I’m not a big casserole person, but sometimes a good casserole just fits the bill. I knew this year I wanted something easy, yummy and filling for Christmas morning – that didn’t require me spending an hour in the kitchen in-between the fury of kids unwrapping presents and going to feed livestock. I knew I wanted a Breakfast Sausage Casserole, and what I made ended up being the perfect concoction. So perfect, in fact, my husband said, “Make sure you write this down, it’s the best you’ve ever made.” (Never mind it’s only the second I’ve ever made.) So here you go. Easy. Yummy. Filling. And I dare say would be good for any morning or special occasion or even weeknight for that matter. Just make it. And enjoy. The end.
