I try to cook breakfast for my husband's bank every week or two. This is their favorite!

What a wonderfully flavorful and hearty breakfast dish! The smoked sausage is a delight, so don't skimp, ya hear? Also, I can imagine this being just as divine with any number of cheese combinations. Grab your favorite varieties and get creative!
