    An easy breakfast or brunch casserole made with Italian sausage, Rice Krispies, onion, rice, cheese, and eggs. I especially like this recipe because it is a breakfast casserole that does not use bread in it. It has a great flavor and is quite hearty. It can also be made ahead the night before. Recipe Source:


    • 2-1/2 pounds ground Italian breakfast sausage
    • 1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped fine
    • 2/3 cup cooked rice
    • 4-1/2 cups Rice Krispies (save 3/4 cup for topping)
    • 1 pound shredded cheddar cheese
    • 6 eggs
    • 2-15 ounce cans cream of celery soup


    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
    2. Fry the Italian sausage and onions together in a frying pan. Cool and drain well.
    3. In a 9" x 13" glass baking dish, layer 1/2 of each; cooked rice, Rice Krispies (save out 3/4 cup for topping), sausage, and shredded cheese.
    4. Repeat with a second layer of each.
    5. Beat the six eggs and two cans of soup together and pour evenly over the top.
    6. Top with remaining 3/4 cup of Rice Krispies cereal.
    7. Bake at 325 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
    8. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.
