As I believe, if you love cooking, christmas could be any time of the year. You make a feast when you want to. This recipe has very less preparation time and you can bake them while you prepare other dishes for the complete meal. My family, especially my kids absolutely love this casserole. What I love about this recipe is the flavour that gets soaked by the bread cubes. The bread is a perfect base for this casserole with the ground sausages, fluffiness from the eggs and the cheese oozing out, could your breakfast get any better ? Garnish them with some finely chopped parsley leaves and voila !

A perfect breakfast or brunch is ready, just the way we all love it.
