Great flavor - very well received. I borrowed an idea from a different recipe and used a container of crescent roll doll on the bottom of a 9x12 pan. Made for easy serving since the egg didn't stick to the bottom of the pan. You could definitely get creative with this recipe (changing meats veggies cheese etc). Read More

Made it almost exactly by the recipe except used fresh broccoli and twice the amount of sausage. I found this to be tasteless and more trouble than it was worth. Leftovers were smothered in salsa in an effort to not be wasteful. It didn't help. I find this impossible to choke down. Absolutely tasteless. Even worse the more you chew the more it grows. I gave up and threw it in the trash. Read More

This was a easy and delicious recipe. I used egg beaters low fat ricotta skim milk turkey sausage and low fat cheddar. I cooked it for about 50 minutes and it turned out wonderful. I would make this again. Read More

I made this for supper last night. It is wonderful! I modified the recipe some though. I browned the meat added some onions and let them cook a bit. Then added fresh broccoli (I used the food processor to cut both veggies easy!) after the meat mixture cooled a bit along with the cheese. I didn't have ricotta cheese so I used sour cream and mozzerella instead. Skipped the milk. I didn't have a tomato and that's too bad would have been even better. My boyfriend thinks mushrooms would be a good addition too. Read More

I am always on the hunt for good brunch casseroles. Not only was this good but it was very simple to make. Try this with fresh steamed asparagus as a broccoli substitute very tasty! Serves well with a sweet bread and fresh fruit salad. Read More

I made this as a Christmas morning brunch for friends who had us sleep over on Christmas Eve; I made as much in advance as possible bagged the cooked broccoli and cheese separately and lightened up the cholesterol considerably by using only 2 whole eggs and 8 more egg whites. I used a jalapeno cheddar and fresh broccoli steamed and drained ahead of time. I cooked the sausage and put it in my covered casserole dish and then added the remaining ingredients that I had prepared in baggies in layers on Christmas morning. A definite keeper tasty interesting and all gone! Read More

Loved this recipe...so did everyone else. The only discrepancy was that it took much longer than 45 minutes to cook...closer to an hour and a half. Worth the wait! Read More

Served this at my Easter brunch and was pretty satisfied. I wanted to put it into a 9x13 so used 12 eggs and a bit more milk. Even though we always drink skim I use whole milk in a recipe like this because skim makes for a watery dish. I also used fresh steamed broccoli sauted half an onion and half a red pepper and added them. I think you could be creative with the cheeses you use too. Read More

I thought this recipe was really good. I substituted egg beaters for the eggs and did have to cook it an extra 10 minutes in the oven for the center to be cooked. I also substituted thinly sliced deli turkey for the sausage. It was great and my family enjoyed it. I will definitely make it again but more ahead of when I want to serve as it does take a looooong time to cook. Read More
