"This was very spicy for me but my boys loved it. Next time I will use mild sausage instead of hot and just a dash of red pepper flakes. Get your glass of milk ready!"

"This sounds delicious, but WOW, 12g saturated fat per serving?? I would think a lightened up version would be just as good ."

"This recipe is quickly becoming our traditional Christmas breakfast! Unlike "overnight casseroles" that you prep ahead, but still have to remember to move from the fridge to the counter to the oven, I throw this together Christmas Eve just before hitting the sack and it's ready and waiting in the AM! The flavors blend well, and (at least for me) the potatoes maintain their texture, even when cooked a little longer than directed in the recipe. To make it more kid-friendly I go with mild sausage, halve the amount of chilies, and skip the red pepper. This is an easy dish that is well worth the effort."
