Aunt Gigi's Sausage & Rice Casserole
By Sharon Furches from April 2014 Issue
"We have it for breakfast on its own or as a dinner meal with other side dishes," Sharon Furches says.
2 lb sausage
4 C crisped rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
2 C cooked rice
16 oz grated sharp cheddar cheese
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1⁄4 C milk or half-and-half
2 cans condensed cream of celery soup
Preheat oven: 375°
Brown sausage and drain well. Put 2 cups of cereal in a 4-quart casserole. Top with half the sausage, half the rice, and half the cheese, and then sprinkle with 1 cup of cereal. Repeat layers. Beat eggs, milk, and soup to combine evenly. Pour mixture over the layers and bake for 45 minutes.
