It's a snap to put together this colorful casserole. I like to make it a day ahead, then refrigerate and bake the next morning. With ingredients such as sausage, eggs, cheese and peppers, it tastes like a strata—except it uses crackers rather than the traditional bread cubes. —Helen Clem Creston, Iowa

"My family thought this dish was just OK. I used cubed ham, and twice the amount of peppers and onions, but it seemed bland. The building blocks are fine, but next time I think using sausage and a sharper cheese, like cheddar or Swiss, would punch up the flavor better."

"I made these with ham and used egg beaters and it was very good. Will

add a little swiss cheese next time."

"I have made these before and have found it is best to refrigerate overnight. Also, leftovers are great cold too!"

"This is a delicious recipe! I prepared it the night before and baked it early the next morning. I took it out of the refrigerator 30 minutes in advance as the recipe suggested. The only adjustment I made was baking it 1 hour instead of 45 minutes. I found that the middle wasn't completely baked after 45 minutes."

"I haven't made it, but it sounds great! The only thing is, I can't imagine waiting all that time for breakfast, so I'm going to try it for a lunch dish when I have a few friends over - with the sparking wine, as suggested!"

"Does anyone know if this can be frozen? i haven't tried it yet, but it looks like a handy thing to pull out of the freezer on a Sat. morning!"

"Made this recipe for the first time for Christmas 2010. My family loves it, so it is a regular at our house. My recipe calls for process American cheese. I just use 5-6 slices cut up and lay 2 more slices on top. I also have maded with cheddar cheese and sauasge. Both are good. We do perfer the American cheese, since it is different from so many of Breaksfast casseroles in my collection. I usally serve it along with a fruit salad, sausage links and muffins."

"We love this recipe. It is so easy and quick to put together. I make some baked seasoned potato wedges at the same time. Add a fruit salad or just some sliced fruit, and dinner is ready!

I find this to be a very flexible recipe. If I don't have, or prefer not to use, sausage, I could add extra veggies for a meatless version. It also works very well with chopped ham, or crumbled bacon, instead of sausage. It's great with the process cheese as specified, but I also make it with shredded cheddar. Highly recommended!"
