"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

"Made this for Mother's Day brunch. Everyone loved it, even my brothers' picky family. I usually leave out the dill. Really, really good and so easy."

"I have made something similar to this but used Tex Mex cheese and seasoning salt for more flavor! It was such a hit in our house!"

"I make mine with jimmy dean sausage and add velvetta shreds to the mix. I am not sure about the dill, pretty much whatever you would put in an omelet you can make this casserole with. I also have cooked it over night in the crockpot on low..."

"It was ok, I tried to cut the recipe in 1/2, felt it was a little dry, next time I will also add more cheese for flavor"

"Made for Christmas morning and we were very disappointed. There was very little flavor except for the dill which just does not go well with eggs..yuck! Hash browns were limp & tasteless.. Would have been better just to make scrambled eggs with crispy hash browns instead. I don't understand the positive ratings for this dish."

"I just made this for the first time. LOVE it. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I made it exactly as the recipe stated....did not alter a thing even though I was a little concerned about putting dill weed in it. Love the green pepper/onion taste in the dish and the added texture that the hash browns add to it. I personally highly recommend this dish."

"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."

"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!"
