"I can't believe anyone would this a one star rating simply because the recipe makes 24 servings and their's is a household of two! Either alter the recipe for the amount needed (you can google recipe divider for help) or make the full amount and freeze it in single serve size corning ware....or even both!"

"This is one of the best breakfast casseroles I've tried (I cook for my church, and we do a breakfast/brunch thrice a year). The Italian flavors make it unique, and all we get are compliments. It's easy to double or quadruple, too."

"My son was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, so I've been looking for low-carb recipes for family dinners. This was a great choice, and very low-carb, as well! I left out the mushrooms to suit my family's taste, but it was still easy to prepare and delicious!"
