I followed Bergy's advice on cutting back the milk, but it still came out a little too soggy. And it tasted pretty bland to me.
So easy and so good - the only thing I changed (believe it or not Miller) was to cup back the milk to 1 1/2 cups. and I sprinkled the bacon on the casserole just before putting it in the oven Wonderful to get it ready in the evening and then just pop it in for brunch. I served this one dish meal with fresh fruit salad for starters, home pan fried potatoes, fresh scones, homemade strawberry jam and Tim Hortons coffee - no complaints from any one. This dish is really a whole meal and you do not need to serve anything along with it Thanks Miller
