Overnight Egg Casserole

This is my go-to breakfast dish when hosting overnight guests for the holidays. Because you prepare it the night before, all you have to do is pop it in the oven in the morning. —LaVonne Propst, Sweet Home, Oregon

    I made this casserole for dinner last night and found it to be quite tasty and satisfying. I made some changes so I could use things I had on hand...... I used fresh country sausage instead of Italian sausage and I used more cheese than called for in the recipe and I didn't use the chicken broth...... I also mixed all ingredients together (instead of layering) and sprinkled extra cheese on top of the casserole..... then I put it in the fridge for 4-5 hours before baking. My husband and I both liked it ..... will be making it again but may use cream of celery or cream of chicken condensed soup instead ...... may add sauteed mushrooms as well. One drawback was that it was a little "juicy" on the bottom..... a problem that might be solved by using more bread ....... or maybe using croissants instead so it tastes like our favorite breakfast sandwich we get at the local coffee shop. 4 stars for sure!!

    I used hot sausage, and added seasonings ... thyme, Mrs. Dash Table Blend, black pepper, and Morton Season All Seasoned Salt. I thought it was pretty tasty. It will be fun to play around with the recipe and make a few other changes..

    There appears to be a lot missing from this recipe. Very bland!!!!

    This was the worst breakfast casserole I have ever tasted. My husband and I ate one small piece and had to throw the rest in the garbage. I am a veteran cook, so it wasn't me!!
