  1. I’ve made quite a few different breakfast casseroles in the past, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites! It baked up perfectly in the time given and made such a filling and hearty breakfast. I loved the flavor, especially with the additions that I made of green onions and red bell pepper. I served it with some juice and parsley garnish.
  2. I've made this for years and it's a HUGE FAVORITE of my Saturday morning breakfasts with my friends. I saute' Italian hot/sweet sausage, crumbled, onions and peppers, diced in butter then mix into the the cubed Italian loaf of bread. Mix mozz, romano and other misc. cheeses I want to use up into scrambled eggs/milk or heavy cream and pour over the bread mixture in a huge porcelain casserole or individual casserole dishes. Bake and devour. Lots of salt, pepper and granulated garlic goes into the eggs too. SCRUMPTIOUS
  3. This breakfast casserole is soooo good! We halved the recipe today and made it for lunch in an 8" baking dish. I had a leftover baguette that I used for the bread. My add-ins were baby bella mushrooms, green onion, and a little leftover diced tomatoes that needed using up. I used hot Italian sausage as that was what I also needed to use up. This was really good and I would definitely make it again. Thanks, Slatts!
  4. The office devoured this, so it must be good! I halved the recipe and cooked in an 8X8 with great results. I used green onions as the additional ingredient. For ZWT.


  1. It looks great, you should add it to immediately
  2. Added 4 sliced green onions and ½ of a red bell pepper, chopped. I found 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon pepper suited our tastes just right.
