Amish Breakfast Casserole Recipe

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
Reviewed Nov. 13, 2014

"This is so tasty. The last time I made this, I used breakfast sausage, and I really prefer it with bacon. I like the fact that it doesn't have to sit overnight in the fridge. When I have a crowd for breakfast , this is the casserole that I make. The whole family loves it. I prefer this to the one that doesn't include the cottage cheese. One piece makes you want more. Addicting!"

"Really great! Made a few substitutions due to what I had on hand. Used both bacon and crumbled sausage, frozen diced onion and peppers, and Monterey Jack for the swiss cheese. Omitted the cottage cheese, not my favorite and a few dashes of hot sauce. Will be my go to casserole for any meal or that special breakfast/brunch. Thank you!"

"Great casserole & loved every bit of it. For the one/s who said this was tasteless, maybe you don't know how to cook, so you should start taking cooking class 101!!!"

"The whole family loves this casserole. Nice for when you have a houseful for breakfast. Very easy to make and I like the fact you don't have to let it sit overnight. I've made it with bacon several times now. Next time, may try with sausage."
