Oh my, this is a very nice casserole. I can't believe no one has reviewed it yet! I cheated and used part ham and part lean ground turkey instead of the sausage (that's what was in the fridge and needed to be used), but using breakfast sausage would only make this better. I did replace 4 of the eggs with an equivalent amount of egg whites (from a carton). I also used homemade all whole wheat bread instead of white bread (100% Whole Grain Wheat Bread). And I used half cheddar and half swiss because the cheddar in my fridge was an extremely aged cheddar and is too powerful a flavor all by itself. Oh, and I don't eat onion, so left that out. Thanks for sharing, this is a keeper.
