A Casserole for Breakfast That Is Prepared the Night Before

I found this recipe in an old recipe book I had. When I saw it, I wondered why I haven't thought of it myself. It was easy and had all the ingredients I love and use for breakfast.

In this day and age when most women are out there in the workforce and still need to prepare a hearty breakfast for the family, this is the perfect remedy. The word "breakfast" when broken down is break-fast. The fast which has been since the night before needs to be broken so the body can be re-fueled in order to work properly for the rest of the day.

I know that now men also know how to cook and prepare breakfast if the wife has to start work earlier than he does, this is one that the husband/father will love. So it's good for everyone. I love to make cooking easy so everyone can do it. Even college students that live on their own and would love a good breakfast would have this simply because it's prepared the night before and simply put in the oven the next morning.

Also, it's a delicious little meal and the ingredients can be substituted for others that you might like more. Hope you give it a try, you will enjoy this, for sure.

      Hey this is so great and I just made up a great one too! It is even good cold and I really am not that crazy about eggs but I put no meat in mine and yours has sausage which I so love. Planning to make mine for my son when he comes home in a couple weeks and I just may make yours too. I have eggs too many! Three chicks can sure make a lot of eggs! lol Well 90 a month!

      I may publish my recipe in a few days if I feel like making it again that soon or just wait til my son comes home which is just a couple weeks.

      I just made one of your recipes a week or so back. Need to go see which it was and report it to you!

      You are a wonderful cook I know! I am just a once in awhile cook!

      Sharing your recipe everywhere!
