This is the best breakfast casserole I have ever made and eaten. I have made enough to know that I prefer red pepper to green and I cooked the hasbrowns beforehand, as one reviewer suggested. Awesome Awesome dish. The hubs and my dad loved it. It was perfect with my baking powder biscuits and Ambrosia salad. I cooked it for 50 minutes and it was perfect

Have been making this for several years now and the family loves it! Have tweaked it over time to suit our taste by swapping O’Brien potatoes for regular hash browns (we like a bit of peppers and onions), and adding 1/2 lb of cooked bacon, crumbled, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp dry mustard. Always takes almost an hour to bake as mentioned by another reviewer. I also use gluten-free Bisquick for family members with celiac, and it’s still great!

Delicious. Will be making this for Christmas mornings. This was not done at 35 min.s. It was still very runny. It took about 50 min.s. Make sure to let stand before slicing. Used 1% milk and wouldn't recommend that. Will use the 2% or even whole next time.

We had this Christmas morning and it came out perfect. Easy to make the night before (which was key) and ready to bake in the morning. I'll make this again! Everyone like it.

Fabulous. We actually made this for dinner. We had just come back from a quick trip and needed something easy to make for dinner. I had all the ingredients on hand and it worked out wonderfully. The left overs were used for breakfast burritos the next morning.

This is an awesome, easy way to feed a crowd in a hurry. I've made it in the crockpot also

Very similar to Amish breakfast casserole but not as good.

Enjoyed this. Followed exactly. Next time I'll do a spicy sausage just to give it a bit more umphf; and I liked the suggestion of salsa on the side. The suggestion to ensure you dry the hash browns is correct. Like someone else said they might try to actually gook them first which might be good since they did sort of disappear (and I like hash browns). 5-10 mins longer cooking is a good idea. I'll do again.
