Easy to make for a brunch or potluck. My family liked it. It did take closer to the 9 hour mark to cook. I served it with salsa and sour cream.

I didn't like this recipe at all but my boyfriend thought it was okay, but nothing special. The recipe is easy to follow and was simple to make. This had NO flavor. Even after adding more cheese and salsa or hot sauce was bland. This could be good if you were serving a bunch of people and you don't have a clue about their tastes.

I made a few modifications. Instead of sausage, I used bacon. I added a fire-roasted jalapeño and Anahein chile to the veggie layer. And I had only the potatoes and cheese on top, kept the bacon and veggies in two internal layers (so it went: 1/3 of potatoes, 1/2 of bacon, 1/2 of veggies, 1/3 of cheese, 1/3 of potatoes, 1/2 of bacon, 1/2 of veggies, 1/3 of cheese, q/3 of potatoes, 1/3 of cheese). It had a pretty good flavor and it certainly was convenient. Leftovers tomorrow!

This was excellent. Not sure why it has gotten low ratings. I cooked it in my Ninja slow cooker and it was done before 8 hours. It actually was done within 7 because the top was really brown, but everbody loved it. I am making it again tomorrow with chorizo.

I made this last night for potluck at work. I made with hot italian sausage which was very good. If I make again I would use a few more eggs and more cheese. Took a little longer than 8 hours to cook all the way.

Worked better with bacon than sausage I thought. I may try it with linguica soon though.
