My inspiration for this dish came from Janet Scotts All in one Breakfast Casserole. As she suggested I used foods we liked & were on sale to cut cost.

To save time you should boil eggs, cook the sausage, & saute the veggies the night before.

I made this complete 9 X15 X 2 inch size casserole for about $1.25 per person. By buying reduced & sale items to save money.

This dish will serve 12 people easily depending on appetites. As Janet mentions it is ALL IN ONE, Meat, potatoes, Cheese & Eggs with peppers. You can't beat the flavors.

Great idea if you are having a crowd for Brunch .
