I pre-mixed this late last night, and let it sit in fridge over night to bake this morning. This turned out just lovely! I followed the recipe exactly, and I would not change a thing. I used a 1# tube of 'regular' Jimmy Dean sausage (although I thought about trying a flavored one). This makes a ton... but that's okay. Our neighbors across the street just got home very last night from their trip to China (which is why I prepped this at midnight). We had them and our other 2 neighbors all over for breakfast this morning, and we still have leftovers (now hubby can just 'nuke' a couple slices tomorrow morning to eat on his way to work)! I'm thinking this would be great for a Mothers' Day Brunch... HMMMM? Thank you for posting a very easy and delicious breakfast entree.
Nice breakfast casserole and so great that you can assemble it the day before you plan to serve it. I made 1/4 of the recipe, used Jimmy Dean sausage, 1 regular egg and the rest used "Egg Beaters", a combo of cheddar and Monterey Jack, "Simply Hash Browns" and I added my own chopped onion and red bell pepper. I did add the optional hot sauce, and did a couple of dashes, but I couldn't even tell it was in the casserole. So if you are making the full casserole, suggest using a lot more then a dash of the hot sauce if you want a little zip. I served mine with a fresh fruit salad and blueberry muffins for a very enjoyable brunch!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
