MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2013

This was very hearty and fantastic. I am a vegetarian so I used Morning Star sausage patties and crumbled them up. I served this for dinner with fruit and bread. The leftovers were even better

I used Jennie-O's breakfast turkey sausage to make it even healthier. I omitted the mushrooms since my husband does not like them and used 2 onions. I had no egg substitute home so I used 12 eggs. YUM!

I made this using hot pork breakfast sausage and it disappeared! Great.

The only thing I would add to this recipe is to line your baking dish with crescent rolls. Makes it even more delicious, but great as is.

This was very delicious. I prepared it for dinner with cinnamon bagels on the side. My husband particularly loved the Turkey sausage. It looked like way too much liquid, but turned out perfect!
