A tasty breakfast casserole, great served with a fresh fruit salad.

- Pour the remaining flour mixture over top. Pour the tomato sauce over the flour mixture. Top with the remaining cheese.

This is an fast and easy recipe to put together. I made one change and that was to use fat-free 1/2 & 1/2. It worked perfectly well in this dish. Instead of plain tomato sauce, I used a mild salsa with green chiles, and it gave it the kick that was needed. Very nice! Thank you for sharing your recipe.
This is a very good, very easy casserole. We had it for supper along with some bacon. My boys like things super spicy so they added hot sauce to theirs. Thank you for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.
