This potluck pleaser showcases mouthwatering Wisconsin cheddar cheese. I first made this egg bake for an after-church breakfast. The big pan disappeared in a hurry!—Genny Derer, Madison, Wisconsin

"Question: recipe says 4 BUNCHES of green onion. Is this correct? So like 20 green onions (usually 5 in a bunch)?? That seems like an awful lot!! I haven't made this yet so can't give an accurate rating for now...."

"I love that this recipe is so healthy, easy to make, and tastes great, too! My family wasted no time in enjoying almost the whole dish in one sitting!

I actually waited to top the egg bake with Parmesan until just minutes before it was finished baking through, and it turned out great!
This recipe not only tastes good fresh, but the leftovers taste great for breakfast the next morning!"

"This is one of my "go-to" recipes for our weekly Sunday brunch! I like to bake this in a 13x9-inch pan for thicker slices."

"Instead of whole eggs, I used the egg whites and I also used skim milk. This recipe turned out great! I will definitely make it again!:D"

"I cut the recipe in half....and added a few slices of cooked bacon (crumbled) for a quick brunch; my boys enjoyed it and I liked that it uses fresh spinach and not frozen! It was easy and went great with fresh fruit and muffins."

"I made half of the recipe in a smaller pan and used vidalia onion and dried parsley instead of what was called for. I turned it into a panini...put a piece of this, added a couple slices of crisp bacon, and heated it on sourdough bread on an indoor grill."
