I used fresh mushrooms in this recipe that I sauteed with the onion, red bell pepper and a little fresh minced garlic before adding it to the other ingredients. I did add a little Frank's Hot Sauce to the casserole when I added in the spices. Everyone loved this baked egg omelette, especially me. I made a whole Brinner night and this went GREAT with home fries. I think I would cut the cheese in half next time, I think I could get away with that.

Nothing special going on here. Very heavy and has that boring every casserole flavor. I found this to be rather bland and in need of some other seasonings to make it stand out. Too much cheese. There are much better and more flavorful egg casseroles out there.

I am getting ready to make this for the second time. This is really yummy. The only issue that I had was with the flour. If you add it as the recipe states it will be lumpy. I did and then had to try to remove the lumps and some of the liquid and shook it all up in a jar. No lumps. Also used fresh mushrooms and added pepper jack cheese. Leftovers can be reheated for a very quick breakfast. Thanks for posting

This recipe was a hit at our school breakfast brunch!!

Excellent and easy! BUT I recommend you change the order of the layers. The cheese on the bottom burned. ( this made it very difficult to clean the baking dish, too.). Next time I will butter the bottom of the baking dish. the best way to layer is to first place the veggies on the bottom. Then the Canadian bacon. Then the layer of cheese. Top it off with egg mixture. Thank you for the easy and delicious recipe.

Everyone in our family loved this, including the mushroom haters. The only things I changed were to chop fresh mushrooms instead of using jarred ones, use fresh basil instead of dried, and to switch the order of ingredients in the egg mixture. I didn't want lumpy batter, so I mixed the dry ingredients, slowly whisked in the milk, then beat in the eggs.

REALLY FABULOUS! I have a thing about should be optional in all things in my opinion and so my little family has had to learn to just add some to whatever they want. so...I didn't add any cheese. also I didn't sautee the veggies first, I just chopped up fresh mushrooms, green onions, green peppers and deli turkey. I whipped up the egg part, poured it in the pan threw the vegetables and turkey over the top, added some ground pepper and baked it. REALLY FABULOUS! it was just one of those nights where I seem to get everything backwards but fortunately this egg bake with some toast and a glass of milk made a really, really REALLY FABULOUS dinner!

Changes I made: Sauteed the veggie mix in olive oil instead and added a little red onion, green pepper, fresh sliced mushroom, and a package of thawed, drained frozen spinach. Also used fresh basil. The ham added enough salt - next time I would not add extra salt. Did everything the night before and put it in the fridge and baked it just a little longer the next morning (about 50-55 minutes) since it was cold. I think I will also reduce the bottom layer of cheese next time, too. Other than being a little salty, though, it was WONDERFUL and loaded with good flavor!
