  1. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 7x11 inch baking dish.
  3. In a bowl, mix cooked sausage, broccoli, and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, ricotta cheese, eggs, milk, pepper, and salt. Spoon the sausage mixture into the prepared baking dish. Spread the Cheddar and ricotta mixture over the sausage mixture. Sprinkle with remaining Cheddar. Arrange tomato slices on top.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Uncover, and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

I made this as a Christmas morning brunch for friends who had us sleep over on Christmas Eve; I made as much in advance as possible, bagged the cooked broccoli and cheese separately and lightene...

I changed this recipe around because I don't like broccoli. I added spinach, onions, mushrooms, bacon, more cheese, more tomatoes, and garlic. I loved this!! I will definitely make it again.

Loved this did everyone else. The only discrepancy was that it took much longer than 45 minutes to cook...closer to an hour and a half. Worth the wait!

This was a definite hit with my husband and house guests. Since tomatoes are not in season, I used slices of red, yellow, and orange bell pepper on top. Beautiful presentation! It did take ov...

Served this at my Easter brunch and was pretty satisfied. I wanted to put it into a 9x13, so used 12 eggs and a bit more milk. Even though we always drink skim, I use whole milk in a recipe lik...
