I have made this casserole twice now, the first time as written, it was delicious, but it lacked the full flavor of the eggs and cheese..but last night I made it again, and this time I used white bread and brioche bread, whole eggs, crispy bacon and full fat cheese...no low calorie anything in this dish..I baked it this morning and this time, there was no leftover..best breakfast casserole ever!
My family loves this casserole knowing it is very low fat. We use turkey sausage and brown it with red peppers and scallions. I also use different kinds of bread and layer it on the bottom. Fresh wheat bread was great. I try to fix once a week with slight variations. It is fantastic.
This is just like another recipe on Taste of Home, Cheesy Sausage Strata - and that one is much better with whole eggs!
This is a great recipe. I usually change it up a bit to be slightly healthier with wheat bread and use ground chicken or turkey. I also add a can of fat free cream of mushroom and mushrooms. It's delicious! And tastes great re-heated!
Very tasty recipe! I omitted the mustard, and added fresh spinach to the recipe. The kids loved it, and it worked as a quick meal before school.
I made two casseroles for Christmas morning breakfast. I made one sausage and one bacon. They were delicious and so easy to make (I did prepare the night before).
