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

"I enjoyed this casserole and served it for Easter breakfast at my house. We really liked the combination of the cheddar and Swiss cheeses. I did add some seasoned salt and pepper to taste, as I thought it needed some seasoning."

"I followed this recipe exactly and would never made this dish again. Everyone who tried it thought it was missing something and I agreed. Maybe green peppers or ground mustard?"

"The best ever! I add bacon and sausage this morning with onion and peppers. I used Jalepeno cheese and cheddar! Very moist too. A must try if you haven't!"
