I used a combination of bacon and sausage, but feel free to use all bacon or all sausage. You could even add some diced ham or some peppers and/or mushrooms. Feel free to mix it up!
We ate this casserole for dinner and leftover for breakfast. It was delicious both times. You can make this ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake it. I also think this would freeze well.
