Reviews for Hearty Egg Casserole
"Got great reviews from my mom's group that I attend. I left out mushrooms and doubled spinach. Takes a bit longer to bake then expected (45 minutes easy in my oven. More if other dishes are also baking at the same time)."
"This is a great recipe for potluck brunch at church! Be sure to add the time for baking, as it has been omitted from the recipe. 35-45 minutes @350 or until knife comes out clean."
"I loved having this recipe as a guide line. I needed to make something with eggs and ham and I couldn't find a recipe, this recipe was great. I used half sausage and half ham. I didn't have any spinach so I used brocoli instead I didn't have the heavy whipping cr. so I used whole milk and put some crm chz to make it more creamy. It turned out very well. I can't wait to make it with all the real ingredients. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Very easy to make and everyone loved it!"
"Can this be frozen?"
