I love a hearty breakfast from time to time and this casserole is a favorite. It combines all of the things I like…sausage, eggs, potatoes and, of course, cheese. The casserole is easy to make and can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours before baking making easy work of brunch/breakfast preparation.
Serve with fresh fruit, perhaps a pastry and good cup of hot coffee!
