This breakfast casserole is a tasty combination of eggs, bread, sausage, diced tomatoes and green onions, and Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese. It's one of our favorite breakfast casserole recipes.

If you prefer bulk sausage, brown some spicy or mild breakfast sausage. Drain the sausage and sprinkle the meat over the bread layer.
