I didn't care for this. It was missing something, not sure what.

Made this today for a ladies breakfast. I've made it before a couple times with ham. Today I used sausage. It is very good with either meat. I used grated cheddar cheese because I don't keep processed cheese in my house and I omitted the salt. There is enough salt in the cheese and crackers. Making it the night before and putting it in the fridge made my morning easier and I definitely will keep on making this.

My family thought this dish was just OK. I used cubed ham, and twice the amount of peppers and onions, but it seemed bland. The building blocks are fine, but next time I think using sausage and a sharper cheese, like cheddar or Swiss, would punch up the flavor better.

I made these with ham and used egg beaters and it was very good. Willadd a little swiss cheese next time.

I have made these before and have found it is best to refrigerate overnight. Also, leftovers are great cold too!

This is a delicious recipe! I prepared it the night before and baked it early the next morning. I took it out of the refrigerator 30 minutes in advance as the recipe suggested. The only adjustment I made was baking it 1 hour instead of 45 minutes. I found that the middle wasn't completely baked after 45 minutes.

I haven't made it, but it sounds great! The only thing is, I can't imagine waiting all that time for breakfast, so I'm going to try it for a lunch dish when I have a few friends over - with the sparking wine, as suggested!

Does anyone know if this can be frozen? i haven't tried it yet, but it looks like a handy thing to pull out of the freezer on a Sat. morning!

Made this recipe for the first time for Christmas 2010. My family loves it, so it is a regular at our house. My recipe calls for process American cheese. I just use 5-6 slices cut up and lay 2 more slices on top. I also have maded with cheddar cheese and sauasge. Both are good. We do perfer the American cheese, since it is different from so many of Breaksfast casseroles in my collection. I usally serve it along with a fruit salad, sausage links and muffins.
