This breakfast bake is a snap to prepare. It's perfect for a brunch buffet or when out-of-town guests stay the night. Full of bacon, cheese, hash browns and eggs, the all-in-one dish is a hearty crowd-pleaser. —Margaret Edmondson Red Oak, Iowa

"I really like this. I use half as much cheddar and it still tastes great. Next time I will try to save time by using pre-cooked hash brown patties to use as the crust. I also use a carton of egg beaters in place of about 7 of the eggs (again to save time). Still tastes great."

"My girls request this as their special birthday food! I also make it every Christmas morning. This time I made it with the hash brown patties that you can put in the toaster, as the bottom layer. I toasted them up a bit and made a single layer in the bottom of the casserole dish, breaking up to fill in spaces. Turned out great and save cleaning up a frying pan!"

"I actually made this for a dinner.

I used half a pound pork sausage instead of the bacon. It was awesome! All my kids loved it! My 4 year old, who I usually have to force feed asked for seconds. This is definitely a new fave."
