The casserole was great! I used 1.5 lbs of bacon instead of the sausage, added three green onions, mixed it all the night before and refrigereated overnight. I baked it at 375 for 40 minutes, the first 15 covered. I took it to a church breakfast, and they loved it! I'll definitely make it again.

This meal was TERRIBLE!! It did not take only 20 minutes to cook, more like an hour. I don't know which part was supposed to be "Quick and Easy", but it wasn't. It took longer than 10 minutes to prepare and the eggs were runny. It was also way TOO RICH and greasy. I would definitely not recommend this recipe to anyone, especially if you have high cholesterol!!

I increased the eggs to 16, added 8 slices of day old bread and tossed the sausage/bread mix lightly with the egg mix. I also added 5 T milk, 1 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper to the eggs. I used 2 c sharp cheddar in the egg mix, and topped it with another c of shredded cheddar/monterey jack blend. I used pam non stick cooking spray to coat the pan, but think a light coat of crisco shortening would have been better as some of it stuck a little. I baked it for 25-30 minutes instead of the 15 indicated. Will feed 9. My gang loved it!

My family REALLY liked this. We substituted bacon for the sausage (just because of preference) and it was SO good! As we discussed it though, next time we'll probably add a few extra eggs and maybe toss the mix around a bit just so there aren't so many crusty bits of bread otherwise this recipe is a keeper!

We have updated this recipe to include cooking the sausage before it goes into the casserole.

The trick with this recipe is to use COOKED meat. Brown and drain the sausage before adding to the other ingredients. It does take more like 40 minutes to bake and was a little too cheesy for my taste...Of course my kids LOVED all that cheese. We have used a similar recipe to this using bacon and it was even better. Just substitute browned crumbled bacon for the sausage and proceed as instructed.

This is a great recipe and a favorite with my family. My mom has made this for breakfast when we had company and for other special occasions. The only problem we had was the cook time. It spent at least 15-20 extra minutes in the oven to allow the eggs to firm up. Otherwise it's great!

The Cook time and Bake time are not correct on this. But once you bake it for long enough it is a really good recipe. You need to brown your sausage or bacon and that takes more than 10 min. to prep it all, so just be prepareed to allow some time. I like to make it at night (prep) and put in fridge overnight so it all soaks in the bread. then take out and back in the morning. I covered with foil for 20 min. then uncovered for 20 min. and that seems to bake perfectly. I used bacon instead and only 12oz. it was very flavorful with that much bacon. also about 1/2 less cheese. Will make again this way.
