“Assemble the ingredients the night before, and bake this casserole in the morning. Stand back and wait for the compliments. I've made it with fat free cottage cheese, egg substitute, and reduced fat sausage; the taste is still wonderful!”

This recipe was great. I made it for Easter breakfast and it was a big hit! I did change the recipe a little...used 12 eggs, 1 lb. of sage sausage, and I chopped up 1 large green bell pepper and 1/2 a large onion and sauted them instead of using the green onions, mushrooms, and canned peppers. I also used 8 oz. of shredded sharp cheddar instead of the 16 oz. of jack cheese after reading the reviews that it was too cheesy. I used a pastry cutter to combine the flour mixture to make sure it wasn't lumpy, and it turned out wonderful! I'll definitely use this again. Thank you!!

My priority was trying to find a "do-ahead" egg recipe, the night before--that DIDN'T have bread in it (as my other entree dish was eggnog french toast w/ cranberries and apples...we Certainly didn't need more bread!!) I made this sausage egg casserole for a large Christmas brunch--and it was "rated" by 10 people of various ages, 12 to 80. Everyone Raved about it - the flavors were wonderful!! And... everyone wants the recipe - which to me, is the HIGHEST compliment ~ Thanks Linda, for sharing!!

This is insanely good. didn't make it low fat, but would try cause I can imagine it would still be good. used whole 16 oz. ground breakfast sausage. had to replace 1 can of jalapenos for 1 can of chilies (still good with a little kick-I didn't mind). looked weird adding the crumbles of the flour to the egg mixture but once it baked up, it was very good. husband asked if there were biscuits in it. make sure you let it sit for 10 minutes or else it'll be too loose and hard to dish out. I also did let mine bake for maybe 10 minutes more cause it's had no browning on top after first 50 minutes.
