Weekend Round-Up

Ever Ready helping out Pooh with some breakfast/brunch ideas. 
 Wild Rice Sausage Potato Casserole
Cook's Notes: This hearty brunch dish loaded with sausage, potatoes, wild rice and cheesy goodness welcomes your guests to a brunch or a weekend gathering. It can be assembled the night before making it easy to bake the next day. As a time saver cook the wild rice and sausage ahead and chop peppers, onions and garlic. Cover and refrigerate dish until baking time. The recipe serves 4-6 and it was made in an 10 inch round baking dish.
And note it's a Winnie the Pooh approved breakfast item.
