A delicious, easy egg casserole
If this recipe is good enough for Brad Pitt’s family, then this tasty egg casserole is good enough for ours!
This is such a solid, classic recipe that can be changed or embellished to your personal taste. I like to add more vegetables to mine like onions and yellow peppers or you can make it spicy by adding some chili pepper. I also changed the meat from pork in the original to a lighter turkey sausage… you can even omit the meat altogether. As far as the bread goes, ideally, I like to use Challah bread, but you can use your favorite.
I love this recipe because you can prepare it the night before and then you don’t have to worry about cooking in the morning. I usually prepare it on Christmas eve and then pop it in the oven 45 minutes before we are ready to eat… that way I can spend the morning with my family! I usually serve this with a side of fruit or salad.
