Reviews for Sunday Brunch Casserole
"<p>I give this recipe 3 starts as is but 5 stars with the modifications I've made to it.</p><p>I made this dish for a Christmas breakfast party last week. It sounded yummy and people seemed to enjoy it, BUT I/we found it to be very under seasoned made as is. This recipe was screaming for salt! :) Since I think this dish had such great promise, I made it again for dinner tonight with some modifications, and it was absolutely, positively delicious!</p><p>Here are the adjustments that I made: Season (to taste) the pork with kosher salt and black pepper while browning. Use 1 3/4 c milk and 1/2 c white wine. Use 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard. Also add a pinch or two of kosher salt to the egg/soup mixture.</p><p>The cooking times were way, way off both times I've made this. 45 to 55 minutes at 350 is not nearly enough time; the casserole was runny and not cooked. Both times I've made this dish, I baked it at 350 for 60 minutes then 375 for the last 30 minutes and let it stand for 15 minutes before serving.</p><p>I would make this again and again using the modifications I've made. I've even shared this recipe with two people with the modifications; that's how much I loved it tonight.</p>"
