Does anyone know if this can be made a day in advance and refrigerated until morning? As suggested by other reviews I will add more bacon and cheese and maybe some scallions on top.

If there's one thing that bothers me it's a recipe that is soooo way off on the time it takes to cook something. This was NOT 40-45 minutes. It was more like an hour and 10 minutes. After 45 minutes the middle section was still liquified and jiggling in the pan. I added a lot more cheese, a lot more bacon, and topped it off with more bacon. The original recipe seemed like it wouldn't have the flavor that came from adding more of the ingredients.

Was a little on the bland side but hot sauce perked it up some. Was a hit with the people I served it to. Next time I will add more bacon and cheese. Very easy to prepare.

Made this as written and it was a bit bland to me. However it is a fantastic base recipe! Second time I halved the recipe, used an 8x8 pan, subbed half the milk for heavy cream, added a pinch of cajun seasoning and some ground mustard and pepper. Added two extra slices of bacon but didn't put those on until he last five minutes of baking. Reheats well! Going to try this with sausage next week. Thank you!

Delicious. Just one question/comment. Eggs were a little bit watery but seemed cooked. Suggestions?

It was great. I did add more bacon and cheese as a personal preference - sprinkled some cheese on top as well. I didn't have fresh chives so I sprinkled some dried chopped onions and freeze dried chives and it tasted good. Used nonfat dried milk as it was all I had at home. Great recipe thanks for sharing it with us. We ate it on Sunday then cut it up in squares in zip lock baggies and took to heat and eat at work. It was very good and a great quick breakfast for work days

This is my go-to recipe during the cold winter months! My family loves this dish, and I change it up by adding cooked sausage or diced ham. You can also make it a "western" version by adding sauteed onions and green peppers. Depending on your seasoning preference, you can add cumin, curry or Adobo all-purpose seasoning.

I add flavor to this old standby by using 1 t Lawry's salt & 1 t salt and skip the pepper. I omit the onions as well and usually put the cheese on top to melt. Delicious main dish and also great for cutting into squares or rounds for sandwiches (sausage-egg biscuits, egg and cheese croissants, egg bagels, even breakfast burritos. Very versatile and always well liked!
