The Breakfast Casserole is a delicious and wonderful breakfast. This is nicely baked and golden on top with the sausage meat, eggs, milk, cheese, bell peppers, green onion and seasonings. The great thing about breakfast casseroles is that it can be prepared the night before and placed in the refrigerator. Then the next morning just cook it in the oven for 45 minutes while you get ready.

This Breakfast Casserole looks very delicious ! I love the generous usage of cheese. However, the preparation is quite elaborate. I'll try this in the weekends. I cannot make it during weekdays because I'm dead tired on weeknights to prepare it. :) offense ! :):)
