“This riff on the sausage/egg casserole was born tonight and caused us to fall off our chairs. Caught lightning in a bottle with this so will notate exactly what I did. NOTE: there are many recipes with a number of these basic ingredients. Since there were a few new elements, significantly varied portions and particular techniques used, I'm listing it as a separate recipe.”
