Reviews for Cheesy Vegetable Egg Dish
"Outstanding dish!!! Will be making it again for guests this Christmas season!"
"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.~ Theresa"
"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!"
