Very good - would give it 5 stars but I did make some alterations. First, I used about 1 1/2 cups of croutons, 5 eggs and 1 cup of milk. Otherwise, the casserole would have been very flat in an 8x8 dish. I used crumbled bacon instead of ham, and with the butter and cheese, the casserole was a bit greasy so next time I would cut down on the butter a bit. Would also possibly add some diced onions for extra flavor. Overall, a very easy and tasty recipe. WILL make again! ***UPDATE***Made again without butter (coated croutons with butter flavored cooking spray). Tasted just as good but a lot less greasy. Also rolled the crumbled bacon in paper towel to remove some grease.

I hate to say anything negative but I have to put my 2 cents worth into this. The croutons did nothing for this recipe. I have made a 'great' breakfast casserole for fellow workers, but this would not have been it. I have eaten some sorry egg casseroles at B & B's and this was to me like some of them, unimpressive. Sorry, but I won't make this one again. Some people are easier to please than me. I am a 'breakfast person'. My husband wasn't impressed either.

Very YUMMY! My fiance and I have made it 3 times already since discovering it! I've even tried baking it immediately after preparing it, as opposed to letting it sit for a while, and it turned out just as good. I've also used ripped up hamburger bun pieces instead of croutons and that worked fine too. I now cut down on the amount of butter as previous reviewers suggested and the casserole is much less greasy. Oh yes, I also use 5 eggs and a tad more milk to fill the pan a bit more, but the casserole fluffs up a bit while baking. Thanks for the great recipe!

YUM!!!!! This is a great and easy recipe to make for breakfast! I did add 6 eggs insted of 4 and used 1 cup of milk instead of 3/4 to avoid any "burning" of the croutons. I have made this three times now and each time I try something new..I'll add green and red bell peppers and onions and the next I added fresh sliced mushrooms. Very Tasty! In fact, I plan to double the recipe and make for the upcoming Easter holiday. Thank you Pat!

I made this Christmas morning. Did not have croutons so I put some bread in the oven and toasted it and then cubed it and used that. Delicious! This recipe is definitely a keeper, and one that I'll use again and again. Everyone loved it!

This was excellent, wonderful flavor. I cooked it in a loaf pan and had no trouble with too dry. The boyfriend actually commented on how tasty it was, and he's not into eggs! I made it as stated, except had no croutons so I just cut up a piece of toast. Nommy! UPDATE: This time I am trying to clean out the fridge, so I added some cottage cheese, half a green pepper, a chopped roma tomato, a little spinach and some basil. Used toast again and had white cheddar on hand. Popped it in the fridge about 4 pm and threw it in the oven at 6:45. Took about an hour to cook with all the extra stuff-and I had to dump out a LOT of extra grease-but turned out great! Much richer with the cottage cheese.

I have tried a dozen breakfast casseroles in the last month and this is just the one I was looking for. Taste Great! Simple! Wonderful!

This turned out GREAT! As most of us do - I try to cut back here and there. Where it called for butter I used "I cant believe its not butter" and I made my own croutons (baked). I heard its healthier to do so (store bought ones are fried. I used low fat cheese & milk! YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW! Great recipe..... Thank You
