We enjoyed a hearty breakfast bake during a visit to an Amish inn. When I asked for the recipe, one of the ladies told me the ingredients right off the top of her head. I modified it to create this version my family loves. Try breakfast sausage in place of bacon. —Beth Notaro, Kokomo, Indiana

"This breakfast casserole was delicious. I cooked it in the cast iron skillet I cooked the bacon in. Then served it with sliced avocado and tomatoes."

"This sounds wonderful. Does anyone know if it can be put together and then frozen for later use?"

"I have made this several times, and it is so good. I took it to an Easter brunch we had at church, and there wasn't even a crumb left! I got asked for the recipe a lot.

I agree with andreasmom2u, Mary needs to make the recipe before commenting."

"Mary, did you even make this?! It sounds like you didn't based on your comment. If that's the case, you have no right reviewing it. This is a wonderful breakfast treat. Please keep your negativity and baseless commentary to yourself."

"This sounds good but way too many fat calories from the cheese."

"This was great! I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese. Yummy, everyone except my daughter enjoyed it, but she hates almost everything."

"Made with sausage instead of bacon. Did not thaw hash browns and made the night before. Refrigerated overnight. Very good!"

"Everybody loves this recipe! I don't thaw the hash browns if making the night before. I just mix as instructed and put in the refrigerator. Since everything is cold I add 10 more minutes to baking time."
