These are good for a brunch buffet along with some sort of an egg casserole.You can also cut them into smaller square to serve as appetizers.This can also be made in advance and frozen. Just reheat in a low oven before serving. This recipe can be doubled and baked in a greased two quart casserole.Originally from the food section of the Houston Chronicle.

Good stuff, Leslie! I made the mistake of halving the sausage (I used Italian sausage) but it would've been even better with the whole amount. I don't buy baking mix so I followed PaulaG's recipe for Baking Mix Aka "bisquick", and that worked really well. I screwed up and added the whole egg to the baking mix with the milk and mayo, but that didn't seem to hurt anything. Thanks for posting this quick, tasty recipe!
Excellent breakfast casserole. I made up the night before so I just popped in the oven for breakfast. Served with poached eggs and fruit. I used Jimmy Dean hot sausage and coursely chopped swiss. Received rave reviews.
