Reviews for Hearty Breakfast Egg Bake
"Tasted great but I personally like my potatoes on the side and the casserole just be egg."
"Can't go wrong with this one! I make it often; it's so flexible - different meats, add peppers, mushrooms, different cheeses, green onions/chives. Next time I'm going to add some fresh, chopped broccoli. Thanks for sharing!"
"I made this for a church prayer breakfast and out of about 10 breakfast casseroles this was the first one devoured. It was fantastic!"
"Great Casserole! I have made it several times already. I use Jimmy Dean precooked Turkey Crumbles instead of the pork sausage, non fat evaported milk and low fat cheese. I also add a can green chiles for a little extra kick. I make this, cut into serving size pieces and freeze for my husband to have for breakfast. I keep a couple pieces at a time in refrigerator and he heats in microwave. Delicious!!"
"I made this delicious dish this morning for breakfast and it is a winner. Definitely five stars and five thumbs up. This is going into my recipes as we will be having this again and again. Made very small changes - halved the recipe for the two of us, used square frozen hash browns instead of shredded and more cheese. Here is a link to my review and photos: http://community.tasteofhome.com/community_forums/f/30/p/894683/7752648.aspx#7752648"
"so good. definitely a keeper"
"I made this for Christmas (yesterday) and it was a hit! Everybody raved and raved over it. I cooked bacon & sausage on the side rather than including either one because some can't eat bacon and some can't eat sausage . . . therefore, for the meat, I gave them a choice of either or none. Since I didn't include the meat in the casserole, I did sprinkle a little kosher salt and black pepper over the layer of cheese - just a little. Even my 11 yr old niece loved it and kids aren't normally big on casseroles. Simple to make."
"Yummy!! Made it for a Boyscouts camp out. Made 2 batches one with Canadian bacon and one with Maple Sausage..I liked the one with Maple Sausage better. I had a few extra eggs and tossed them in as well. Baked them in 2 Dutch ovens worked amazing, and tasted yummy.. Will definitely cook again. Next time I may throw a few spoon fulls into flour tortilla and make a burrito ."
"Delicious! Trying to find a gluten free substitute for soup. Otherwise outstanding and easy to make. Hint to reduce the grease...put the sausage on paper towels after cooking."
"I wish people would stop making comments if they haven't tried the recipe or have no intention to try the recipe. This is not under the low-fat or healthy catagory, so if it is not up to your health standards or requirements, go to another receipe! By the way, a great recipe!"
"too much fat, cholesterol, and too much sodium."
"Our favorite breakfast casserole. Yummy! We make this almost every other weekend and the kids as well as adults love it!"
"I made this one year for a Christmas breakfast and while I thought it was just okay, the friend who ate it with me wanted the recipe. She has made it several times and thinks it is delicious."
"Serve to family staying with us over the Holiday. Everyone liked it."
"Simple and easy, but very good. This is the first time my 15 year old granddaughter has liked my Thanksgiving morning breakfast casserole. Her mom called and got the recipe from me so that she can serve it on Christmas morning. This one is is a keeper. Thanks!"
"I absolutley LOVE this recipe! I make it every time I have overnight guests! I never have leftovers! I whisk the eggs and milk together first, then whisk in the can of soup to make sure everything is completely mixed. We've also used colby-jack cheese and had great results!"
"I used bell pepper and onion hash browns and hot sausage. It was a hit!"
"Awesome! Made if for a brunch at work. Everyone raved about it. As easy, put together the night before and baked it before going to work. It kept hot in a insulated casserole carrier. My husband is already asking me to make it for him!"
"Its a keeper. Did add the green chiles also. Instead of shredded hash browns I substituted the southern style chunk potatoes. Terrific."
"The flavor of really good pork sausage is very important in this recipe. We all loved it Christmas morning and I'll definitely make it again. I didn't thaw the hashbrowns because in the fridge overnight they thawed just fine (besides it was easier to spread them around while they were still frozen)."
"This recipe was very well received by my family. It was a first for breakfast during Christmas morning and everyone enjoyed it."
"I made this for my family's brunch today (Christmas) and they all wanted the recipe. The only addition I made was to add green chilis. The sausage I used was also very good, so that helped. All in all, a delicious, easy recipe! Thank you for submitting it!"
"Hearty breakfast egg bake is a simple, easy meal to make and one my family makes any time we want a simple breakfast. It's so easy and so good, we will be keeping this recipe for a long time to come."
"I used half regular breakfast sausage and half maple and that added a nice flavor."
"Simple and good! Also easy to modify...you could jazz it up as much as you want."
"This dish tasted great. My husband made it, and he inadvertently added a whole bag of frozen shredded hash brown potatoes instead of measuring out only 3 cups. It tasted great regardless!~ Theresa"
"Wow! My family cant get enough of this casserole. Definitely a 5 star recipe as it is but the third time I made it, I tweaked it a bit,added chopped ham and mushrooms to the bottom layer and added a can of diced, Green Chili's to the egg mixture. I also baked it for 1 hour because we like it a little bit more browned on the top. I will be making this on Christmas Eve to pop in the oven on Christmas Day while my family opens presents. Absolutely Awesome!"
"It was good and was easy to make, but it tasted just like every other egg dish recipe. Not special enough to warrant 5 stars."
"I love to make this recipe the day before Christmas. I use a foil pan on a cookie sheet so you don't have to get it out ahead of time and it can bake while the family has coffee and opens gifts. It makes for a nice relaxing morning."
"Can this be frozen? I'd like to prepare some things ahead of Thanksgiving."
"Good Recipe! Although I use leftover potatoes and add mushrooms and use 9 eggs and no milk. My family devours it as soon as I say it's ready."
"Excellent recipe. Made this for Thanksgiving brunch. It was a hit with everyone. Will make this a part of our regular rotation."
