Recipe by CarrolJ
This wonderful casserole is the best 'breakfast casserole' I have ever eaten. It could easily be served at any time of day. I first ate it at a Wedding Shower and could hardly wait for the bride's mother to get the recipe for me from the Aunt who lived in another state. I am posting the recipe exactly as I received it...however I would personally increase the salt to 1 teaspoon instead of the 1/4th teaspoon since I remember adding salt when I ate it before.

9/9/07 I have been making this for over 15 years and it is awesome. I always use pepper jack cheese because I found anything else to lack flavor in this dish. I have served this for brunches and family dinner. Serve with fresh fruit salad or melon slices along with Kona Inn Banana Bread and you have a wonderful brunch meal. UPDATE: 11/09 after reading these reviews I thought I would suggest using a large pie plate. It makes for a better presentation and easier serving.
