    Is the bread raw or cooked?

    I have have been making this for our Easter brunch for the past four years. It has always been a favorite, and the best part is that leftovers can be reheated in the microwave for a quick breakfast on a busy morning.

    I found this in a magazine years ago and finally tried it. I cheated with pre-cooked sausage links which made this come together even faster. What I really loved was being able to use up some old stale English muffins. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you for posting!

    Easter? What about every day?:):) My husband likes a good breakfast, and instead of getting up and doing eggs and bacon, I like to keep a casserole handy to microwave quickly. This one's right up his alley, and will become a favorite.

    I clipped the same ad from the paper and I've made this twice so far with great results. It's easy and convenient, I whip it up the night before and just pop it in the oven the next morning. I used hot dog buns left over from our Memorial Day BBQ instead of English Muffins and it came out perfect.

    I also found this in the weekend paper and made it for my office Easter Brunch. It was a HUGE hit. I was lucky to get the last tiny piece. I'll be making this one again!
