This is a Christmas morning tradition in our family, however you can make it year round. It is loved by all. I like it because you make it the night before and pop it in the oven when you wake up. While everyone is unwrapping their gifts the smell coming from the kitchen is tantalizing.

Lusil is my "adopt a chef" oldie and I'm so pleased to have chosen her! I must admit that I was scared off by the name- souffle- as they are notorious for being difficult (still have yet to attempt making a real one). However, this is more of a casserole and I was very relieved that its fool-proof! So flavorful too! I didn't need 8 servings, so I cut the recipe in half, used bulk turkey sausage and lightened it up even more by using only egg whites and skim milk. I put it together in the morning, let it sit "overday" and then baked it when I got home at night. Any excuse to eat breakfast for dinner! Mine (a half-recipe) was done in 35 minutes. The mustard adds great flavor. I'll be making the full-size version for my family's Christmas, and maybe Thanksgiving... Thanks Lusil! Now I'm even more excited about choosing your other recipes!
