Greek Breakfast Casserole

This is a great dish for a Sunday brunch, or you can cut it into six pieces and freeze it to have as a quick and easy breakfast any day of the week. I also like to make it with broccoli, carrots, green onions, Canadian bacon and sharp cheddar cheese; the variations are nearly endless! —Lauri Knox, Pine, Colorado

    SOUNDS WONDERFUL AND I PLAN TO MAKE IT! BUT WHAT DO I DO WITH 6 EGG YOLKS???

    This is delicious. I plan on freezing it in portion sizes for quick breakfast options this fall. Next time I may leave out the sausage for a vegetarian option.

    This was super flavorful. The broccoli adds nice texture, though not true to the Greek name. I also increased the feta as my family enjoys the flavor.

    This is really good and filling. Left out the artichoke just as a personal preference (dont are for them). I too was confused with the broccoli in a greek casserole, but went with it. Next time I may sub it for spinach. Will make again!

    I cook breakfast for a group of men every Saturday and am always looking for something different. Made 2 pans of this and they wished there was more - easy to do and simply delicious

    It would be helpful if you had a follow-up recipe for the 6 egg yolks not being used.

    Didn't understand "broccoli in a "Greek Casserole". Added Kalamata olives (1/2 cup) and chopped eggplant (1/2 cup) instead of broccoli, and found some "Greek salad dressing". Too much eggplant added too much water to recipe. Tasted good. Might add some drained chopped spinach next time....

    It sounds very good, but except for the Feta cheese,it sounds more Italian.

    Surprisingly good. Couldn't find sun dried tomatoes in water, so I used sun dried tomato pesto and it was fab. Didn't have broccoli, so I added more colored peppers, yellow and orange. Used left over brats, so any spicy meat could sub in here. You really do add 6 egg whites after the first whole 6 eggs. Liked the smaller size of 8x8 so there's not too many leftovers. I will definitely make this one again.
