A quick and easy breakfast casserole that uses croutons so the bread is already cubed for you. This recipe is from my new favorite casserole cookbook.

What a great casserole! The mushroom soup topping adds a different spin to a strata. I used more homemade croutons as I had them on hand and only a pound of sausage and it worked out fine. The flavors were great just like this, but I can see adding whatever vegetables are on hand. Diced red peppers, fresh mushrooms, onions, spinach, or my family even suggested minced jalapenos. I served this as "breakfast for dinner" with fresh fruit cups. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
