Breakfast Sausage, Egg & Cheese Casserole

As promised yesterday, I bring you another breakfast casserole today. This one is more of the savory variety, with a heavy dose of sausage and cheese. For the last month or so I have been absolutely craving a sausage and egg muffin from McDonald’s. I have yet to give in to that craving, and this casserole totally satisfied it. Puffed pieces of bread, set with eggs, and full of sausage and melted cheese. It’s wonderful right out of the oven – browned, puffy and cheesy. It’s a great complement to a sweeter offering, such as the French toast casserole, so you can enjoy a piece of each! Yet another feast-worthy breakfast.

I have always wanted to host a Christmas brunch, maybe one of these days! I’m thinking a couple of breakfast casseroles, some scones and cinnamon rolls, and of course… mimosas!
