Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Rated as 4.58 out of 5 Stars

"My mom has always made this for us on Christmas morning, and since we only have it once a year it makes it even more good. It is so delicious, and everyone enjoys it! When I double the recipe I use 1 pound regular sausage and 1 pound sage sausage."

This is a good basic recipe but I think it needs a little revamp. Here is the revamping I did.... I used 1 cup of Half and Half instead of 2 cups of milk (too soggy with that much milk) I used...

So tasty, so easy, so great!! I've made this three times (for a houseful of company each time), and it's always a hit. (It's also really nice to be able to visit in the morning instead of stand...

I have made this for several years now and update my review accordingly. I used to make various changes, but honestly, the original recipe is the best. I doubled the recipe, and as the author ...

A huge hit on Christmas morning, and special brunches at our house! Very hearty, and works just as well with 12 ounces of the reduced fat sausage in place of the pound of regular sausage. Be sur...
