I'm Pretty Thrilled About This Recipe!

Overnight Croissant Casserole

Long story short, I bought wayyyy too many croissants. I didn't want them to go waste and I sho-nuff wasn't going to throw 'em away. So I found a recipe that I tried over the weekend and it is pretty delish.


INGREDIENTS

1lb regular pork sausage (mild, spicy or maple will work)

1 Lg onion diced

1 c. fresh spinach, roughly chopped

1 16oz package of shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

6 large croissants (or 10 minis), cut into cubes

12 large eggs

1½ cups of milk

1 c. half & half

2 tsp. ground mustard seed

1 tsp. salt

½tsp. paprika

½tsp. garlic powder

DIRECTIONS

☛In a large skillet, brown the sausage over medium heat until fully cooked. 

☛Transfer the sausage to a paper towel lined plate.

☛Remove the grease by slightly patting with the paper towels, then place in a medium mixing bowl. 

☛Saute the onion (using a little leftover sausage grease in skillet) until translucent.

☛Add the spinach to the onions and wilt. 

☛Add to the bowl with the sausage, then toss with the cheese and cubed croissants. 

☛Spread into the bottom of a 13x9 casserole. 

☛In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, half and half, mustard, salt, paprika, and garlic powder. 

☛Pour over the mixture in the pan, taking care to soak the tops of all of the croissant pieces. 

☛Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.

☛Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake uncovered for 45-50 minutes or until the center is set and the tops are golden brown. 

☛Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
