  3. Sausage and eggs? And veggies, all in a casserole? Count me in! Looks wonderful. And it'd go great with a cocktail. ;-)

  5. Very good recipe, Nee. It could be adjusted for vegetarians, too. I would have to substitute those veggie crumbles for the sausage. There are two vegetarians in the family. It would be ideal to serve when all the family is here.
