Great recipe! I cut it in half, used 4 cups hash browns instead of bread, added green pepper and jalapenos.
this was not a hit at my house. It's Chritmas morning, and I think I should have made eggs and sausage seperately. Too much bread, had to cook an extra half an hour and it's still soggy inside...the kids sort of like it, my husband and I choked it down since we waited so long to eat. Next time...if I ever make it again I will use hash browns, or tater tots instead of the bread, I would also add more cheese and less milk (although I did already cut it down by half a cup). recipe isn't "terrible" but definately needs a little help.
This recipe turned out so good! I made it ahead of time, froze it, then let it thaw in the fridge before baking it. I used a whole dozen eggs, 2 cups milk, and 1 cup half and half. I served it for a brunch and my guests loved it! They ate all of it up, there were no leftovers at all. It was a huge hit. This is such a great recipe to make ahead of time if you are having guests and need a good dish to fill all of them up!
Made this for Christmas. Prepared it the night before and cooked it in the morning. It was delicious. One I will make again!
I always make this the night before and it is always wonderful. I think the people that are having trouble with the amount of liquid / cook time my not be measuring the bread crumbs. 6 cups is not 6 slices, it is 10 or more depending on your bread. You should not have to adjust the eggs or milk or the cook time. Don't be afraid of this one it is the best egg bake I have ever tried.
12/26/07 update: we make this every year for Christmas morning. This year tried to freeze it on 12/23 due work schedule. It did not come out quite as well after freezing. It also added quite a bit of time to cooking, even after thawed, due to added fluid. Still awesome!
First review in 2005:
This was wonderful. I assembled a full 24 hours ahead of time and then baked and served on Christmas morning. I used a smaller pan, the oval Corning dish, as suggested by another reviewer. It was wonderful that way. I also put in oneless egg, per everyone's recommendations.
Delicious! Easy to make and a hit with the whole family! I used spicy sausage the 2nd time I made it and it was so good! :) Thanks Jimmy Dean!
We made it exactly as it was written and it was amazing! The whole casserole was gone in one sitting! Everyone was asking for the recipe.
