MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 28, 2013

I loved this breakfast casserole, the only thing I did different was cook the sausage, roasted red peppers, onions and spinach all together, then poured the egg mixture over it and then baked it. Now way was it "bland". My family loved it, and I will make it again.

I agree this was a little bland the first time I made this, did give it a go again and reduced the salt to 1/4 tsp. added 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese and 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes with the egg flour mixture, also garnished with diced tomatoes and avocado slices. Wonderful! My family of six loved it! Thank you

This was tasty but I found it to be somewhat bland. The italian sausage would probably be better as a hot blend or using country sausage might be better. It does look very attractive to the eyes.

After reading the reviews of this casserole, I am DEFINITELY going to make it. However, I have a question. The ingredient list calls for 'parmesan' cheese, the directions say 'provolone' cheese. Which one did you all actually use?
