It was just the four of us for Christmas this year (and we had church early in the morning too) so I was looking for easy and tasty things to make ahead. This fit the bill and was really really tasty. I used a combination of leftover bread (some french and some pumpernickle which gave a lovely freckled appearance to the dish) and used low fat chicken and spinach sausage for the meat. Really wonderful flavor and so easy to make. I also loved it cold with some sweet pickles!

This was so easy to throw together and tasted so good! I used Chicken and Apple Organic Sausage, other than that I followed the recipe exactly. A VERY picky three year old LOVED it! Thank you for posting this recipe!

This is a winner! Very easy to make, and the egg casserole has a nice firm texture! I used maple flavored sausage as a topping and added a little tabasco sauce before serving. Wonderful Christmas Day breakfast...many thanks for sharing this! :)
