0 Breakfast Casserole

This recipe is a family favorite and a lot easier to make than quiche! It is a good way to use up any of your bread, especially if it is older or stale. Just remember to make it the night before if you want to enjoy it the next morning!

You can use sausage or bacon. I love thick sliced bacon...

This is so tender, so light...it just melts in my mouth...

Look at how puffy and golden this is!
