"Cooks while you sleep! Sounds perfect for a Sunday morning or holidays and great for company! Some fun variations of this recipe. Before cooking (during prep) you can add: chunks of sourdough bread, diced chilies, salsa, diced green onions. Serve hot with a glass of orange juice and a side of toast."

"Very good recipe! Next time I will add lots of green chiles and mix it with pepper jack cheese! Add some bacon too-just because!!! Serve it with tortilla's and fresh grapes( in season right now)!!! Perfect! Stress free breakfast. If you use a small crock pot plan 8 hours and for a larger crock pot 6 hours is perfect!"
"This is very bland when made as directed. I would decrease the dried mustard and amp up the flavor with sauteed vegetables - peppers, onions, spinach with liquid squeezed out, and add a tsp or 2 of dried basil. Also agree that this was done much sooner than indicated - overnight is too long for this to cook."
"This is an interesting recipe which turned out surprisingly good! I used Italian spicy sausage to heat up the casserole. The taste was excellent! Will try with bacon like other reviewers suggested next time."
"Super easy to make!! For our homeschool cooking class my kids did everything except cook the sausage onions and bacon.. We added a pack of Kirkland bacon and I caramelized a large onion and added those along with a small palm full of herbs de provance it tasted yummy except I think the cooking time was a bit much I noticed after about 41/2 hrs mine was done looking but I let it cook the minimum time stated and the bottom was very burned but we just scraped it off and my kids LOVED it so we will be making this again!!!"
"DE-LIC-IOUS!!! I enjoyed how easy this was to make. I was very surpeised when I read the nutritional information, so I think i'm going to find some healthier ingredients for it. Other than that, it was a hit with my family."
"I made this and it is delicious. I added diced onion and peppers too for a little more flavor. However, I would probably add either another roll of sausage or some bacon next time for just a little more meat. Makes a good filling for breakfast burritos!"
"I made this for Christmas Day brunch and my family woke up the next morning hungry for leftovers! It finished in approx 6.5 hours. I augmented the recipe by: adding cayenne and cooked bacon to the egg mixture, using hot Italian sausage, and excluding the mustard."
"Great recipe if you want a plate full of raw, soggy hash browns! Not impressed at all, will not make this again."
"Great foundation recipe ... I added pepperjack along with a mexican blend cheese, green chilis and chorizo = EXCELLENT! No leftovers. I used a 4 qt crockpot and cooked overnight. With the changes we made it will remain a Christmas morning favorite! The best recipes happen when you think outside the box! Love it!"
"This is my breakfast brunch go to.. easy, cooks overnight, feeds a big group... life is good!"
"I was not impressed. The result was significantly overcooked. I used a 7.5 qt. Crock Pot brand slow cooker and cooked for 7 hours. With less time or a smaller appliance, it might have been better. Also, the directins were unclear and there were ingredients listed that were not even mentioned in the directions. I have since located the original version of this recipe at All Kinds of Yumm blog with pictures for each step, which clarifies the process a bit. Will not make again."
"I made this for my extended family on a ski trip and it was a HUGE hit. Everyone was going back for seconds and thirds. Plus it filled the house with yummy sausage-y smells while we were sleeping so everyone was up bright and early. I accidentally dumped the egg right over the hash browns when I was assembling it so I ended up tossing everything in randomly and mixing it up. I skipped the mustard powder and garlic and doubled the onion. Delicious! We'll be making this one again."
"Worst tasting thing I've ever made. It was just awful. Complete waste of about $15!"
"Made this last night. Tastes yummy except the hash browns were too mushy. Any ideas on what I could do differently so they won't turn out like that next time?"
"Simply WOW. I made this for Thanksgiving breakfast. The incredible aroma of this casserole woke me up and I could not wait for the family to wake up so I dug into it and I was not disappointed. Will definitely add some spices/chilis to it next time, but it is so yummy the way it is. I did cook mine a little over 8 hours on low and was still nice and moist....the edges got a bit brown, but I like that. This will be a recipe that will be used quite often. Who would have thought a crock pot would make such an awesome casserole."
"Made this today for lunch, so good. When I make again I will add some bacon"
