“This is recipe originally from Jimmy Dean. It is similar to the Rise and Shine casserole listed on this site but is seasoned and includes the bread too. Perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch or for a holiday or birthday morning. It is somewhat labor intensive in that you have to remember to refridgerate it but not too long and take it out before baking for an hour but not longer than 2 and you have to let it sit when you really just want to eat it right away. But it takes a lot of the prep out of chopping etc. So check it out.Thus preparation time includes refrigeration time, prep and letting it sit after baking. Serve this to family and friends. Enjoy.
