Everyone i have served this to has requested the recipe. It's easy to feed to a crowd at holiday time because it can be made ahead. I found it in April/May 2000 issue of Taste of Home.

This was fabulous! I did make some changes but only minor ones. 1st I changed the type of cheese because even though I love swiss, the rest of my family does not feel the same way. I ended up using 8oz of cheddar combined with 6oz of havarti (we love extra cheese). The only other thing I did differantly was to scramble the eggs instead of hard boiling them. I am not one who is fond of over cooked eggs, so I scrambled them and left them a tad on the runny side, layered them in the dish and allowed them to finish cooking in the oven. They came out perfect! I added a picture of my own. This is definately going into my keeper file. Thanks for posting!
Changing my review of this to 5 stars. The more we ate on this, the better it got. Added some baby bella mushrooms that I fried up along with the onions. I also used the oven-ready noodles after I had soaked them in warm water for 5 minutes and they worked out fine. (Any longer and they tend to stick together). Very nice taste. Thanks for posting this recipe.
this tastes great, and was gone in a flash!!! If you bring it to a potluck make sure to also tag along some salt and pepper too. Preperation time is a bit long though and I even bought pre boiled eggs. I recommend a better quality, less fat, more meaty bacon or even breakfast sausage.
