“I always fix this casserole ahead when overnight guests are visiting, so I have more time to spend with them. Then, I simply add some toast or biscuits and fresh fruit for a complete meal that everyone loves. It also reheats well.” Pamela Norris - Fenton, Missouri

"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:"

"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."
