    GreyhoundX3's Note:

    For years my mom (Cathie) made this for breakfast every Christmas. Mom stopped making it when I moved to another state because my sister didn't like the sausage in it. Now I continue the tradition and make it at home every Christmas morning. This is a satisfying whole meal in one that you can prepare the night before and bake in the morning. Of course, the ingredients can be changed around to suit your taste. Bacon for sausage, sour dough bread for french bread or croissants, thyme for parsley or sage, etc. No meat, extra meat and so on. It is easy and so delicious and great for a crowd for breakfast.

      This casserole was pretty good. I really enjoyed the flavor and it was definitely easy enough to make. I had to add 50% more egg mixture to mine because it didn't cover all the bread at first even after soaking a couple hours. I"m not sure if my sourdough loaf (16oz) was bigger than the one the recipe uses. I felt like then end product had a little too much bread in it. Next time I would cut it down. I used thyme for the seasoning, added about a 1/4 of bacon crumbs. I had to cook it about 50 min. because the first time the center was still mushy. Overall it was good. I will probably try this again and tweek it a little. I want to try letting it soak overnight instead of just 4 hours.
