Reviews for Slow Cooker Overnight Breakfast Casserole
"Ladies--you hit the nail on the head.read the recipe, and if there is something you don't like, can't eat, not on your diet, then just pass it up, go on and find something you can and will eat. You are knocking some ones well thought out work, that is not very kind. If it ain't your style, then forget it, move on. Stop messing up the recipe."
"This is close to a recipe i've made before. Putting it in the crock pot the night before is GREAT. It feeds a crowd and its ready when you wake up. Great for overnight guest!!! This recipe is a keeper."
"Since we're empty nesters, I cut it down to half. Not being a fan of cilantro, I eliminated it, period. Used a one pound roll of sausage (hot) all I had at the time and layered ingredients in a 4 quart slow cooker, but as directed. Great recipes inspire cooks and one need not fear making changes to suit dietary needs or special tastes. This is a great recipe!! The leftovers? Wrapped them in a warm tortilla with a dab of sour cream for breakfast burritos. Awesome. This is a keeper and screams for a brunch with family and friends!!"
"I used turkey sausage and my whole family loves it!"
"@ IENON: Omit the potatoes if you are worried about it being low carb and quit you're whining already! I also hate when people rate a recipe and change this and add that so the recipe is NOTHING like its original format... Geez, just saying!I have been making a recipe similar to this for years and it is delicious. I have never tried it with cilantro and green chiles, but I will now and I'll even try the crock... Never done that before!!"
"Why does there always have to be at least one person that gives a low rating because of their own dietary needs or wishes? Nowhere does it say that the recipe is low carb. Do these people give non-fiction books a low rating because they like fiction? Reviews like that are not helpful at all. It's not even a review! I'll be back with a review once I make it and load up with carbs!!!!!!!"
"I agree with Sempersmom...I hate when someone gives a recipe a low score because it doesn't meet their dietary needs! When I look at ratings I want to see if something tastes good. I can decide on my own whether or not I want to make it based on the ingredients!"
"Why would anyone rate something they haven't even tried? If you're watching your carbs, move on. You don't have to give a negative rating. This casserole is delicious and it's great waking up in the morning smelling it ready to eat."
"sounds like a lot of carbs and since you are not listing will not try. Why do you have listings for some and not others.???????"
"@ Aleigh076My thoughts are to cook them frozen. Otherwise the recipe would say "one 30 oz bag of frozen shredded hash browns" THAWED."
