Ingredients

  • 4 sausage patties
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 3-3/4 cups milk, divided
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 cups cubed french bread
  • 10 large eggs
  • 3/4 cups grated cheese (I used triple cheddar blend)

Directions

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees; lightly oil 9×13″ baking dish

2) To large skillet over medium-high heat, add sausage patties and cook 2-3 minutes each side until cooked through; remove patties from skillet, finely chop, and set aside

3) To rendered fat in skillet (you should have about 2 tbsp; if not, add a bit of oil) over medium heat, add flour and whisk continuously until well combined; gradually whisk in 3 cups of milk (reserving 3/4 cup) and continue whisking and breaking up lumps until mixture is smooth and thick; stir in salt, black pepper, and chopped sausage; remove from heat

4) Spread bread cubes over bottom of baking dish and pour sausage gravy over them; let soak 10 minutes

5) Meanwhile, beat eggs and reserved 3/4 cup milk in large bowl; pour egg mixture over sausage gravy-soaked bread cubes and bake in oven 45-50 minutes until just done in center; sprinkle cheese over top and cook additional 2-3 minutes until cheese melts; enjoy!
