This was a easy and delicious recipe. I used egg beaters, low fat ricotta, skim milk, turkey sausage and low fat cheddar. I cooked it for about 50 minutes and it turned out wonderful. I would make this again.

Made it almost exactly by the recipe except used fresh broccoli and twice the amount of sausage. I found this to be tasteless and more trouble than it was worth. Leftovers were smothered in salsa in an effort to not be wasteful. It didn't help. I find this impossible to choke down. Absolutely tasteless. Even worse, the more you chew, the more it grows. I gave up and threw it in the trash.

Great flavor - very well received. I borrowed an idea from a different recipe and used a container of crescent roll doll on the bottom of a 9x12 pan. Made for easy serving, since the egg didn't stick to the bottom of the pan. You could definitely get creative with this recipe (changing meats, veggies, cheese, etc).

I made this for supper last night. It is wonderful! I modified the recipe some though. I browned the meat, added some onions and let them cook a bit. Then added fresh broccoli, (I used the food processor to cut both veggies, easy!) after the meat mixture cooled a bit, along with the cheese. I didn't have ricotta cheese, so I used sour cream and mozzerella instead. Skipped the milk. I didn't have a tomato and that's too bad, would have been even better. My boyfriend thinks mushrooms would be a good addition too.

I am always on the hunt for good brunch casseroles. Not only was this good, but it was very simple to make. Try this with fresh steamed asparagus as a broccoli substitute, very tasty! Serves well with a sweet bread and fresh fruit salad.

I made this as a Christmas morning brunch for friends who had us sleep over on Christmas Eve; I made as much in advance as possible, bagged the cooked broccoli and cheese separately and lightened up the cholesterol considerably by using only 2 whole eggs and 8 more egg whites. I used a jalapeno cheddar and fresh broccoli, steamed and drained ahead of time. I cooked the sausage and put it in my covered casserole dish and then added the remaining ingredients that I had prepared in baggies in layers on Christmas morning. A definite keeper, tasty, interesting and all gone!

I changed this recipe around because I don't like broccoli. I added spinach, onions, mushrooms, bacon, more cheese, more tomatoes, and garlic. I loved this!! I will definitely make it again.

Loved this did everyone else. The only discrepancy was that it took much longer than 45 minutes to cook...closer to an hour and a half. Worth the wait!
