Reviews forAmish Breakfast Casserole
"Served this for guests and everyone enjoyed it. I used hot turkey sausage instead of bacon and Monterey Jack cheese instead of Swiss. I seasoned the eggs and threw in some red bell pepper because I had it on hand. I made it the day before and did not thaw the hash browns per another reviewer's suggestion. Worked great. Next time I'll add some diced green chiles or hot peppers to spice it up a bit more. Really good!"
"I made this for Saturday dinner and my son and I like it. I substituted sausage for bacon. The next time I think I might add green pepper. Definitely a keeper."
"I made this and it was a huge hit. Substituted sausage for bacon since I didn't have bacon. Added chopped up red pepper instead of onions as well. Served with homemade biscuits and fruit. Will make again."
"Recently made this one; it was very good. Will definitely make again."
"The whole family loves this! When I've brought this dish for potluck gatherings, literally EVERYONE asks for the recipe."
"This is one of our favorite recipes. We like it with ham...good way to use leftovers. I'm going to do what one other reviewer did, and try ricotta cheese this time, since I have some I need to use. Thanks for recipe."
"Very delicious. I cut the recipie in half and used an 8X8 baking dish. I assembled it the night before and popped it in the oven this morning."
"Cooking 1 pound of bacon and a medium onion together does not work. Onion burns before the bacon is crisp (on medium heat). Do them separately or start the bacon well before adding the onion!"
"My mom has made this for years and is the "go to" recipe when all of the family is over for breakfast! EXCELLENT!!"
