OMG this is to die for! We've had it with maple sausage, and then with half hot sausage and half regular sausage (reduced-fat). I think it's better without the maple sausage, but either way, this recipe is awesome.
Oh what a nice breakfast I have had, I made ready the night before and just popped it in the oven and hey presto it's ready for DH coming in from the night shift. I didn't have the sausage that you had so I used an other kind, and just chopped them up, and no American cheese, so I used cheese slices, which I believe are very similar. Thank you for posting.

This recipe is really very different than anything I have tried before, but very good. I am not used to having the sweet and savory elements of breakfast mixed together in one dish, but I must say it was a nice change. I did have some maple sausage to use that I had never tried before. It really imparts quite a lot of sweetness to the casserole. The bottom bread layer becomes pancake-like during cooking. The additional layers add all sorts of great flavors. Thanks for the opportunity to try something new and good!
