Egg and Sausage Strata

I especially like to make this breakfast dish when we have weekend guests. I fix it the night before, and the next morning I can sit, eat and enjoy their company. People often think I spent hours preparing it.

    I am so glad I found this. I had the original recipe clipped from the magazine years and years ago. I couldn't find it and decided to look here and you guys still have it.This is very good, easy to make. I like the do ahead foods so I just have to pop them in the oven Christmas morning. Thanks Taste of Home for your archived recipes.
