Sausage & Broccoli Bake

This is supposedly a casserole, but you could easily use this for breakfast as a sort of "egg bake."

Mom sent this to me recently and man, it's DELISH!

Sausage & Broccoli Bake

1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli
1 lb. bulk Italian Sausage
3 cups seasoned salad croutons
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
4 eggs beaten
1 can cream of broccoli soup (undiluted)
1 1/3 cup milk
1 can (2.8 oz.) french fried onions

Cook broccoli according to pkg. directions, drain and set aside. In a lg. skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink, drain.

Combine the broccoli, sausage, croutons and cheese. Transfer to a greased 2 qt. baking dish. In a bowl combine the eggs, soup and milk and pour over sausage mixture. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Sprinkle with french fried onions. Bake for 3-5 minutes. Serves 6-8
