Reviews for Amish Breakfast Casserole
"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."
"So simple and tasty!"
"would prefer that people not preach their own opinions that refer to ingredients. all can read the recipe and understand and decide if it's to their liking."
"Very good. I added green chili's as well, and it was awesome.I think the negative people are real downers and takes away from the fun of this site. Please everyone.....be positive."
"My grandsons love this casserole. I have to make 2 for the 6 boys! Always a hit! I use 1 1/2 pound drained sausage, and a dozen eggs for each casserole and more cheese and potatoes. One casserole doesn't feed a dozen people."
"Used sausage instead of bacon. Added mushrooms and green peppers. Love this recipe!"
"It looks good, but I can't have the cheese. Why does everything have to have cheese? What can I use in place of it?"
"Really great breakfast dish! I like to add green chilies along with some salt and pepper."
"Added green chilis and chopped red pepper. It turned out really good!"
