"Isn't it about time for you to make your 'egg pie?'" my husband and sons inquire, using the nickname they've given this hearty casserole. It's nice enough for a special brunch and versatile enough for a satisfying family supper. —Patricia Throlson, Willmar, Minnesota

MY REVIEW

Awesome and super easy to make. Even made it the night before so in the morning I just had to put it in the oven and it was still great.

MY REVIEW

I made this today and it is awesome. I did tweek it a bit after reading some of the reviews. I added fresh bella mushrooms and some fresh spinach to the onions and peppers. I tossed the hashbrowns in some season salt to counter the blandness of the potatoes. I also used a casserole blend shredded cheese and increased the amount because we love cheese. This is going to be added to our Christmas Eve brunch this year. Very, very yummy!

Easy to assemble, but just rather average.

This was great! I made it as the main dish of a family brunch and it got good reviews. I substituted diced ham for the bacon, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The texture and taste were amazing. I would definitely make this again. It also reheats quite nicely in the microwave.

I am a TOH field editor and like this egg bake for its versatility and ease of prep! I like to add mushrooms and green onions or chives and some sweet red pepper instead of a green pepper-just like it more colorful! Definitely give this one a try!!
