Egg Explosion!

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"This casserole has been served at our Easter Sunday brunch for over 30 years. It's easy to adjust the spiciness to suit your family's taste. My family likes it spicy, so we even have a bottle of hot sauce on the side for an additional kick! We serve this with a fancy fruit salad and all the Easter fixings for a delicious brunch buffet! Serve with additional sour cream, if desired"

I made this for a day-after-Thanksgiving brunch. I followed the recipe completely and it was my grandson's favorite and he is asking me to make it again for our day-after-Christmas brunch. I us...

Loved it!! I'd back off to 16 oz on the salsa to avoid a watery finished product. Flavor is amazing.

It is hard to decide between 4 or 5 stars. The taste of this is really good. I would use a thicker salsa next time and not the full 24 ounces. It was a little too watery and not as attractive...

The family liked it. I agree with decreasing the amount of salsa.

could your please rename this eggsplosion :)

I've made this twice now. The first time was to use up some eggs and leftover salsa, sour cream and peppers. I had already made up a delicious Indian dinner, but got bored & did this in addition...

This was excellent! I took reviewers' suggestions and reduced salsa (8-10 oz with remainder offered at serving). I always substitute Greek yogurt for sour cream, and used about 1/2 the amount of...

This is very delicious and packed with flavor! I eat eggs everyday for breakfast (in some form) and this was a great twist. I did have to use bacon instead of sausage as I didn't have any sausa...
