    FANTASTIC! You should have more than 5 Stars. I took this casserole to work for one of our monthly breadfasts. I did have to make a dash of changes. They are mostly Vegetarians. (No ham or other meat.) I added a wee more fresh aspargagus. I had steamed my asparagus and didn't add them while doing step 3. (I didn't want them over-cooked) However, while doing step 3, I added 2 minced jalapeno peppers and 8 oz sliced mushrooms. (Seasoned with garlic powder, salt and black pepper) [no ham, no marjoram] I used thin long Italian bread (When sliced almost every little square had a bit of crust) I followed the instructions. My casserole took 50 min. I added the last cup of cheese. I topped it with some asapargus spears I had set aside. Also, I added some cherry tomatoes, that I had cut in half. (A dash of color) I popped into the oven for 6 min. and took it to work. It was perfect! I had to give out your recipe to many. Thank you for a "keeper". I've put the recipe in my "favorites". Can't wait to make it for the holidays. Thank you.

    OMG! Best breakfast casserole I have ever eaten. I used croissant's instead of biscuit's, cheddar cheese instead of swiss and I did not use any meat. My husband raved about this dish. I served it drizzled with Balsmic Glaze. This will be the dish I serve for breakfast or brunch when company comes to visit.

    WOW! I served this on Mother's day to a house full of people, and it was completely gone in a matter of minutes. I did attempt to make it a bit healthier by substituting the eggs for egg beaters. I also used garlic powder, and french bread instead of Italian. FABULOUS!!!

    I served this for Mother's Day Brunch and loved it! I love the combo of ham, asparagus, and swiss. Instead of steaming the asparagus I just sauted it with the onions and peppers until it was crisp-tender. I think it cut out a step without affecting the flavor. Delish! Thanks for posting!

    I loved this recipe so much! I needed a great brunch dish and this one was a breeze to make. I loved how easy it was to make. If you want to plan ahead of time, you can assemble the night before and bake off the day off. So easy and delicious!

    I changed a LOT on this recipe. First, I had no peppers, so I left it out and added paprika to the seasoning. I used a full pound of asparagus. I only had 2 1/2 cups of bread crumbs (and it still had plenty of bread). I'm allergic to milk, so I substituted soy milk for the milk and left out the cheese. I only used about 1 3/4 cups of soy milk. I also only used 2 tbs of butter instead of 1/2 cup. I had no marjoram, so I used paprika, pepper, and a little thyme. I also added in 2 cloves of garlic to the veggie mix. it came out very good, although I think in the future I will add more veggies
