Wake up to a good breakfast...

I like to cook....really I do...I  like to eat it too! SO I try not to cook the really good stuff too often because we all know the really good stuff is usually really fattening. Why is that? LOL

Earlier in the summer I cracked out the church cookbook and made my friend Miriam's breakfast casserole. She says that she serves it to her family on Christmas's their tradition.

 I have had breakfast casserole before, but I had never made one. I decided to try it out on Zach's band. They were spending the night at our house so that they could get up early the next day to participate in a talent search contest. I wanted to send them out with a good I made the casserole the night before just as the recipe suggests and tossed it in the oven early the next morning. Zach told the guys that his mom was making a breakfast casserole, which they said a "casserole?" BUT when they smelled it cooking they asked where breakfast was and they all loved it.

It's definitely a recipe that has been added to my "keeper" list!

The ingredients
Spray the pan

Layer the white bread
Crack some eggs

Brown the sausage
 Pour cheese over the bread

Measure up the milk

Drain the sausage

 pour the milk into the eggs
put the sausage on top of the cheese

The next morning put it in the oven....and the aroma will wake up your crew...and breakfast will put a smile on their face...
