“For years my mom (Cathie) made this for breakfast every Christmas. Mom stopped making it when I moved to another state because my sister didn't like the sausage in it. Now I continue the tradition and make it at home every Christmas morning. This is a satisfying whole meal in one that you can prepare the night before and bake in the morning. Of course, the ingredients can be changed around to suit your taste. Bacon for sausage, sour dough bread for french bread or croissants, thyme for parsley or sage, etc. No meat, extra meat and so on. It is easy and so delicious and great for a crowd for breakfast.”
