Reviews for Sausage and Egg Casserole
"I have made this casserole for Christmas morning every year, for over 20 years. Yes, it is high in calories, and sodium, however, it is great as a holiday morning treat. One tip, you can use either unseasoned, or herb seasoned stuffing cubes in place of the bread. It is easier and so long as you keep in the fridge overnight,, the cubes soften in the egg mixture. My family prefers the herb seasoned cubes. Usually serve with pink grapefruit slices in homemade cranberry syrup on the side."
"no thanks... 633mg of sodium... in 1 serving piece of 248 calories - isn't what the doctor ordered!"
"I made this for Christmas Morning. Their is just the two of us, and I divided it into two smaller casseroles and shared with my Son and Daughter-In-Law. We all loved it and I will certainly make it again. Green peppers and onions would definitely add to the flavor. I used Jimmy Dean Sage sausage. It was awesome!!"
"Good but mine had a strong sausage taste could be because I used a Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage and the bread part was a little to mushy. Maybe use a thicker bread if I make it again."
"Wow! This was awesome! I made it Christmas morning, and it didn't soak for 8 hours overnight but it turned out just fine. To add a little more "zip," I put in some diced green pepper and some Pepper Jack cheese. I also used mozarella cheese instead of cheddar. I'll definitely be making this again. The whole family enjoyed it."
"So good and easy!"
"Excellent! What a great "make ahead" dish for company. I added diced apple, & a dash of nutmeg & sage. It was a huge hit! This definitely goes into my Favorites List."
"Very delicious and easy to make."
"Great recipe. I made this for a Sunday morning and added some green peppers, red peppers and onions. I like these recipes because they're basic and you can add what you want to suit your family's personal taste."
"This was fantastic! I tweaked it with hot sausage and green chili, since my husband is a bit of a fiend for spicy things. I didn't let it soak overnight, but I was using thin wheat bread, so it turned out fine."
