My favorite brunch dish got a makeover with egg substitute and lower-fat cheese. The lightened-up version still tastes delicious, but it won't weigh you down! —Alice Hofmann, Sussex, Wisconsin

"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."
