It’s so handy to fix this hearty breakfast casserole the night before and refrigerate it until morning. “It was given to me by a co-worker and has turned out to be a family hit!” relates Kathie Deusser of Church Point, Louisiana. “I adapted it to our tastes, adding onion, potato and Cajun seasoning. We often invite family and friends to share it with us. Serve it with your favorite fruits, coffee and juice.”
