Quick and easy. I used turkey breakfast sausage and it was delicious. I almost fainted when my husband asked for seconds lol ??

This casserole is one we turn to often! I make it for an easy weeknight dinner. The only change I make is leaving out the green peppers, but that is just b/c I'm not a big fan - otherwise leave them in!

My family has been enjoying this recipe ever since it was first published in 1998! Sometimes I substitute cooked sausage or ham for the bacon.

This got good reviews from the family that I made it for. They are Gluten Free, so it worked out well for that compared to a lot of breakfast casseroles that I make.

Made this for Mother's Day brunch. Everyone loved it, even my brothers' picky family. I usually leave out the dill. Really, really good and so easy.

I have made something similar to this but used Tex Mex cheese and seasoning salt for more flavor! It was such a hit in our house!

I make mine with jimmy dean sausage and add velvetta shreds to the mix. I am not sure about the dill, pretty much whatever you would put in an omelet you can make this casserole with. I also have cooked it over night in the crockpot on low...

It was ok, I tried to cut the recipe in 1/2, felt it was a little dry, next time I will also add more cheese for flavor
