"This is now our go-to breakfast casserole. It is tasty and fairly simple to make. It can easily be put together the night before, and popped into the oven in the morning. We like to use sage sausage and added a layer of seasoned cooked hash browns before adding the eggs, and doubled the recommended amount of cheese." -- Cookie Momster
