A nice alternative to the traditional bread-based breakfast casserole. Adding dried mustard might spice it up a bit. The spicy sausage definitely adds something. I baked it in a 9x13 pan because I thought there were too many ingredients for an 11x7.
Broccoli-Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Most outstanding breakfast casserole ever! The ingredients seemed a little unusual for breakfast but make a perfectly balanced and beautiful dish. Followed exactly, except for fresh broccoli instead of frozen. Chop the broccoli fairly small and it cooks completely without pre-cooking. Slicing the tomatoes thinly like directed makes a beautiful topping as well as insuring that they aren't too juicy during cooking. No flavor was overwhelming and the texture is perfect. Make sure to bake thouroughly and check for doneness by inserting a knife in the center that should come out clean. Everyone, child and adult, enjoyed this dish!

Yum! Hearty enough for dinner, too! The ricotta made the eggs fluffy and creamy, and the broccoli, while I couldn't really taste it, gave it great texture and color. Made recipe just as written...win!
