I make this recipe a couple times a month. I vary the ingredients a little, different flavored sausage or cheese, seasonings, etc. IT's always delicious and comes out perfectly. Good for weekend guests too.

This recipe is great! I used it Christmas morning when I had family in town and it was a hit. We also use a variation at church for our Easter Breakfasts which are again a big success.
