I made this for brunch and what a hit! I used sharp cheddar cheese to give it more flavor. So good with the chunks of ham. Great for leftover ham but worth buying ham for!
A wonderful way to have a relaxing brunch for friends or family. I like to serve this casserole with grits and fresh fruit.
You can also vary the ingredients to suit your family’s taste. Next time, I think I will add some onions to the sausage as well as some green chili.
