I like the recipe because it is easy. If you don't want to get up early and have to make breakfast early it is already made the night before. All you have to do is pop it in the oven in the morning and let it cook while you are getting ready for the day. It came from my late Grandma...may God bless her soul. I miss her. This makes a great Christmas morning casserole as you can cook it while opening Santa's gifts. Try it. It is yummy and saves time on Christmas morning--or anytime.

This is a excellent casserole.. I even added mushrooms and olives and onions.. it is really easy to make and saves alot of time in the morning. I even added a little salsa to it for more flavor... its good!!!!!!
Delicious - made this Christmas morning for my folks and loved by all - even my 2 yr old nephew and 6 yr. old niece. Next time I'll substitute bacon, spinach and maybe feta cheese to create a greek version. Delicious!
