The test kitchen dramatically improved this hearty breakfast’s nutritional profile for Alice, but kept its core flavors and ingredients intact. The lightened-up dish still tastes decadent, but now it won’t load you up. Alice Hofmann - Sussex, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 11, 2014

"I like to make a brunch casserole each year for Christmas brunch. I like to try a new one each year. This year I chose this one and we really enjoyed this one a lot. I did use all egg substitute instead of eggs and the substitute. We all enjoyed this casserole and I will make it again."

"The recipe sounded very good. I decided to try. My family didn't particularly care for it since it was bland. Next time I may substitute sausage for the bacon. I also had to cook it almost an hour at eventually 400 degrees in order for it to set."

"The hash browns kept this very moist. It was good breakfast dish for overnight guests."

"A question? Why do you have to use eggs AND egg substitute? Why can't you use all egg substitute and cut some cholesterol?"

"My husband is diabetic, but he hates knowing he's eating like it. He loved this casserole so it's a keeper in our house."
