"The apples really give it a different taste. I think I would have liked cinnamon in this as well if keeping the apples. I am going to try it also without the apples and with diced green onions instead as I think it would also be a good more traditional recipe. I like the small size recipe."

"This has become a family Sunday morning favorite. We use about 2.5 times batch into the 9X13 pan. It must bake about 45-50 mins in the pan. Also excellent with a little diced ham in it. We use fresh grated sweet potatoes instead of the frozen o-brien potatoes. We really like the flavor and the additional nutritional/diabetic benefits. Also excellent with Original almond milk in place of the regular."

"I tried this for one of our breakfast-for-dinner nights. The bacon overpowered the apple, but it was still a good dish. I heated what little leftovers we had the following morning for a 1/2 bagel sandwich and it was good that way too."

"Does anyone have the amounts to use, if you wanted to make this in a 9x13 pan?"
