This is fabulous! I served it at my Christmas breakfast and everyone loved it. I doubled the recipe, tripled the eggs (12), and added ham. Also used cheddar, mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. Baked about an hour. It was excellent. Definitely will make this again.

Yummo, Yummo, Yummo and Oh so Good as they would say. This is the best breakfast casserole that I have so far made. It is wonderful plain and also dressed up. I have made this with crab meat, shrimp, just to name a few. My husband who is a fussy person went for seconds and that is saying much. Thank you for such a wonderful and delicious recipe.

I've made this several times. It is a hit each time. I generally add some ham to mine.

It is easy and quick. Putting together the night before helps with the next morning. This recipe is now a family standard!

Since I found this recipe, I've made it 5 or 6 times and am getting ready to prepare it for a Teacher Appreciation day at school. I've gotten nothing but raves every time I make it and it's a great vegetarian breakfast casserole option. I feel like I"m eating at Panera's when I make and serve this casserole!

This was fun to make and very tasty. I made it for a breakfast pitch-in at work, and brought home an empty pan. It was so nice to offer a meatless casserole that was delicious and attractive. I will definitely make this again. (I did substitute cheddar for the mozzarella and added a pinch of cayenne pepper.) Thanks!

Wow - I served this for Easter. Made it the night before with croissants from Costco) and popped it in the oven when we got back from church. Perfect! People were raving. I always to a make ahead egg casserole but this was so much better! I used mozzarella and cheddar cheese, and threw in an extra red pepper for color. Amazing! So easy and so delicious!

Enjoyed this for Christmas morning breakfast with Oven Cooked Bacon With Black Pepper and Brown Sugar and grapefruit sections. Fancier than your typical breakfast casserole but still so easy since you make it ahead. Used 8 cocktail-sized croissants from Costco which fit nicely in an 11x7 dish. Added a bit of seasoned salt and pepper to the mushrooms. Cheesey and rich and very delicious! Did loosely cover the dish the last 15 minutes or so. Even so the croissants on top came out very flakey. Yum! Having made this mistake before, would caution to be sure you purchase croissants made from butter, not margarine as sold in some grocery store bakeries. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe, MarieAlice!

Amazing!!! I made it for my annual family cookie exchange and it was a hit. Since it was a brunch, I used the mini croissants (from Target bakery), and I added 1 cup Ham. The mini croissants we're perfect for the group. I can't wait to make it again!!

O-M-GOODNES! I'd give this more stars if I could! This is so easy and absolutely OFF the charts for delicioussss! I followed the recipe to the "T", but I mixed up a pkt of Hollandaise sauce and drizzled it over the top just before serving. I've made it twice now, and once I forgot to add the Parmesan cheese. We never even noticed it was missing! This dish is very similar to a breakfast that a local restaurant serves, and this comes so close to matching it. I'll never spend $12.95 for this on their breakfast menu again. I can now make it at home. Also.. I reheated some left overs (warm not super hot) and it was wonderful. The croissants did not go soggy. SO SO SO GOOD!

This was so easy and delicious! I increased everything for 5 people. I used Half and Half instead of milk. I also took the advice of a poster and used butter croissants from GFS. I used less cheese and green onion. The picture shows 2 croissants and they filled a 9" deep dish pie plate. I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing!
