Everything Bagel Breakfast Casserole Recipe
I have been a foodie since I was little. My mom and grandmother taught me to cook, learn my way around a kitchen and savor a fine meal. Another trick I picked up from them was how to feed a crowd with a casserole!
Casseroles Are A Way Of Life!
Since becoming a mom, I have made and shared a ton of casseroles! For the new parents who need a quick meal they can re-heat and eat, it is perfect. For a family get together, a church potluck or a cozy meal at home, a tasty casserole hits the spot!
A Family Tradition
My mother in law made her breakfast casserole every Christmas morning. Since she has passed, we have kept up that tradition. For a twist on her basic recipe, we use everything bagels to replace the bread, quality link sausage and lots and lots of cheese!
A Brand I Can Trust
When it comes to a brand of sausage I trust, that would be Carando®. Breakfast in our house is not complete if we aren’t serving Carando® Mild Toscano Italian Sausage Links or Carando® Ground Fresh Italian Sausage! You can find them in the fresh meat cases at many local retailers. And I love that! Fresh, not frozen is a big plus for me.
Authentic Italian Flavor
When I am cooking the links for a meal, I am on high alert for the family stealing one! Yes, they really are THAT delicious! We love their robust flavor, using classic Italian ingredients. And what is such a time-saver is that we can have authentic Italian Style meals in less time than cooking from scratch!
A Perfect Foundation For Any Meal
We love the versatility of the Carando Italian Sausage Link because they can be used for any meal, at any time. They are the perfect foundation for your favorite Italian dish. With high quality crafted meats with that authentic Italian flavor, any meal is off to a great start! Whether you are serving your family or taking a dish to the church potluck, be sure to include the Carando Italian Sausage Link products in your next meal!
