Savory Egg Casserole

"My parents always served this egg casserole for special occasion breakfasts, and it remains one of my favorites. In the summer, they often served it along with tomatoes from the garden or fresh fruit and in the winter we often served it with hearty bread or grits and juice. Delicious!"

    Can I make this casserole the day before and refrigerate?

    I love mustard so doubled the measurement. My eggs ended up sticking to the pan, so next time I'm going to use a cooking spray oil before adding the ingredients. This is a very moist casserole and great for a brunch with a side of toast and fruit!

    Delicious, cheesy, and easy brunch dish. I liked the flavor the little bit of mustard gave it. We will definitely have this often. Thanks for posting.

    I really enjoyed this, as did my spouse, but it did not go over well at a breakfast potluck. It looked a little different than your 'typical' egg casserole, and I guess our church members aren't the adventurous type at breakfast! Also, I doubled the recipe and put it in a 9X13 pan. It only took about 5 extra minutes cooking time.

    My hubby and two sons loved this. My boys are 8 and 9, and are very picky about the eggs they eat. I, too, thought this was creamy and dreamy. We will use this weekly. The only alteration I made was to use less mustard, as my family doesn't like that flavor too much. THank you!!!

    Thank you Megan V for a quick simple breakfast treat. We had this casserole this morning and everyone liked it. It is going into my Printed 'zaar recipe book under "Will have again"!
