Reviews for Night Before Casserole
"I have made this many times. It's so easy to suit your taste! Want spicey add peppers, want sausage not ham, go for it. When I used sausage I precooked it. Then crumbled it over bread. Try diffetent cheeses like I have. Swiss cheese adds a lot of flavour too. The possibilities are endless!! Thank you !!"
"I made the recipe as as written, but left out the mushroom sauce. It was easy to make, but we found it somewhat lacking. The concept is great, but there wasn't enough flavor for us. I guess we just prefer bit taste. I WILL make this again, but next time I will either add more ham and mustard, or perhaps I will make it sweet and replace the ham and mustard with jam and cream cheese. Also, I might cube the bread. I used my own homemade bread and it wasn't square so didn't come out like the pictures. Regardless, I will make it again. Thank you, Reminisce, for the recipe. 8~)"
