I mostly use this as a breakfast casserole, but it's great anytime. May be served with or without diced ham. Quick and easy to make, not to mention delicious!

There are so many awesome reviews of this recipe that you may never even bother to read mine but . . . we have this at EVERY single family gathering. We have to plan the rest of the food around this recipe because the entire extended family insists upon this particular recipe. Others have brought different versions but they just don't cut it with the "fam." You cannot go wrong if you try this recipe. Don't subsitute cream of chicken or celery soup for the cream of potato. It's a key ingredient and worth the trip to the market to get it if you don't have it on hand. Read More

I may get kicked to the curb for saying this, but it was ok. I was a little surprised that there were no eggs in a breakfast casserole! It was good though, just not fantastic. Read More

This is a wonderful casserole. The first time I made this dish my boyfriend thought it was too rich. He decided to give it one more try. I made it this past weekend. He loved it. Instead of using the sharp cheddar, I used medium cheddar. I also added 1/4c red bell peppers, 1/4c green bell peppers, and 1/4c onions, and 1/4c mushrooms. Also after I serve this onto a plate, I grate some fresh parmesean cheese to give it a little kick. The peppers added such a wonderful flavor to this dish. This is going to be a favorite for a long time. Enjoy. Thank you Melissa! Read More

I followed the recipe precisely, and this was yummy. I did cover loosely with foil after about 20 minutes when it looked like the edges were browning too early, but next time I'm just going to let it go. I didn't think a cup of ham would be enough or that this would actually serve 12, but it was just right. I used diced hash browns instead of the shreds, and shredded parmesan from a bag instead of the shaker can. Next time I might throw in some chopped jalapenos or green chiles for more zip -- bacon crumbles would be good too -- and the earlier reviewer's breakfast burrito idea for leftovers also sounds fabulous! This was super-easy to make up the night before. Thanks! Read More

I made this for a church group and got rave reviews and many recipe requests. I agreed with other reviewers that it was very salty if you can use any low sodium ingredients do so. To the reviewer whose results were soupy I wonder if you might have used ready to serve rather than condensed soup. Thanks for sharing this recipe! This is an addition to my original review. I recently made this again I omitted the Parmesan cheese instead topping it with an additional handful of cheddar. This eliminated the salt problem! Wonderful stuff try it you will be pleased!

For my son's First Holy Communion I had the whole family over for brunch after Church. Everyone raved about this recipe and I had to give the recipe to several people, I did make some changes that came out wonderful. I used 1 can of cheddar cheese soup and 1 can of potato soup, I also added bacon and used Oreda potatos O'brien, I can't tell you enough how easy and tasty this recipe is. Read More

Oh this is good!!! I added green onions and salt and pepper because I can't live without those things in my hashbrowns but even without those this is a great recipe. I took it to my mother's group brunch and while we were cleaning up women were eating the last little bits with their fingers. It was pretty funny. This recipe is also very easy to throw together and I love it with the potato soup instead of cream of chicken which is a variation I have tried in the past. This one is definitely a keeper.

Loved it! I had it for Christmas brunch along with Belgiun waffles and it was a hit. I did make some changes though. I used shredded hash browns 2 cans of cream of celery soup - healthy request instead of cream of potato. I sauted green pepper and onion and added that. Instead of grated parmesan I used shredded parmesan. The rest I kept the same. Everyone asked for the recipe!! It's a keeper! Read More
