My DH takes a lot of pride participating in the RZ rating proc. He tasted this dish, savored it, tasted it again & said "Já! Mjög gott! Fimm stjörnur!" (Yes! Very good! 5 stars!). This is the best breakfast casserole I've ever tasted & came together easily. I try to stay true to the "bare bones" of a new recipe, but admit I tweaked it just a bit. I added 2 tbsp lemon juice to the roux + 1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning salt & it had a distinct hollandaise flavor TDF. It would be so good in a frittata on top of a crisp potato hash. Loved it so much! Thx.
This was very good and tasty. I made it up the night before and baked the next day. Worked out very well. Thanks.
I picked this recipe for the Pick A Chef game and I'm so glad I did. This is just wonderful. Very rich. The only change I made was I left out the fried onions because we don't care for them, but other than that made as directed. Great recipe and fairly easy to make. Thanks mewmew. And a note, I love the photo on your about me page.
