Sunday Brunch on Perrier

Since J & I had so many out-of towner friends in for French Quarter Fest, we decided to hold a Sunday Brunch at our home to be able to sit and chat with friends from near and far.

The brunch consisted of libations such as bloody mary's and mimosas and great food including crawfish pies, breakfast casserole, sausage balls, spinach quiche by BFF Ellen, sausage stuffed mushrooms and cake balls by BFF Lori, and an assortment of pastries from BFFs Casey and Tom from Boulangerie, a local French bakery.

This Breakfast Casserole recipe was first shared with me by BFF Amanda of Dixie Delights:

1 lb ground pork sausage
10 white bread slices, cubed
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs
2 c. milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp worcestershire sauce

Cook sausage in skillet over medium heat until it crumbles and is not pink, Drain.
Place bread in lightly greased 9x13" baking dish; sprinkle with cheese and top with sausage
Whisk eggs and remaining ingredients & pour over sausage.
Cover and chill for 8 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

This Sausage Ball recipe was shared by Julie Schnelle of my Georgia Tech days:

1 lb Jimmy Dean sausage

Great food, drinks, and conversation was enjoyed by all. Now, I feel like I need to get back to work to rest. LOL.
