"My husband used to take this casserole, doubled, to office potlucks, and it was a favorite. I serve it at home as a special-occasion breakfast or even dinner for the two of us. Any leftovers taste just as good, reheated in the microwave," says Linda Hinkley of Florence, Oregon.

"Very good recipe! I made with spicy sausage and added pickled jalapenos as someone suggested. Everyone loved it. I also doubled this and served from a 9x13 dish."
