Breakfast Sausage Casserole

1 Tbsp Butter
1/2 Onion, diced
3 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 lb Ground Sage Sausage
11/2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
8 Eggs
1 3/4 cup Milk
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Dried Mustard
1/4 tsp Salt
8 oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
6-7 slices of Sandwich Bread


1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.

2.  In a large skillet, melt the butter, and then saute the onion until softened, about 5 minutes.  Add in the garlic and the sausage, and cook until the sausage is no longer pink.  Remove from heat and drain any excess grease.  Stir in maple syrup.

3.  In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs.  Stir in the milk, Worcestershire, mustard, and salt.

4.  Layer the bottom of the baking dish evenly with the bread, cutting bread to fit evenly if necessary. Spoon sausage mixture evenly over the bread, and then sprinkle the cheese on top of the sausage.  Finally, pour the egg mixture over all of it.

5.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until set.  Alternatively, this can be made the night before:  refrigerate unbaked casserole overnight covered, and then bake covered for 30 minutes and then uncover and bake until warm and set, about 10-15 minutes more.
