Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Breakfast Sausage Casserole
Introduction: Breakfast sausage was new food culturally different that has been introduced to me when I came to the USA. According to Wikipedia, Breakfast Sausage (or country sausage) is a type of fresh pork sausage usually served at breakfast in the United States. It is a common breakfast item in traditional American "farmer" or "country" breakfasts, as it originated as a way for farmers to make use of as much of their livestock (usually pigs) as possible. Often, scraps and trimmings that would ordinarily have been fed to a dog or discarded were instead ground, seasoned, refrigerated and later consumed by the farmer as an inexpensive, high-protein morning meal. Here is an interesting breakfast dish that is prefect when need to feed a large crowd of people.
