Recipe Notes

You can also use sausage in place of bacon. If you use sausage, cook in a skillet until almost done, then add to casserole. It will finish cooking in the oven.
Add other vegetables to this casserole! Suggestions: Mushrooms, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, tomato, onion.
You can leave the cayenne out entirely if you don't care for it.
