          My husband loved this recipe! I also made this for a little women's brunch and I got a lot of recipe requests. Thanks for sharing this, Cindy!

          Sounds delicious, but please tell me what half and half is? Is it some sort of cream? Also, is it mince you are using, or is it sausage, just cut up into pieces?

          Oh wow. This looks wonderful! It would be great for a brunch...I guess one is in order.

          I've made a lot of egg bakes in my time, but none with sun-dried tomatoes and mozzerella cheese- I think I need to try this one this weekend! It sounds so yummy!

          I am having a GNO dinner tomorrow and everyone is to bring a breakfast dish, so I found mine. This looks great!

          Sounds wonderful. I have a breakfast casserole recipe that was given to me by a neighbor. it's good, but it's mostly potatoes. I keep meaning to redo it and reduce the potatoes and increase the eggs

          Hi - sorry I am in Australia - what's "half and half?" and is sausage minced up meat? The recipe sounds wonderful for my hungry tribe. Thank you.

            Half and half is equal blends of whole milk and light cream. In the U.K. Known as half cream.

            Leisa,
            To substitute half-and-half you can:
            Mix 1/2 cup whole milk + 1/2 cup light cream
            or
            Mix 3/4 cup whole milk + 1/4 cup heavy cream
            or
            Mix 2/3 cup skim or low-fat milk + 1/3 cup heavy cream
            or
            Place 4 teaspoons melted unsalted butter in a measuring cup, then add enough whole milk to equal 1 cup

            Hope this helps!

          This sounds delish! I believe I will be making this very soon.
          We make something similar at Christmas, with dried bread cubes cheddar etc. added in and then it sits in the fridge overnight, ready to be popped in the fridge, as soon as the first person is up. AND gets the coffee going!!!
          Thanks muchly,
