My mom started this recipe when I was just a toddler and used it up until she passed away and now I continue to use it for my kids and grandkids. It is very easy to make. Short time in cooking. it is good for breakfast, holidays or just a simple plain supper meal. The appearance is fluffy with a brown crust. Bubbly, very tasty. My family loves it any time.

  • To weezie2: as many slices of bread to fit the size pan you're using. I used 4 wide pan slices for an 11 x 7 glass baking dish. For my husband's pickyness I omitted the mushrooms, olives and green pepper. Used onion powder for the chopped onion and turkey bacon for the sausage. It could use salt to taste and I halved the recipe as well. It was kind of bland since it was lacking the flavor of the things I omitted.
