I know a recipe is good when I daydream about it the next day and wonder how long I have to wait before I can do it again. I added a little garlic powder, but I imagine this is very versatile and it would be easy to switch out whatever protein and veggie you had on hand.

My family really liked this recipe and my husband said it was a nice change from the typical breakfast casserole. I laughed and agreed saying "Yes, it's not BLAND"! I halfed the recipe and didn't realize until I had it all prepared that it needed to sit in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight so I just let it sit for maybe 20 min on the counter and baked for 45 minutes.

This is awesome! I cut the butter down to 1/2 cup and it was still wonderful. I added a little bit of onions. I loved that it's not too "eggy." Word of advice....You have to put this out on the table right away or you're going to find yourself plucking off all of those crispy, buttery bread cubes and popping them in your mouth! ;) Who can resist that topping? This is great for brunch or supper. Thanx for a great new recipe!

Excellent! I substituted blanched fresh asparagus for the broccoli and rye bread cubes for the whole wheat bread cubes. Love, love, love the flavors and it made a lot.

Excellent. Made this without ham or butter and added an extra egg. My family enjoyed it very much with fruit for dinner. Will definitely make this again.

This really hit the spot! It was a perfect recipe for my 5 year-old to help with- he enjoyed using the kitchen shears to cube the bread. The only change we made was that I was a little short on cheddar cheese, so we subbed part mozzarella. The kids enjoyed it as is, the adults added a little hot sauce to our servings. I could see adding sauted onions next time. Thanks for a tasty dinner!

Just made this for a family brunch tomorrow. I had leftover ham and broccoli from Christmas dinner and was able use them all up. Can't wait for brunch, this looked awesome when I was preparing it. Thanks for posting.

Outstanding. I used a packaged blended cheese that had bacon in it. Eliminated the salt and never noticed it. Chopped the broccoli small. Took this to church and got rave reviews. Even ate leftovers for lunch and it was delicious. This is a keeper.

This was great! I made it with way less butter than called for, but it wasn't any less moist. My daughter, who usually won't eat food that "looks funny" gobbled this up. And it's even good cold several hours later.
