Amish Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Hearty breakfast bake eaten during a visit to an Amish inn. When I asked for the recipe, one of the ladies told me the ingredients right off the top of her head. I modified it to use breakfast sausage in place of bacon. From Beth Notaro: Kokomo, Indiana. Originally published as Amish Breakfast Casserole in Quick Cooking May/June 2002.
