I made this using thinly sliced potatoes in place of the hash browns, as I don't like the texture of them, and the casserole was simple to throw together and so delicious! I opted for the sausage and it sure hit the spot!
Made this for dinner for 12 people and everyone yummed it up. Followed the recipe exactly and used ham, red bell pepper, some onion and hash browns. Since I made 2 huge pans, I thankfully had some leftovers which kept in the fridge for 2 weeks and tasted as good as the first day I baked it. This is definitely a keeper -- thanks for posting it!
I had a group of friends stay over and wanted something nice (and easy) for breakfast..I prepared the night before as stated, mixed the milk with the egg (it doesnt say when to use milk but used my brains!) everyone loved it and I gave the recipe to a couple of friends. Served with peppered oven bacon. Thanks!
