I increased recipe by 1/2 and baked in 13x 9 pan. I increased eggs to 14 used 1 cup milk 1/2 cup half half 3 cups frozen shredded potatoes and about 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar. Instead of ham I cooked a pound of bacon and crumbled it and did not completely drain the grease. I also chopped a green pepper and vidalia onion and lightly sauteed in butter. I think I used about 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. I generously buttered the 13 x 9 pan before adding ingredients - I covered and refrigerated overnight. Then took out of refrigerator about 20 minutes before cooking it. Everyone raved about it - I think sauteed mushrooms would also be good as would drained chili peppers. Thanks for posting Read More

Very quick and easy. Next time I might add green peppers and mushrooms. It's like a potato quiche. Read More

My family loves this recipe! I made it more like a western/southwest omelet with lots of sauteed veggies like green pepper, onion and zucchini, and salsa. I also used sharp cheddar cheese and added some hot pepper cheese to spice it up. It's a great basic recipe to start with, and then you can add whatever your family likes. My daughter requests this all the time! Read More

I read all the reviews and decided to sautee 1/4 onion 1/3 each of green and red peppers and added red pepper flakes. I baked it in a 9 X 13 pan for about 30 mins or so. Might try making it with pepper jack cheese with salsa on the side. Can't wait to try this with sausage. Read More

Excellent breakfast! Can be made and baked the night before and reheated in the morning--perfect for company if you know you'll be rushed in the morning. (I've also made it with 1 cup bacon bits for the meat--very good.) I did add sauteed onion and garlic to it and baked about 10 min. longer. Served with English muffins and jam--tastey! Thanks for sharing. Read More

Excellent base. I don't eat ham so omit the meat add drained spinach or broccoli to the dish and if I have them fresh tomatoes and a touch of basil. Makes a fantastic Summer Dinner. Read More

Made this late at night & it was EASY and tasty! I was too lazy to put in fresh onions and garlic so used powder and it turned out great as a dinner (strong breath for breakfast!). I don't think there is many ways to mess this one up. Personally I should have used more ham but it is great for one's own preference. Also I just peeled potatoes and it only took 1 hour. Thanks!

My hubby gets the credit for this one. Not only did I get to sleep in this morning I woke up to the fabulous smell of this in the oven! He made a few changes though. Used a garlic onion cheese we had in the frig that really helped flavour it up some and used spinach instead of potatos.... plus used more eggs and more milk to make it bigger! Nice and fluffy!
