  • I just made that sausage-hash brown casserole, and it was INCREDIBLE. One of the best things I’ve ever eaten, honestly. Thanks for the recipe!

  • i love this dish so much, so good but also so easy to customize…i am from NM, throw some greeen chiles in there or chorizo!!!! mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  • I’m saying that eating a single serving (like the video suggests) of this for breakfast and sitting around all day after ONCE is not going to make the person who ate it fat. Especially if done during the winter, because your body’s gonna burn a lot of those calories to stay warm.

  • breakfast bread pudding. looks ok. i think this would be good if you have family staying at your house for the holidays and want to make an easy breakfast for a crowd without too much fuss. its not for everyday or one person you morons saying oh thats why you all are fat. geeeeeez. lol.

  • Obviously it’s not the healthiest choice, but that’s not necessarily what everyone expects when they go to a casual holiday gathering. I don’t see how having ONE serving of this casserole would be detrimental to one’s health, even if they did sit around all day afterwards. That’s like saying that eating just one king-sized snicker bar would give you diabetes.
    The whole point of this dish is to feed a bunch of mouths and save time. No one is saying to eat this every single day by yourself.

  • Sitting on your ass all day is also asinine…. The ability to do so after eating such things in the morning is quite asinine too. It speaks of a lifestyle choice indicative of thinking this is generally fine…not just exceptionally. One heavy meal starting a nothing day… Ive been fat and capable of such behavior. Now I’m mentally and physically incapable of eating that many calories unburnt….all day. It would be like drinking a pot of coffee and laying down for a nap.

  • Great recipe. I’ll try it. A variation on the Christmas Morning “Wife Saver” (politically incorrect name). Lay bread in a casserole dish, then pemeal bacon and grated cheese on top, more bread. Pour a mixture of eggs, mustard, finely chopped bell peppers and a bit of milk over the top. The next morning put crushed cornflakes on top and drizzle with melted butter. Cook at 350 for an hour.

  • You don’t like what you see? Instead of condemning everyone who watches this video who isn’t fed up with how unhealthy it is as fat slobs from your high horse just because you’re healthy, you could just not make it.

  • I’ve never done the French toast version. I love the home fries and sausage version. It’s easy and very satisfying for a hot breakfast that is easy to make. I’ll have to try the French toast casserole sometime….it looks Great! Thanks for sharing.

  • I’m from Alaska… Burning warmth calories and sitting around all day inside have nothing to do with one another. Especially clad in ugly sweaters for the season. The one who can sit with this in them in any amount for hours is the one that physically can. Which isn’t good culture. But normal.

    Were just going to have to agree to disagree 😉

  • No man…actually I’m quite an able bodied….man…man.

    Care to know why. No ‘hearty breakfasts” and the day on my ass drooling. Woo Hoo. Not saying it wrong just that its not sane.

  • hi joanne.  first god bless moms everywhere who do what they do.(not just for the holidays either) second, great easy b/fest. i like hassle free anything and this is easy breeze to put together.  being italian we have fish on xmas eve so this would be fine to put together after dinner.   good idea.   enjoy,  ralph xx

  • Son coming home from college on Saturday and totally doing this for Sunday morning for the entire family so we can prepare for Christmas! Most likely will do it again on Christmas Eve…. better yet, New Year’s morning!
     Thanks so much!  Angelina

  • If you eat this first thing in the morning and sit on your ass… you will know how I got fat works. Which will make you sad. and as self loathing pacification you will do it again.

    If you have this for breakfast your hungry ass better go running.

  • Is it crazy that I am almost 32 and I have never had eggnog….I have no clue what it is or what it tastes like lol! But both of these looked delicious!

  • It’s Christmas morning and this casserole is in the oven. It is going to be my favorite casserole! Smells awesome! I did add a little extra cheese. TFS! I also have your cookbook! Merry Christmas!

  • Why wouldn’t an Okie like grits? Oklahoma is pretty southern. (Although, I, too, usually think of the Southeast when I think of “the South.”)

  • Thank you for the great recipes! We tried them both! One on Christmas Eve morning and the other on Christmas morning, and they were absolutely delicious! My 4 boys especially loved the sausage and hashbrown one! We will definitely be making these again!

  • Begin from California I would onion jalapenos green and red bell pepper now that would rock and I’d sub the white bread for biscuits canned would be best for this dish

  • Great Recipe And The Casserole looks Delicious!!!! I will be making this but im using turkey sausage instead of Pork still should taste great

  • Just took this out of the oven and ate a square while it was piping hot. I did a few things differently:
    I used spinach and tomatoes and ground breakfast sausage. I greased the pan and put it in the fridge while I cooked the ingredients, not a morsel was stuck to the pan. I didn’t have greek yogurt so I used mayonnaise. The eggs came out divine. It tasted sooooo much better than the fast food breakfasts. Never will I ever eat that garbage again! I’ve cooked two of your recipes in one day and shared the food and now people are asking for the recipes. I’m just sending them the links to your page.

  • Absolutely changes nothing. If you had a helping you need to burn it off if you have any sense of health. Obviously if you attempted to eat the whole thing you would die… or wish you had.

  • LOVE this video, Joannethe casserole looks great but most importantly the cause is so nice and clearly dear to your heart. Cute sweater btw!

  • That looks delicious!  In the South, we’d serve it with a side of plain or cheese grits.  Perfection!  There used to be a pizza restaurant in downtown Tampa that would make wonderful breakfast pizza…scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon or ham or sausage, mushrooms, spinach…whatever you’d like in an omelet on a nice thin crust.  Our office much preferred it to doughnuts.

  • Wow, it looks so tender in those starting shots. My mouth is seriously watering. Maybe I will try this next week if I can manage to break away from your egg muffins. Have you frozen this before, by chance?

    I like your mushroom and bean suggestions. I think I’ll try that too. Amazing tip to shred the mushrooms. Thanks for such great recipes! I can’t wait for more!

  • Delicious recipe!! Made this for Christmas morning and have been making it ever since. My family loves it. Thanks for sharing����

  • These are both so simple but look delicious!:D i think my kids would just devour the savoury one! Hope you have a great Christmas!

  • You still don’t get it, do you? You’re still telling me that sitting around after eating this once will deteriorate one’s health? It’s ONE time, man. So I can’t splurge and pig out during the holidays without being sucked into turning fat? I have to plan out my caloric intake and work out every single day, without ever stopping if I want to have “any sense of health”? You’re incredibly condescending. Just because you’re not into it doesn’t mean everyone who partakes in it is a slob.
