Sausage and Egg Casserole

I love egg casseroles that you make the night before, refrigerate and bake the next morning.  This casserole recipe was given to me by my friend Victoria.  I have changed it a little bit.  The original recipe calls for 1 pound sausage browned, I use Jimmy Dean Hearty Sausage Crumbles.  This is amazing it comes fully cooked, you just pour it out of the bag, no browning the sausage...I hate to brown sausage!  I also changed slices of bread to using Vienna Bread.  I get a loaf and slice it myself.  In this casserole I also did not toast my bread and the bake was a little more wet than in the past when I toasted it.  Nothing like the smell of breakfast baking in the kitchen on a weekend morning.
