I used to make this on special occasions. You know, like weekends!! My girls loved it. My youngest daughter just asked me for the recipe so she could fix it for her family. She also told me that I should write a cookbook. I love her way of thinking, so I thought why not share. I hope you all enjoy it!!

This is a quick and easy breakfast casserole everyone will enjoy. Bell pepper, onions, and sausage add a lot of flavors to the dish. This casserole combines everything you love about breakfast. The cornbread is a great vessel for all the yumminess!
