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.

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, monkey bread, cinnamon rolls, and of course… mimosas!
