What an awesome recipe made even better by so many reviews with suggestions! First of all, I KNEW that I had to make this in a 13x9" pan. No way does this fit in a 2-qt or 8x8 pan. I chose a stoneware-type so it would retain heat as long as possible as I needed to transport it. Using so many of your recommendations, I assembled it the night before, I pre-cooked the froz.potatoes w/3 Tbsp melted butter (Brummel&Brown in my case) for 30 mins.@400F, and cooled completely before layering.I used 4 eggs equiv. (i.e. 1 cup) of EggBeaters, 1/2C fat-free half&half, reduced-fat bulk pork sausage,a little leftover chopped ham (if I'd had some bacon I'd have added that, too), chopped peppers w/the onions, minced garlic, a splash of Frank's Red Hot Wings sauce, finely shredded reduced-fat Mexican style 4-cheese blend (I used a bit less than 12 oz. and it was fine), freshly ground peppercorns, salt, and kept everything else the same per original recipe. I put the refrigerated dish into the cold oven, then turned it on so it could gradually heat up, and started the 1 hr. from there. Plus just under the 10 mins. uncovered, it was cooked to perfection. NO leftovers. It was a hit. LOVE a recipe that can be tweaked in so many ways and come out great!
