Sausage provides plenty of flavor in this hearty morning casserole shared by Teresa Marchese from New Berlin, Wisconsin. It's a great addition to a brunch buffet, because it's assembled the night before to cut down on last-minute fuss.

"cut the recipe by 1/3, added a cup of leftover brown rice to reduce bread, used 4 slices of sprouted grain bread and a pkg of bacon bits and 1# bulk turkey sausage to reduce the fat. Next time I'll add mushrooms."
