This turned out great! I did cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 8x8 pan since I didn't really need 12 servings. I also didn't make the healthy version lol! I used a bold country sausage and white bread instead of the reduced fat and whole wheat. Thanks, this one is a keeper!

This is wonderful! I used turkey sausage, lite bread, egg beaters, skim milk, country gravy mix, and lite cheddar cheese. I did have to bake closer to one hour. I also cut into 12 servings which took the calories down to 225/serving. Very tasty! Thanks for posting!!
