Adjusting this recipe to make it gluten free is simple. Just switch out regular bread for gluten free bread. Also choose a breakfast sausage that is gluten free.
This recipe is so forgiving and flexible. You can switch out the bacon for more sausage or visa versa. Use a different kind of cheese. You can even throw in some diced veggies ( peppers & onions are my suggestions). Basically once you have this base recipe in your hands you can customize it to your families likes or by what you have on hand in your fridge.
The breakfast recipe is all inclusive. It is delicious with some fresh fruit or fruit salad. A bowl of yogurt is also a great addition.
If you have any leftover casserole store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze this in an airtight container for up to 2 months. Just thaw and reheat to enjoy.
