MY REVIEW

"Rating this recipe as printed. It came out very well. I especially like this recipe because it does not make a huge amount and does not use bread (gluten issues). Of course, it could be doubled. Very convenient to make the night before and bake the next day. It is a good "clean out the fridge" recipe. The flavor was a little bland for our tastes and that is the reason for 4 star rating instead of 5. When I make it again, I will use O'Brien type potatoes and a stronger flavored cheese. Very good basic recipe. Thank you for sharing with us."

"Made this for Christmas morning. It was easy and delicious. Based on some of the reviews I used a little less milk, maybe 10 ounces instead of 12. It was cooked perfectly after 45 minutes. I also substituted crumbled bacon instead of the ham because thats what I had available. Everyone loved it thanks for posting this!"

"Good. Easy to put together. Will try variations of it. Really needs longer cooking time. I made as directed, but was not done at 60 minutes. Way to liquid. Went another 1/2 hour, was nice a brown, covered with foil and cooked a bit longer. Also, as most should know, let set up before serving."

"This is my go to mix and match recipe. I've made so many variations using different types of potatoes, sausages, bacon, veggies, cheeses and it has always been a big hit. Endless possibilities for dinner, breakfast or brunch. A delicious dish to have fun with."
