The original recipe is delicious, but this is my healthier version, with less fat and calories. It also freezes beautifully and individual portions can be reheated in 3 minutes in the microwave. As a single person, I can't eat 8 portions at one sitting, so I divide and freeze. But it's great if family visits, because I can have the portions ready to reheat, and it's also great if you're in a hurry in the morning and don't have time to cook before heading off to work.

Yum. I had regular hash browns in freezer so I used those baked them up on their own first to get a little crunchy. Has regular plain egg beaters so I added onions cilantro and red pepper flakes to compensate. I enjoyed this and look forward to the leftovers.. oh I think I used a bit more egg and added fresh cracked pepper Read More

I'm rating 3 but that's me. My husband and daughter liked it and my grandma loved it. For me- only fair. I think it was the egg beaters maybe as I enjoyed the potato part and the cheese. I followed recipe exactly except my pan only held 7 patties and I used ham instead of Canadian bacon. I did use the southwestern egg beaters. I see how I could adapt this so I might like it better.

I really loved this recipe! I actually used the southwest egg beaters and after the cheese I topped it with green onions chopped and cilantro like the other review suggested. My friends LOVED this recipe! The entire dish was devoured in under and hour. Great recipe! Read More

I've made this recipe with some minor variation a few times now due to limited options at the grocery store and each time comes out magnificent. I've used fresh green and red bell peppers tomatoes and jalapeno peppers when I could only find eggs but was able to get the southwest Egg Beaters on one visit. Each time I made this I've used more egg or Egg Beaters than recipe calls for as much as a dozen large whole eggs or a large carton of Egg Beaters. I've tried with mexican mix cheddar and lowfat (2%) cheeses as well. I've also used more hashbrowns than called because we didn't have hashbrown patties at the store that visit. Two of the times I made this I used the whole bag of Ore Ida Crowns which are like mini tots. Although I find myself having to cook longer due to my variations all attempts have turned out delicious and a real hit. Read More

This was a nice easy breakfast casserole; I liked the ease of using frozen hash brown patties. I used real eggs so I added bell peppers onions green chilis and tomatoes to my eggs (8). This took a bit longer to bake for me. Our guests all enjoyed it and I liked that it was easy to throw together (in a camper even!). THANKS for the recipe! Read More

Everyone loved this casserole and we aren't really casserole people! Made it for after Christmas morning and had to make it again this snowy morning. I used one roll of crumbled Jimmy Dean Sage sausage instead of Canadian bacon. Also used less cheese (cheddar only) - just enough to create a layer which was probably about 2.5 cups. One Egg Beater package was a bit short of 1 3/4 cups so I added one egg as well. Served with green onion cilantro and sour cream on the side. Delicious! Cooking time was right on target. Read More

This was great! I added crumbled bacon to the top the last 15 mins. However I will cut out the salt next time. Read More

The hubby declared this a home run. I liked it though was surprised the southwestern egg beaters didn't impart more flavor. Also thought it was really greasy which is a shame given how healthy the rest of it is. I will try regular shredded potatoes next time instead of the frozen patties. Left out the salt and didn't miss it - the canadian bacon egg beaters and patties had plenty of sodium already! Used only 1 bag of shredded cheese (2 cups) - thought it was plenty. This could use a little bit of spice might try pepperjack next time or a few shakes of crushed red pepper and LOVE the idea of scallions on top! Definitely hearty though! Read More
