Reviews for Amish Breakfast Casserole
"Cooking 1 pound of bacon and a medium onion together does not work. Onion burns before the bacon is crisp (on medium heat). Do them separately or start the bacon well before adding the onion!"
"My mom has made this for years and is the "go to" recipe when all of the family is over for breakfast! EXCELLENT!!"
"I used to make this several years ago. We really enjoyed it."
"A definite keeper! I've made this for gatherings of both family and friends. This recipe is HIT and I make it just as the recipe identifies. Guests always ask for the recipe."
"I have two breakfast casseroles that I traditionally make and this one is hands down the favorite. Based on the good reviews, I used my Sunday School class as guinea pigs and made this recipe because it is enough to feed a group. There was not one bite left and many request for the recipe. I did put together the casserole the day before and took it out the next morning to bake. I needed about 5 minutes more baking time (45 minutes total). Also, based on some of the other reviewers suggestions I added a small can of diced green chiles which added perfect flavor. Overall this dish is a winner."
"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."
