This was really easy and smelled wonderful as it was cooking! My husband doesn't like sausage so I used bacon instead. The bread was a little mushy for my taste but everyone else loved it. The next time I make this I may toast the bread before putting it in the caserole. Read More

We had this for Christmas morning breakfast as the poster suggested and we really enjoyed it. It's got a different texture (something like bread pudding) from most make-ahead egg casseroles that I've tried. Read More

We didn't like this very much. After a few bites both my husband and I ended up eating oatmeal for breakfast instead. Read More

Other than being way too salty it was pretty good. I would use a 4 quart dish as the three quart just barely held with ingredients leaving much spillage. Read More

Just made my first batch--I can tell it will be great and it sure was easy. One thing though I could not imagine actually using a can of cheddar cheese soup it did not sound appealing. I used cream of mushroom soup instead and will try cream of celery next time. Read More

I made a few changes by reducing the salt to 1/2 teaspoon which I felt was plenty because of all the salt in the soup. Also after I began making this I discovered I only had 5 eggs so I reduced the milk to nearly 2 cups. I didn't make this the night before just prepared it in a 9x13 pan and threw it in the oven. The taste wasn't bad but it wasn't outstanding either. I particularly didn't care for the texture. Read More
