I wanted to try this because it didn't call for any milk.I used 6 lg eggs instead of egg substitute, ham instead of chicken, 1 c cheese was bland and too many potatoes. Next time will decrease potatoes to 3 c and add onions and bell peppers

Very filling and large serving size for the amount of calories and delicious. I added salt because it needs it, and also chopped Green Chilies for our New Mexico style cuisine.

I make this recipe, but have changed it a little! Instead of chicken, I use cream of chicken soup, sour cream, shredded Velvetta cheese, 1 stick of melted butter and no egg. Mix the soup, sour cream, butter and cheese, then add hash browns and stir. Put in a greased baking dish and bake! My kids want it all the time!

I substituted bulk sausage for the chicken, and instead of the cheddar dribbled on some melted Velveeta just before baking - this took care of the no-salt problem! :)

As suggested, I added about 1/4 cup of salsa and I also used pre-cooked chicken that was seasoned. I enjoyed and will definitely make again.

We've taken this recipe and expanded it to include vegetables as well, like bell peppers, onions and spinach. It is delicious!

I found this to be a bit bland and dry, but the recipe is so easy that I would definitely try to make some modifications to improve it. I like the idea of adding salsa..and maybe some sauteed bell peppers and onions to liven it up a bit. A keeper with some changes.

This was really bland. It definately needs salt. If I ever made it again, I might use turkey sausage instead of chicken and stir in some salsa. I would also mix in the cheese instead of just putting it on top.

We really liked this - I used ham when I made it the first time. It is in the oven right now - I added some seasoned salt this time.
