Breakfast Souffle

Sometimes it's the most whimsical moments that create the best dishes. You can only enjoy so many scrambled eggs before you need something different. Mom was right. It's always a good idea to get the day started with a delicious breakfast. I really needed something new! This tasty and filling dish makes a wonderful brunch, or a quick dinner too.  This will serve four.

8oz PKG Breakfast Sausage
1 Small Potato Diced
1/2 Cup Red Pepper diced
1/2 Cup Onion Diced
1 Small Jalapeno Diced
2 Cloves of Garlic Minced
4 Slices of bread
6 Eggs
1/4 Cup Milk
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Jack cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cooking Spray
Brown sausage in skillet until no longer pink.  Remove from skillet and add diced potato to sausage grease.  Cook potato until brown and crisp.  Add Peppers, Garlic and Onion stirring constantly for 2 to 3 minutes.  Return sausage and remove pan from heat.
Spray a 9" round pie dish with cooking spray.  Slice bread into approximately 1 1/2" slices.  Place one layer of bread on the bottom of the pie dish.  Make sure they are tight and close together.  Spoon half of the Sausage and Potatoes over bread.  Add another layer of bread and top with remaining sausage. Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper together until smooth.  Pour into pie dish making sure bread is completely covered.  With a flat spatula gently flatten the bread into the egg mixture.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until eggs are completely done.  Top with cheese and return to oven until melted about 2 minutes.
