When I need to feed a crowd this is the recipe I use. It is delicious. There are never any leftovers - even if I make two pans. The guys in my office request it often. YUM!

Mine looked nothing like the picture so maybe something went wrong. It was just a mushy, greasy mess. Not good at all.

This is a really good hearty breakfast casserole. Probably one of the best I've ever had. I increased the bacon since my family loves bacon. I drained it well for several minutes to get as much of the fat out as possible. Other than increasing the bacon some, I didn't change anything and didn't need to. Put leftovers in the fridge and we had for breakfast the next day. It reheats well. Served with some warm soft freshly baked Cresent rolls. Thanks for sharing.

This has been my go-to recipe for a long time (it was originally posted long ago). It is delicious as it stands, but is so adaptable. I generally cut the recipe in half and make it in an 8x8 or 9x9 pan. I have added, in no particular order, minced jalapenos, a can of drained Rotel tomatoes and chilis, green peppers, red peppers, turkey sausage, hot sausage, bacon, and various cheeses (regular or low-fat), depending on what I have on hand. (Please note: I have never added these all at once; this is a list of possible additions you might have on hand. And if you're halving the recipe and are enthusiastic in your additions, use 5 eggs instead of 4.) Also, I use the packaged southwest-style hash browns in place of the plain hash browns. One suggestion: the only thing I found among the cheeses that I couldn't replace is the cottage cheese. It really is essential for creaminess. The one time I made this without, the casserole was brick-like, edible, but not nearly as good as usual. I often make this on a Sunday morning and cut the leftovers in squares and refrigerate or freeze, to be eaten during the week or later. Thank you for this delicious addition to AllRecipes.

My favorite. So delicious and easy! I love that there's no bread in it. Not a swiss cheese fan, but it's delicious in this! YUMMY!

This is really good! For potatoes, I cut red potatoes w/ skin on into small cubes and sauteed til just slightly fork tender, in a small amount of some reserved bacon fat but w/ lid on pan to steam them so I didn't have to use too much grease to cook them. (I make 1 1/2 times recipe so had 6 cups of cube potatoes) Precooked the potatoes, cooked the bacon and onion the day before and then just added the eggs and cheese the day I made it. I also used 2 -10 oz frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and water squeezed out thru colander, then added to the egg mixture. 1 1/2 X the recipe w/ fresh cut potatoes and spinach as above filled an 11 X 14 casserole dish and served 16. 350 X 1 hr or so.

This. Was. Delicious! I made this for Christmas breakfast, and the family raved about it. I prepared it last night following the exact recipe, and set it in the fridge overnight. Baked at 350 for 1 hour this morning. Would make sure the hash browns are fully thawed and DRY before placing in the mix (otherwise could be sloppy or ruined by too much moisture). Also, did have to use paper towels to absorb grease from the top of the dish. Afterward this dish was not greasy looking or tasting. I will make this again and again!

My daughter had this when we were over at their house last christmas. On birthdays at our house you get to choose what you want for your birthday. My husband chose this. I am not crazy about breakfast casseroles, but this one is the best I have ever had.
