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 :)
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!
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.
I made this for a church brunch. It is the best egg dish I have ever tasted.It got raves from everyone that tried it. I am making this for our family Christmas brunch, Christmas Day.
You can make it the day before you need it, refrigerate it and warm it in the Microwave on Med. high.
It tastes just as good warmed over.
