    MamaJ's Note:

    This is an elegant take on breakfast food. It can be made the night before and baked just before serving. Give this a try if you want something a little different than a breakfast casserole or strata. It is a very lovely meal to serve to brunch guests. Enjoy! **Don't let the long list of ingredients or instructions put you off. It is very simple to make.

      These are really good and really filling. Tasty and something impressive to fix for guests. Made for ZWT4 Family Picks for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

      Hmmm. These were good, but I think they need some tweaking before I make them again. We think they need more sausage and less cheese sauce, I also found them really big...too much filling and not enough phyllo. We enjoyed them better when I folded the pastry in thirds (lengthwise) and used only 1/4-1/3 cup of the filling. I also couldn't see what the point of the breadcrumbs between the layers was, couldn't taste them when they were there and didn't miss them when they weren't. A neat idea though...thanks!

      I did not make these but had them at a friends house for brunch with bloody marys. They melted inyour mouth- very rich so no need to eat more than one- the nutmeg added great flavor.
