This dish is so versatile and can really be made in a variety of ways. Growing up, I was a fed a Midwestern diet with lots of meat and potatoes, so this bacon and sausage dish will fit right in.

All you need is breakfast sausage, bacon, bread, eggs, cheese and a few other ingredients to make your morning a little more special.

Plus soaking it all together overnight really lets the flavors mix.
