It’s me, again! Jen from Defining My Happy.
Summer is synonymous with campfires, s’mores and baseball games. I love all of these things, too, but the best part of Summer for me is brunch. It’s nice to host a mid-morning affair outside before the sun bears down too strong and everybody runs for cover. Plus, serve mimosas along with a yummy Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Casserole. Need I say more?
I recently hosted a brunch for a few of my girlfriends and put together a simple, yet tasteful spread that kept the compliments coming long after the food was gone. The key for a good brunch is to keep the menu relatively light. Freshly sliced melon with peaches or pears contrast nicely in a beautiful serving bowl. If you’re serving strawberries, I recommend leaving them whole and placing them on a large decorative plate. If you’re hosting for a small group, I recommend one main dish with two side dishes.
Here’s how I hosted a brunch for 7 people:
I decided to make a sausage, egg and cheese casserole for my main dish. It was light, yet filling and received the most compliments.
1 Lb Country Mild Sausage
1 Pk Crescent Rolls
2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1-2 Teaspoons Garlic Salt
1-2 Teaspoons Italian Seasoning
Sprinkle of Pepper

My family and I love these! I have made them with the addition of sauteed vegetables (mushrooms, onions, steamed broccoli, even roasted red peppers, green peppers or whatever I have available that would taste good) and I have even added or changed the type of cheese I use. And, we even use broken up Italian, French bread or multi grain bread as the base and add some skim milk to the eggs so that the bread gets soaked. Don’t get me wrong, the recipe is wonderful as is though! Thanks for sharing it.
