Giddy Up And Go Breakfast Cobbler – It’s probably apparent by the title that my little cowboys helped name this breakfast cobbler casserole. In it, I use a spicy sausage that will most definitely put a spring in your step to start your day or make a tasty addition to your “breakfast for dinner” menu.
If you prefer a more gentle awakening, you can, of course, substitute the same amount with a milder breakfast sausage. I’ve made this dish using all eggs, and also a mixture of whole eggs and egg substitute, with equally delicious results. All the things you love for breakfast, served in a casserole.
