Egg Thing is a Christmas and Easter must at the Cerreta household. We make it at the end of the night and enjoy the morning of the big day.

This tradition started in high school and has never stopped. This is an easy recipe I've been able to make myself -- much to my friends' delight!

It's a good one! I hope you enjoy! I know I'll be having it on Christmas morning right after the presents are unwrapped! And, yes, we affectionately call it Egg Thing! 

Butter or Pam
8 slices sandwich bread
2 cups grated cheese
2 lbs. Jimmy Dean sausage
8 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 tsp. dry mustard
1 small onion, minced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1 can Ro-Tel
Salt and pepper to taste
Addition grated cheese to taste

Butter (or Pam) just the bottom of a 9-x-13 pan and then line bottom with your bread slices.

Add 2 cups grated cheese.

Brown your sausage, and then pour it over the cheese.

Mix your eggs, 1 1/2 cups of milk, dry mustard and onion.

Pour mixture over sausage, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
In morning, mix cream of mushroom soup and 1/2 cup milk, and then pour over top.

Another options is to mix one can of Ro-tel with a scant amount of water and pour over top. (I prefer mushroom soup!)

Top with more shredded cheese. 

Bake uncovered at 350 for 1 hour.

I love it with lots of salt and pepper. 

Egg Thing freezes really well so you can enjoy leftovers!
