This was really good! I've made several of the overnight breakfast casseroles that have bread in them but it seems like they are either too dry or too soggy. I'm going to throw those recipes out and replace them with this one. The only change I made was that I used green onions and I sauteed them with fresh mushrooms ahead of time. Otherwise I made it as written and it turned out perfect. (I love the cheese on the bottom.) For a timesaver you can layer all of the ingredients in the pan the night before so that the only step you have to do in the morning is to pour the eggs over and bake. Read More

Too wet with all that butter! Reduce to 2T instead of 4T. Read More

Easy and delicious...who could ask for more! One recommendation that I have is to save some of the cheese and other toppings (or add extra) for the top. Once the egg is poured on sprinkle on a little more cheese mushrooms and tomato just to give it a prettier finish. Fab recipe. Thanks Read More

WOW! If you are wondering if this is rubbery.. do I have a story for you! My boyfriend came home from work 9 hours after I made this and put it in the microwave.. same great taste not a bit rubbery! I was in SHOCK! I even warned him not to do it. But boys will be boys.. and I am so glad because now I know.. and now you know too =] I mixed a few of the reviews together and added.. sautéed green onion with the regular onion and green peppers (put on bottom).. then on the top I added more cheese and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies (extra hot).. I also cut the recipe in half and was shocked at how thick it turned out! Thanks! We loved this =] Read More

This was delicious. Everyone enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the great recipe. At to the reviewer who gave the recipe 1 star because the submitter used the word scrambled instead of whisked... really? Please use the ranking system correctly or it helps no one. Giving a low score because you didnt read the directions properly is crazy. Everyone else seemed to understand what scrambling eggs in a bowl with milk meant. Read More

I made a lot of changes but this one is great! I changed the cheese from sharp cheddar to a mix of sharp cheddar and low skim mozzarella. Instead of eggs I used Southwestern style egg beaters (2 cartons) I used browned turkey bacon browned and cut into pieces and sauteed onions pepper and tomatoes together for the veggies. My company RAVED over this and I never told them that any of it was low fat or egg beaters. It was great! Try it! Read More

Amazing recipe. So versatile easy and delicious. I've made it twice so far. Once for a cookie exchange party and again for a Mother's Day brunch. Everyone LOVED it. I love that you can add or subtract ingredients to what suits you. I made one with mushroom and spinach and another ham and cheese. This recipe has now been passed on from family to friends. A true winner. Also a great dinner idea. Read More

Made this up for my family this morning. I reduced eggs to 8 and upped milk to 1 cup and placed in 8x8 pan. I added diced tomatoes italian cheese and omitted the olives and mushrooms. This is yummy and easy for you to add and take away your own foods. I love the fact that it doesn't have bread in it. I used cooking spray instead of butter. Thank you! Read More

This was yummy. I almost left out the jalapenos but opted to put them in half the pan and glad I did bc it gave a great flavor. Used everything suggested. This was tasty easy and quick! I would season it up a bit next time and use fresh mushrooms in place of canned but an overall great recipe! Read More
