So, I realize this is more of a breakfast kind of thing, but I made it for dinner. I also cut back the original recipe quite a bit...she made 4 baguettes, I only needed 1. Maybe her bread loaves were smaller, or maybe she has a bigger family, not sure, but you can easily double or triple this if you need to.
Now, I cooked mine for 28 minutes, and when I cut into it, the eggs were still slightly runny...nothing too bad, they were definitely cooked, but if you don't want ANY runny eggs, then I suggest cooking this for about 35-40 minutes (check on it after about 35 minutes).
Also, I used the Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles just to cut back on prep time, but you can definitely use bulk sausage if you like...just cook it first in a pan as you normally would, breaking it into smaller pieces.
Overall, we really like this! It's kind of a pain-in-the-ass to eat since there's no real easy way to get this down...I tried a fork and knife, Heath just picked it up and ate it like a sandwich while Jesse used his fingers and tore it apart. Hey, whatever works.
Ok guys, I'm off to spend the last day of summer with my boy! He starts kindergarten tomorrow, so today we're just hanging out at home on this cloudy, rainy day watching movies. He's so excited to start school tomorrow, and I'm glad. I'm just gonna focus on trying not to cry when he gets on the damn bus.
