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

MY REVIEW

"Changed this up just a tiny bit. Used 8 eggs, 6 cups hash browns and diced ham instead of the bacon. It was a huge hit for the guys at the cabin - nice hearty breakfast before a day of snowmobiling in Wisconsin's north woods! And the leftovers were terrific the next morning."

"Delicious! I made 2 dishes of this, one with ham and one with sausage. Added a couple extra eggs to one dish. Next time I make this I will also add a couple extra egg giving the dish a little more fluff."

"Delicious!! I added a handful of diced ham along with the bacon- just because. Really liked the hash brown base. Quick and easy to prepare. The family loved it- multiple requests to for the recipe. Will definitely make this again!!"

"This is the best breakfast casserole I have ever made. I cut into 15 pieces and freeze. Thaw in refrigerator the number of squares you want overnight, heat in microwave and you have a quick week day breakfast. Great served with grits and toast."
