Reviews forDeluxe Breakfast Bake
"Very tasty as is. No way this could be "soupy" unless using the recipe wasn't followed properly. I like just a touch of 'hot' so added cayenne to the hashbrowns and it gave some good color and spice. Good recipe."
"Not enough eggs to give it an eggy taste. The soup just made it soupy, it didn't blend well with the hashbrowns or make anything particularly creamy. I'm game for anything new and interesting, and I love the cheesy potato casseroles made with cream-of-soups, but this just wasn't very good. Out of 5 of us, only 1 liked it. Otherwise I'd have rated it a 4."
"VERY good. I used seasoned crouton as onion and garlic no longer exist; I used reduced fat cheddar; 95% lean diced ham; 25% reduced sodium soup; and about 1/2 the amount of potatoes called for. I had cubed hash browns in the freezer and shredded would end up crispier or, the potatoes could be eliminated. I changed the serving to (8 to) 10 because this would never serve 12 people."
"I took this as a brunch dish for Bible Study. Everyone loved it! It was very tasty and very creamy. Did I mention delicious???"
