Sausage Egg Casserole

Submitted by: Janice on May 8, 2010

This recipe is a nice base recipe for a make ahead brunch or breakfast. We like this dish made with Pepper Jack cheese too. I have made this for so long I can’t remember where it originally came from. It’s scribbled down on the back of one of my kids old homework papers. Toss in a few mushrooms, onions, green peppers or just about anything that would go in an omelet. I would love to see a photo of your success with this recipe.
