Bacon ‘n’ Egg Lasagna

My sister-in-law served this special dish for Easter breakfast one year, and our whole family loved the mix of bacon, eggs, noodles and cheese. Now I sometimes assemble it the night before and bake it in the morning for a terrific hassle-free brunch entree. —Dianne Meyer, Graniteville, Vermont

    This is so good. A great, different way to enjoy lasagna. I haven't made it in several years, but have been meaning to try it out on my kids.

    Very Good! This is my Christmas morning go to recipe as I can prepare it the day before then bake in the morning. Increase the sauce to 1/2 C. flour and 4 1/2 to 5 C milk) as there wasn't enough sauce. I use cheddar cheese or a cheese blend of choice instead of the Swiss for a more flavorful sauce and because Mike doesn't like Swiss cheese.

    My family loves this recipe. The leftovers, if there are any, are often fought over. I love it myself, the only issue I have is that it takes a while to put together.

    I was excited to try this recipe because I had never seen anything like it before. I thought it was ok, but kind of bland.

    After reading the reviews, I tried to add a little more zing by adding red bell pepper, Sriracha sauce, and extra cheese. I also used peppered bacon. Very rich...but very bland. I am glad I only made a half recipe. It has promise; the concept is good! It just needs a few tweeks!

    I used jar alfredo sauce and also made srambled eggs. Passing the recipe around work. Scrumptious!

    My friend has made this breakfast lasagna several times for staff breakfast. It is a huge hit every time and it's become a favorite at home for family brunch.
