Recipe by Lorac

Sugar, spice and everything nice transforms pumpkin pie into a very special breakfast or brunch treat. Butternut and zucchini squash replace the pumpkin and breakfast sausage adds a wonderful savory and spicy touch. A great make ahead dish for brunches and you can substitute canned pumpkin to save time. Ready, Set, Cook #3
