I'm a cook at a Bible camp, and this is one of my most popular recipes. Everyone who tries it raves about it. The one that touched me the most was when a 10-year-old boy asked me for the recipe so he could have his mom make it at home.—Elsie Campbell, Dulzura, California

MY REVIEW

My husband loves this, it is so easy and can be tinkered with to taste. We made it for a church lunch and it was a wow dish, no leftovers here!

Awesome! I used a bunch of leftover sauteed peppers & onions for the veggies and totally omitted the butter. Tasted fantastic.

I followed ingredients and directions exactly as stated. Result: fabulous aroma, golden brown appearance, light texture, and perfect blend of flavors. We served today at a Teacher Appreciation Brunch. Everyone raved, and the pan is empty :)

MY REVIEW

Very good flavor BUT the cooking time is off. I've made it twice and it's taken twice as long to cook as stated. I just halved the recipe and doubled the cook time and bingo - great dish for brunch or dinner. I like to serve it with hashbrowns and fresh fruit. Delicious!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2012

Very good casserole. I cut down the butter to only 1/2 a stick, not a full stick. I used zucchini that I had grated and frozen last summer. Worked well. Didn't miss the butter. Got a lot of compliments on the dish.
