    OMG this recipe is exactly what I have been looking for. I also added chopped green chiles to the casserole also. Definitely a keeper! Thanks!

    The is a very filling crowd pleaser! The top is crisp and the inside is light and airy. I didn`t fride overnight just let sit for one hour and baked. We had it for dinner. This can be eaten at any meal. I used 3 cups cooked, sliced hot sausage. A bunch is a bunch is a bunch! So I used 1/2 cups sliced green onions. The shredded cheese was 3 cups. Good stuff!

    I was about to make this when I noticed it's mentioned in the recipe but, surely, you're supposed to cook the sausage before adding it to the casserole, aren't you?

    This is fantastic! I made it for Christmas breakfast and about four times since. Everyone loves it, and it is SO easy. The last time I made it, I made it even easier on myself and used unseasoned croutons so I didn't even have to cut the bread. (They get plenty moist and soft) Also, this time I let it set for just 15 minutes before baking and it came out the same. But I have to say, knowing I can leave it overnight is a huge help when stressed for time. Thanks for the recipe!

    I'm glad you posted this Nimz! I was searching through breakfast casserole recipes to see if anyone had already posted this one. I have been making this recipe for several years and it's wonderful. I'm not sure when this originated but I found the recipe posted in a local church cookbook. I always make this Christmas Eve and pop it in the oven Christmas morning, the house smells heavenly while this is baking! The only substitution I make is using gluten free bread cubes. If you haven't tried this recipe it is definately a crowd pleaser!

Made some tremendous friends that I still think of often. I'll continue coming here because my recipes are here and so many more that I tried over the years as a member. It's just a tad boring now and just another recipe site like all the rest. Sad.
