    Followed the recipe and found it to be Very salty. I loved the idea that it was easy to make and sounded very tasty.

    This was quick and simple to make. It is VERY filling. You could easily prep this the night before and cook it in the morning. After baking, this would also freeze well in individual portions for a quick breakfast. The only change I would make is to stir the spices into the egg/milk mixture so it would be more evenly distributed.TOH Volunteer Field Editor

    This is the only breakfast casserole I make. I have made it for years out of my Taste of Home magazine from 1995. It was in the "Men on the Range". EVERYONE raves about this casserole. I always tell them that it got it from Taste of Home. Thank you for making me a breakfast casserole rock star!!!

    Loved this!!! Used honey garlic sausage cut out of the casing and habenero heat cheese....excellent!!! Tried it out on 3 colleagues and they raved. It's simple to put together and very easy to personalize for taste.

    I make this recipe every year, put it together Christmas eve, and keep it in the fridge. Put it in the oven Christmas morning and its ready when we are ready for something warm to eat. And my brother even likes it cold, cut into chunks that he can munch on while playing video games! LOL
