    Chef PotPie's Note:

    My Mother-In-Law has been making this for breakfast on Christmas day since I met my Dear Husband and before. It's really wonderful, and we always look forward to brunch at Mom's. This recipe can be changed all about, too. I've used pepper-jack cheese and shrimp, Havarti and crab...We just like it best the way Mom makes it! This goes very well with little sweet rolls, fresh strawberries, juice and coffee.

      I love this recipe. A little like souffle and/or fluffy quiche. I cut the recipe in half but used 3 eggs instead of 2 1/2 eggs. Used 8 1/4 inch round dish for baking. Since I did not want to waste the soup/milk mixture, I made the whole serving of soup/milk topping mixture and used half of it and froze the other half for another time. Also, since this reminded me a bit of another dish with mushroom soup, I added some already made sauerkraut (about 2/3 C total) during the layering. This recipe is great for creativity and I also added some garlic and hot sauce to the filling. I baked the dish for about 1 hour and 40-45 minutes. The topping of soup/mixture browned nicely and the dish puffed up beautifully. The taste was fabulous! I did not let the filling mixture sit overnight - too hungry and only let the mixture sit for 2 hours or so. I knew this was ok because I make enough bread pudding and the mixture is similar except this one is savory instead of sweet. We served this for dinner with a green salad. Thank you Chef PotPie for posting this great recipe! A keeper for sure. Will try to post a photo tomorrow.

      PotPie - this is a hearty and filling breakfast casserole!! As you mentioned in your note - I used pepperjack cheese for a little extra kick - YUM! I love that this is a one dish meal - instead of everything separate - easy to prepare and delicious to eat!
