowl with a wire whisk until well blended.

4. Pour evenly over potato-sausage mixture.

5. Cook on low setting for 6-8 hours or on high setting for 3-4 hours or until eggs are set.

Homemade YUMMY Croutons!

I don't know why I've never attempted homemade croutons, because I don't really like the kind purchased in the store...  Today was my first attempt!  and they were good!!  These could make the pickiest of salad eaters eat salad!  I got the recipe from Family Feasts for $75 a week!  One of my favorite cookbooks!  The recipe below is doubled!  Mostly because I could eat a single recipe as a snack!  I used leftover sub buns from Milano Bakery.

8 slices bread, cubed
4 T butter
4 T olive oil (I only had veggie oil so that's what I used)
1 t dried basil
1 t dried oregano
1 t garlic powder

Preheat oven 425*

melt butter, mix all ingredients except bread together.

Get a big bowl, toss, bread and butter mixture together

bake 10-15 minutes.  Let cool.  ENJOY!  you can store in an airtight container for 1 month (I have no idea how you could get them to last that long!)
