Reviews for Sausage and Cheddar Breakfast Casserole
"This is an awesome recipe. I've used ham in stead of sausage. I've even used hamburger buns and it's worked out well."
"My family loves this dish. I substitute venison sausage in place of the pork breakfast sausage."
"I make this recipe all of the time! It's one of my husband's favorites. One of my go to recipes (I hate to say it but I even have the recipe memorized). I just made it today for my family for breakfast. It is so quick and easy and a great way to use leftover bread!"
"I doubled the recipe and added some onion and bell peppers.... I was glad for the extra flavor from that, but overall disappointed in the blandness of the dish."
"I have made this several times. I vary the meats (ham, breakfast pork sausage, Italian sausage...almost anything you have will work). I like to use 3 slices of bread, for a firmer texture. Yummy."
"Okay recipe when you are in a hurry."
"This is an easy and quick recipe. This dish has an excellent taste and is very filling. I will make this recipe again. Perfect for breakfast."
"I made this during Thanksgiving Weekend; Even my picky eaters love it!! Now for us adults--I add onion, chopped sweet red peppers. Yes I have to make two pans--otherwise not enough to go around:) So easy! Thanks for sharing your recipe!"
"My family loves this dish. I like to put it together the night before so I can just pop it in the oven in the morning. I used maple flavored sausage in a pinch once. Now that is our favorite way to make it."
"really good, like a country breakfast quiche-even my picky 4 yr old had 3 helpings, thats saying alot"
"very good & easy-i changed quite a bit:used 1 hot dog bun torn,2 precooked sausage patties,cut into pieces, 1 slice american cheese, torn,2 eggs & 1 egg white, 1/2 c fat free milk.& rest of ing.. i sprayed a 2 qt saucepan with oil then added bread,sausage and cheese, turned on heat while mixing ingredients, poured over bread,sausage & cheese, covered and cooked on med. To speed it up i turned it when one side was brown, covered & cooked til done. it puffed nicely and tasted great."
"This is just the base I was looking for! Very good, I also added some chopped green onion and tomato. I didn't have Gorgonzola, I used cheddar instead. Very easy, simple and tasty! Thanks for sharing."
"I have made this recipe twice now. It is great for a quick evening meal."
"I made this for the first time for a party I was having. I had never had it before so it was either going to be a big hit or a big miss! Luckily, it was a big hit!! Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. They were surprised at how little ingredients are in it and how easy it is to make! I have one friend who doesn't like sausage, so she uses cut up bacon instead and always gets rave reviews about it. I, myself, love the sausage!"
"This recipe is perfect for 2 people. I substituted onion powder for the mustard and it was delicious also."
"I made this for Easter brunch at church. I made one pan with onions, and one without. There was not one single bite left over! I am wondering if I can premake this and freeze it so I can pull it out on those crazy mornings. It was easy to make, and it can be modified to include green peppers or onions, tomatoes, different cheeses, different meats...great recipe!"
"This quick, easy and delicious recipe is the start to a lot of my busy weekend mornings. My boyfriend LOVED it. Will double the recipe next time for leftovers."
"I substituted bacon and ham for the sausage My husband loved this. You could add onion and green pepper, too. I will double the recipe next time so there are leftovers. YUM!!"
