"So nice to have a breakfast main dish that can be cooked at home, driven to a potluck, and still be hot! It is a bit on the bland side though - next time I'll cook some mushrooms and bacon pieces on the stove and toss them in when I lift the lid to stir. Might benefit from additional spices too - oregano maybe?"

"Haven't actually made it yet, but I'm going to a potluck brunch. Sounds perfect if I double it and bring some wraps to make breakfast burritos."

"I had all the ingredients but I didn't have the 4 hours, so I baked it at 350 degrees for 1 hour, the last 15 minutes uncovered. We really liked it. I will try it with frozen spinach next time as an alternative."

"This comforting dish is super easy to throw together and tastes fantastic. I did use 1 1/2 cups of cottage cheese and 1 1/2 cups of ricotta cheese and everyone loved it!"
