"I found that this recipe lacked flavor. Based on other reviews, I used o'brien potatoes and added salt and pepper to the eggs thinking that would help but it didn't really seem to make a difference. I also added an extra egg, a little extra milk and double the amount of cheese but the potatoes seemed to overpower the dish to the point that I barely tasted the bacon or the cheese. I really wanted to like this dish since it's easy to put together and makes a lot but I doubt that I will try it again."

"Great basic recipe but improved with the addition of more eggs, cheese and cream."

"Made a couple of alterations but turned out great full of flavour. I use 20 oz of Potatos o'brian vs. hash browns and added some chives, garlic, and onion powder."
