Reviews for Contest-Winning Hash Brown Casserole
"A family favorite! Guests always ask for the recipe."
"This is a great breakfast to make ahead of time for kids going to school. It could use a little kick, but I have one kid that won't eat spicy. You could always add some salsa while eating."
"I made this casserole tonight for dinner. My husband and I thought it lacked something. It is very bland. Also the cooking time is off. It took 65 min in my new oven. Not sure I would ever make this again."
"I made this for a brunch at church. I thought it was great as it is. My husband would prefer less potatoes and more ham. I will try with seasoned sausage next time."
"Best breakfast casserole that I have ever made. I have even made it a day or so before and still turns out. I prefer bacon over the ham but everyone I have served, loves it!"
"This is a fabulous recipe and I have made it for 5o girls a camp and for church breakfasts and everyone raves about it!!!"
