Made it twice. Modified the 2nd time. Doubled the fresh cracked pepper. Added cumin and smoked paprika about 1/2 tsp each. Delicious.

Easy for sure, but needs more flavor. Will add jalapenos and green chilis next time

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!
