Mother’s Day Breakfast Recipes

Sausage and Potato Breakfast Casserole

In the event that you, like me, gravitate toward breakfast casseroles with eggs, then this recipe’s for you. Not that there’s anything wrong with eggs – I love them! But I found this sausage and potato breakfast casserole a delicious and hearty new option. My husband and I love sharp cheddar cheese to be sure. However, feel free to switch to a favorite cheese of your choice or a favorite blend. Since my husband is diabetic, I’m looking forward to trying chopped cauliflower in place of the potatoes. Let us know in the comments below about any substitutions or additions you make and how you like them.
