This is an eggy, cheesy breakfast casserole with an identity crisis. Is it Italian, Greek, Tex-Mex? Who cares. It tastes great. It has the standard ingredients of eggs, cheese, and hash brown potatoes seen in most breakfast casseroles. However, it is a fusion of different spices from cuisines around the world which are added to the traditional American breakfast casserole. It can be made ahead, refrigerated overnight, and then put in the oven the next morning. Add bacon, sausage, or ham for a hearty breakfast dish.

I really liked the seasonings in this.. quite tasty. A friend had some home grown mild peppers so I threw in one of those and I used egg beaters. I added a little salt and a lot of cracked rainbow peppercorns because I am a pepper freak. I'll make this again. Next time I'll add a bit more egg Read More

I didn't love this. I thought the ratio of eggs to potatoes was off / too many potatoes. I'd prefer more eggs. The Greek seasoning was also a little much for my taste. If I made again I'd probably reduce the seasoning and add some sausage to make more of a breakfast casserole out of it. Read More

This was very tasty. I used 2 whole eggs and 4 egg whites. I also used only half of the cheese. It was very good though it did take about 46 minutes to cook! Very easy too. I omitted the onion because there was onion in the pico de gallo. I will be making this one again! Thanks for sharing! Read More

Easy to prepare. I used more eggs and let it cook about 15 minutes longer until it was not runny. Easy to change ingredients if you want different flavors depending on your needs. Read More

I used Mexican cheese blend instead of Italian. It should be cooked an hour instead of 40 min. as potatoes do d not seem done enough. Read More
