MY REVIEW

I made this for my teen son and friends; they approved. Super easy to put together. I used pepperjack cheese instead and it was amazing. This is my go to recipe from now on.

Very good - top browns very nicely in oven and the taste is perfect. (We love Asian Sweet Chili Sauce served with egg dishes like this).

MY REVIEW

It's a delicious and wonderfully filling breakfast casserole that I love making every Christmas for my family, and just a small portion of it is enough to fill a gigantic appetite. I love putting in hot Italian sausage, as my dad and I are big on spicy foods, but we have to tone it down for our family's sake.

It's my new "go-to" recipe. I's also thinking of adding fresh diced tomatoes and pepperoni slices and serving it as a dinner...

I've been using this recipe for 20 years - holiday breakfast & Girlfriend Club brunches !~ I use ground bulk ground turkey sausage to cut back on osome of the fat and pizza seasoning replaces the spices listed. I also use a good Italian or french bread. ALWAYS a hit ! Any leftovers can easily be reheated in the micro for 30-45 seconds. I serve with fresh fruit & Monkey Bread.
