This could easily become your family favorite. I know from the first time we tasted it, we made it one of ours. There are many things you can change about this recipe including making it without meat or use ham instead of sausage, corn flakes instead of rice chex. It is simple, delicious and always a hit. A great church supper dish or take it to your next family gathering and be sure and print copies of the recipe because people will ask for it. This recipe tastes even better the second day... if you are lucky enough to have some left over! You can file this under breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner..
