My husband and I really liked this recipe. I cut it half because we just didn't need 8 servings. I used andouille sausage. I think next time I will use regular hash brown potatoes and add in my own fresh green pepper and onion. The frozen always comes out a bit mushy and I prefer the crispness of fresh. I'm not a huge fan of spicy foods but I used the correct amount of the hot sauce and it wasn't too spicy for me. The only other issue I have with this recipe is the temperature and time for baking. My oven runs hot so I typically set the temperature a tad lower than it calls for (I've been doing that for a long time, so I know how to offset this difference well). Despite changing the temp, the top of the casserole started to get crispy brown after only 22 minutes. I'll have to play around with it a bit next time.Even though the recipe needs a bit of tweaking for our preference, we really enjoyed this and I'll definitely make this again.
