Reviews for Bacon and Eggs Casserole
"Made this as written and it was a bit bland to me. However it is a fantastic base recipe! Second time I halved the recipe, used an 8x8 pan, subbed half the milk for heavy cream, added a pinch of cajun seasoning and some ground mustard and pepper. Added two extra slices of bacon but didn't put those on until he last five minutes of baking. Reheats well! Going to try this with sausage next week. Thank you!"
"Delicious. Just one question/comment. Eggs were a little bit watery but seemed cooked. Suggestions?"
"It was great. I did add more bacon and cheese as a personal preference - sprinkled some cheese on top as well. I didn't have fresh chives so I sprinkled some dried chopped onions and freeze dried chives and it tasted good. Used nonfat dried milk as it was all I had at home. Great recipe thanks for sharing it with us. We ate it on Sunday then cut it up in squares in zip lock baggies and took to heat and eat at work. It was very good and a great quick breakfast for work days"
"This is absolutely delicious!"
"This is my go-to recipe during the cold winter months! My family loves this dish, and I change it up by adding cooked sausage or diced ham. You can also make it a "western" version by adding sauteed onions and green peppers. Depending on your seasoning preference, you can add cumin, curry or Adobo all-purpose seasoning."
"I add flavor to this old standby by using 1 t Lawry's salt & 1 t salt and skip the pepper. I omit the onions as well and usually put the cheese on top to melt. Delicious main dish and also great for cutting into squares or rounds for sandwiches (sausage-egg biscuits, egg and cheese croissants, egg bagels, even breakfast burritos. Very versatile and always well liked!"
"this was a horrible recipe! I even added more bacon for taste, but no help. i'll never make this again, especially wasting 18 eggs!"
"I made it with lot more bacon and double cheese and it was a huge hit. Very easy. Will definitely make again."
"Made this this morning. Didn't have the green onions so I left them out. Mixing the sour cream smooth was a bit of a challenge, I wonder if I should have used a mixer? I would mix the milk with the sour cream separately next time to see if that helps. I cut the recipe in half and used a 9 x 9 pan. Baked perfect in 45 minutes. I would add one more slice of bacon next time (3 instead of 2 for a half recipe). Not as good as the brunch casserole recipe I inherited from Mom, but it is lot easier to make so it is a keeper!"
"I used 12 eggs, no bacon/green onion and some more seasonings. Very light and fluffy - and nice to have an egg bake without bread in it!"
"Excellent! I added a 1/2 lb of cooked bulk sausage. It was easy and yummy!"
"This is yummy - my oldest son is a vegetarian so I cook bacon (sometimes sausage) and serve it on the side rather than adding it to the mix - then everyone's happy."
"***** Haven't a chance to make this yet but it sounds delicious, and easy. Could I use turkey bacon? My daughter's family don't eat pork. Thanks"
"So simple and so good.! I have been making this for years. - since it was first published in 1995. I don't change a thing.. It is delicious as written."
"Best Ever!!Fast, great taste! Crowd Pleaser! I whipped the sour cream and gradually added eggs. Even let it sit overnight. Next Sunday am, just stirred and added cheese and lots of bacon on top ! Big Hit!!"
"Finally an egg casserole that doesn't have bread in it. Very flavorful with the sour cream, cheese, crispy pieces of crumbled bacon and a little onion. Will definitely be making it again."
"Wonderful - easy and good!"
"I made this casserole for Christmas morning. My family absolutely loved it! My husband keeps asking me when I'm going to make again. So simple to make and so tasty!"
"Very Good. Added thawed Potatoes O'Brien."
"I made this for my family and it was wonderful and my daughter in laws wanted the receipe. Will make again!!"
"Now this is good and a bit different than the breakfast casserole everyone has a recipe for. Served this with fresh fruit and banana nut bread over the Christmas holidays."
"WOW!!! THIS IS SOOOO GOOD! I MADE IT FOR OUR XMAS GET TOGETHER W/ MY DAUGHTER IN LAW AND FAMILY! I WILL DEFINITELY MAKE IT AGAIN!! & I USED THE RED & GREEN PEPPER THAT MADE IT LOOK VERY FESTIVE!!!"
"While this was easy to make, it was rather bland."
"I made this for Christmas morning and everyone raved about how fluffy it was. Absolutely delicious. One tip, I would stir it really well about halway through and I needed to cook it about 10-15 minutes longer, plus I added the whole package of bacon.. Awesome!!"
"Very good and easy- I cut it down to half and baked in an 8x8 pan. Bonus that I had all the stuff on hand with the exception of bacon, I used bacon bits and it was still very tasty! Will use again"
"My husband said this recipe is a keeper"
"I made 2 pans of this for our "Poor Friday" breakfast at work. Everyone raved about it and asked for the recipe! I didn't think that something this easy could be this big of a hit!"
"made it for brunch for friends and one of them couldn't stop eating it, yum!rainbowflower"
"I have always called this Baked Bacon and Eggs. This was one of my sons' favorites when they were growing up. I always added sausage or scrapple."
"did the same, but added a pound of cooked maple sausage with it."
"This was delicious! I did add a pound of bacon, red and green pepper and I made it the night before, too. Otherwise, I used the exact recipe! Thanks"
