@kkeppler - You're right. This is much better with bulk breakfast sausage. With Italian sausage it tastes like dinner and with breakfast sausage it tastes like breakfast. Makes sense.

This recipe is awesome. Someone (either a relative or a friend or both) asks me to make it every year.

I liked everything EXCEPT for the Italian sausage which didn't taste breakfast-like to me. I'd make it again but with regular or spicy breakfast sausage.

Make sure that the sausage does not contain gluten!

I have a kid who won't eat tomatoes, so I added chopped fresh mushrooms instead. Delish! I was even able to serve to my friend with Celiac at a brunch I hosted -- gluten free.
