I cut this recipe in half and baked in a 9" x 9" casserole, for 50 minutes and let stand 10 min. I used 1/2 the ingredients and only 3/4 cup cheese. It has a good flavor but, it was oity. I would make again, but would use fat free cheese and back off the milk to 1 cup, as to make the eggs firm. I did add sauted mushrooms and onions. Very good.

This was pretty good, though I think I'll cut down on the amount of bread next time and bump up the mushrooms and eggs. It's very rich and I liked the flavor - just a little too bread-heavy...

I would recommend using less milk so it doesn't take quite as long to bake.

added some onion powder and divided the recipe in half. And yes, you do refridgerate overnight - at least that is what I did and it turned out delicious!

This is very good. Next time I make it I will double the mushrooms and tomatoes. This recipe will be very easy to cut in half for a smaller family. I also want to try adding some bacon bits, finely diced onions and green peppers. I will recommend this to friends and family.

The recipe doesn't say if the dish should be refrigerated overnight, as most of these kind of recipes are.
