This was easy and tasted good. We will make it again but may add ham or sausage to it as well or try throwing in some bell pepper in addition to the onion. Overall we liked it and will make it again. Read More

The casserole was good; however the directions don't indicate that the pan needs to be sprayed before putting the bread in the dish. Also I used more eggs and cheese then what was indicated which made it a little better. Read More

Quite good. I will make this again. When making it I suspected there wasn't enough liquid but I like to follow the recipe the first time. It was fine. I did cut the bread a bit smaller than suggested.:-) Read More
