"I prepared this delicious dish the night before and baked it before leaving for school. l will certainly make this one again. The crowd loved it."
"I have been making this for years after seeing it in the Taste of Home magazine. It is one of the best breakfast casseroles I have ever eaten!"
"in ONE WORD : YUMMY (My grand child's word)"
"A quick tip for this recipe is to use canned, cubed potatoes that have been well drained. (Each can is about 1 cup) For some reason, they hold their shape and the texture is perfect. Other than that, there is absolutely nothing I would do different. It is delicious. Sometimes I DO add a splash or two of Tobasco sauce, especially if I'm using pepper-jack cheese. YUMMY!!!"
"Followed the directions, but used center-cut bacon and doubled the potatoes. I'm thinking that the potatoes could have been 4X and maybe reduce by one slice of bread. Could also get by with just 2 cups of cheese -- but all in all, this is a darn good recipe that offers lots of possibilities with variations!"
