    coconutty's Note:

    Another yummy-sounding recipe that I am posting for safekeeping. This is baked in an 11-12 inch baking dish or skillet about 2 inches deep or individual baking dishes about 6 inches in diameter.

      This was just OK for us. Nothing wrong with it, just nothing that stood out. Honestly we would rather have just had eggs and hashbrowns.

      This is my go-to recipe for brunch or pot-lucks. It's good hot or at room temp. I've been using it for over 30 years, everybody still raves about it. Thank you Julia!
