This recipe is a good recipe, but just not quite what I expected. I did use sausage instead of ham. I will cook again. DH liked this one better than I did. I think that next time I will use a combination of pepper jack cheese and sharp cheddar cheese. I tend to like the recipes with cheddar better.
I actually ate this recipe at a wedding shower several months ago. I thought it was the best tasting breakfast casserole I had ever eaten. I only recently received the requested recipe. I discovered today that Rhonda J had previously posted it here at Recipezaar. The only difference I found was that my copy used twice as much salt and pepper. I highly recommend trying this recipe! It is terrific tasting and sure looks easy to make. I especially appreciated when I ate it that it wasn't made from all the bread that most of them are made from.
This makes a lovely casserole. I made it the night before and served it to company the next morning. Not as rich as I had expected, but good. I used ham also.
