"Pre-bake the tots if you want then crispy. The only change I made was to cook some chopped sweet onion and red bell pepper with sausage. Sometimes I add extra eggs to use them up (we have laying hens)."

"I thought it was just ok. I've had better breakfast casseroles. I ended up using only 1 pound of sausage, and I doubled the egg mixture."

"I have now made this recipe for an 8 person breakfast so I too increased the eggs to 6 and milk to 3/4 cup. Everyone loved it, but I still would like to know if it can be prepared the night before like so many egg dishes. Eileen"

"I just made this for Christmas brunch. Everyone liked it. Since I used a 13" baking dish, I upped the eggs to 6, the milk to 3/4 cup, etc. Next time, I'm going to increase the heat to 375 to see if the tots will get crispier."
