Reviews for Breakfast Casserole
"My family loves this casserole knowing it is very low fat. We use turkey sausage and brown it with red peppers and scallions. I also use different kinds of bread and layer it on the bottom. Fresh wheat bread was great. I try to fix once a week with slight variations. It is fantastic."
"This is just like another recipe on Taste of Home, Cheesy Sausage Strata - and that one is much better with whole eggs!"
"This is a great recipe. I usually change it up a bit to be slightly healthier with wheat bread and use ground chicken or turkey. I also add a can of fat free cream of mushroom and mushrooms. It's delicious! And tastes great re-heated!"
"Very tasty recipe! I omitted the mustard, and added fresh spinach to the recipe. The kids loved it, and it worked as a quick meal before school."
"I made two casseroles for Christmas morning breakfast. I made one sausage and one bacon. They were delicious and so easy to make (I did prepare the night before)."
