We have made this a FEW times now, and we always make recipe changes such as we shred fresh potatoes or we use TVP flavored (chicken or pork) crumbles and we use the 13 X 9 dish BECAUSE the smaller dish takes longer than the recommended time to bake. Be prepared to adjust the time and even use foil cover to keep the top from cooking too much. Lots of fun making this dish because you can NOT ruin it. BTW/ if you shred your potatoes fresh, place them in water with a drop of white vinegar to keep them from turning brown. Enjoy the preparing time, because EVERYONE will enjoy the eating and you will be pleased. Mamacíta Edíth is the "cook" and I am the food prep and the clean up guy.

Easy to make and delicious. I used chopped bacon instead of ham. I also did not use the onions so my kids would eat it. I will keep this recipe handy.

We all LOVED this dish! I prepped it all the night before and just baked the next morning. We didn't have frozen hashbrowns so I used my own shredded potatoes. I think this recipe has a lot of options - add veggies like mushrooms or asparagus, try a different meat like turkey, change up the spices a bit. Easy and delicious!

I prepared and baked this recipe EXACTLY as it was written, boy was i in for a surprise!!! After the 55 minute bake time, i removed it and discovered the center was still uncooked and runny! I put it back into the oven and baked for another 10 min. STILL RUNNY!!! I put a thermometer in the oven to confirm that the temp was correct and baked for another 10 min. STILL RUNNY!!! I turned the oven off and tossed this THING into the microwave and it took two more 10 min. "Nuke blasts" to finally get the center firmed up enough to eat, and as expected, the entire perimeter was WAY overcooked and inedible. What a complete waste of time and good ingredients! I sat and thought about this huge failure and figured that if this was not crammed in such a small dish.... possibly use larger dish so the mixture isn't so THICK it might possibly COOK all the way through and more EVENLY. I will never know if that is the answer because I will never waste my time and food to find out! This was my experience with this Hog slop of a recipe, I'll never try it again, good luck everyone, have a happy day.

I really liked this. I made it exactly as stated. The flavors of the ham and cheese with the potatoes and onions was very satisfying. My husband added a little hot sauce to his serving as he prefers spicy food. I prefer to taste the flavor of the food the way it is. Great breakfast on a cold, wintery morning, and so easy to put together. Plus I like the fact it only requires 4 eggs. So many other casseroles want a half dozen or more. Thanks for sharing!
