Amish Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

"Great recipe! I added chopped up broccoli , sausage and pepperoni slices. Great flavor!

I have made this twice and my husband loved it. Makes for great leftovers too!"

"This is a great recipe. I added diced green chili's. But don't think it originated with the Amish as they don't have electricity to keep frozen hash browns. They live very frugally without electricity."

"OK Easy to make. Not a strong flavor. Bacon was a nice change from sausage but maybe could use some vegetable ."
