Savory Breakfast Bread Pudding

This breakfast dish is perfect to feed a hungry crowd with minimal effort in the morning. An easy savory brunch meal, packed full of protein, plus it's kid and adult approved! You can make it the night before and let it rest in the refrigerator or bake it right away. 


This dish is perfect to make the night before so all of the bread gets nice and soaked through, making like a savory French Toast. BUT if you can also just let it soak up while your oven is preheating. 

The Supply List


  • 3C Bread, torn into pieces - white, sourdough, or half a loaf of French bread will work
  • 1 lb Wild Earth Breakfast Pan Sausage
  • 3 C Milk
  • 10 Eggs
  • 1.5C Shredded Cheddar Cheese or cheese blend
  • Salt, pepper, red pepper (optional)
  • 1 chopped green onion (opt)
  • Bacon crumbles (opt)
  • Steens Cane Syrup or maple syrup for serving



9x13x2 or 9x12x3 Baking dish

The Steps


  • In a skillet, brown and crumble you Breakfast Pan Sausage. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Grease a 9x13 Casserole dish
  • Tear your bread into 1" chunks and add to the dish. (For a more uniform texture, you can cut the crusts off prior to tearing. I prefer the variety and not wasting any bread. ) 
  • Add half of the cheese to the dish, sausage, and green onion
  • Pour over with egg mixture and top with remaining cheese. 
  • Bake at 325* for 45-60min until egg is set in the middle.
If making ahead of time:
  • Cover with plastic wrap and (carefully) move to the fridge. 
  • Remove in the morning and allow to sit for 30-45 minutes on the counter before baking at 325 for 45-60 min until egg is set in the middle.
If it looks like the cheese is browning too quickly, lightly tent a piece of aluminum foil over the dish. 
  • Allow the dish to rest for 5 minutes or more before serving to allow the eggs to set. 
We like a little drizzle of sweetness to balance the savory like maple syrup or Steen's Cane Syrup!
