If you ask us, the best way to start a big day is with a big breakfast! For the holiday you celebrate this season, these recipes are sure to have everyone rushing into your McKinney home.

Breakfast Sausage Casserole

This is a great make-ahead breakfast dish, especially for those living in our single-family homes that may have a kitchen full of guests. The recipe serves eight people. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 slices white bread, toasted and cut into cubes
  • 8 ounces mild cheddar cheese, shredded

Crumble up the sausage into a skillet and cook over medium until browned, and then drain. In a bowl, mix the mustard power, salt, eggs and milk. Add the sausage, bread cubes and cheese, and then stir to coat evenly. Pour the mixture into a greased 9×13 inch-baking dish. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours or while you’re sleeping! The next morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees, cover and bake 45 to 60 minutes. You may need to add a little more time depending on your oven. This recipe is so good, we’re sure it will be a new tradition for your family.

Eggnog French Toast

This recipe screams holiday, but we’re sure you’ll want to make it year-round. Here’s what you need:

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 ½ cups eggnog
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 12 slices French bread

Whisk the eggs, eggnog, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Preheat a lightly greased electric skillet to 300 degrees. Dip one slice of bread at a time into the mixture, coating the bread thoroughly. Place the coated bread slices into the skillet and cook, turning once, until each side is a nice golden brown. Now your delicious breakfast is done! Here’s a quick tip to make it even more flavorful: soak and refrigerate your bread slices in the mixture overnight in a large baking dish.
