Great Recipe! We did substitute bulk turkey breakfast sausage that our local meat market makes fresh (less fat & can't tell the difference) and also added fresh asparagus & roasted red peppers! Everyone loved it!!!

    A Family Favorite

    Cheri Keplinger from ,

    An excellent recipe to have on hand. My family loves this dish. I make it up on Christmas Eve, then, Christmas morning I just pop it in the oven and enjoy watching the kids open their goodies while it bakes. It's ready to eat about the same time as the gifts are all opened. So simple to make, yet delicious to eat, too.

    Company

    Fran Yanta from Grantsville, MD

    I started making this recipe 9 years ago, but did not use Carnation evaporated milk. It was a holiday brunch casserole, a "companies coming" weekend casserole, and our favorite, grandchildrens night, casserole. The evaporated milk really adds more creamy goodness to it. The grandchildren who don't like eggs even like this.

    A relaxing breakfast

    jeanne henderson from Sykesville, MD

    This recipe is great! When we have friends over and they spend the night, I fix this the night before and then heat it up the next morning. It so much nicer than scurrying around in the kitchen in the morning to get everyone fed! (And you don't have to take orders to see what everyone wants:)

    Amazing

    Kathy Palladino from ,

    I made this for my Mother's Day annual brunch for my mother & mother in law a few yrs ago. Everyone loved it especially my husband. I make it alot. I reduce the fat though by using rdf JD sausage, egg beaters & 2% fat shredded cheese. It tastes just like the full fat version. My husband can't tell the difference! Great recipe to have on hand.

    Breakfast Brunch

    kathleen DuBois from Brookfield, WI

    This recipe is excellent, I used left over HAM instead of sausage & added chopped red peppers & Onions. This makes for easy brunch meal, potluck, or just a GREAT make ahead meal.

    Can be cut in half

    Christine Hanson from Eagle River, AK

    I made this but only made half the recipe. And I added a few chopped pre-Sautéd onions and substituted evaporated skim milk and used 1/2 egg substitute and eggs along with 100% whole wheat bread. Actually, leftovers freeze well too, in single portion sizes in sealable bags.

    Very Yummy!

    Amy Nichols from Las Vegas, NV

    Even my picky-eater-6-year old loved it! Very easy to make and a family fav. I made this on Christmas Eve (we do a big Christmas Eve deal here) and again on New Year's Day. It was fabulous!!

    Lighten this up!

    Martie wynne from Evanston, IL

    OK, this is great but too much fat. I like: 2 pkg lite precooked sausage sliced thin for sausage 16 oz egg substitute + two eggs for 10 eggs evaporated skim milk for whole REALLY serious?? 5 cups of whole wheat low cal bread for 4 cups regular. Lite cheese for regular same measure How many calories/fat are saved? I don't know but lots obviously

    Brunch Awesomeness

    Ann Rittenhouse from Salem, Oregon

    What a great way to start the day! I made this for my family on a Saturday morning before we went school shopping. It was fast and easy and all the goodness of a huge breakfast in one easy dish. I substituted maple sausage and medium cheddar cheese cause that is what I had on hand. It was great. Our new favorite for Saturday mornings.

    "New" Family Favorite

    Betty Rader from PARMA, OH

    This recipe is very similar to one I have made for 20+ years given to me by my mother-in-law. This one is much easier to make and just as good if not better! Thank you for our "new" family favorite! It's so easy it's not just for holidays anymore!

    Brunch Casserole

    Kathi Gilman from Aliso Viejo, CA

    I made this recipe for my church worship team today (I had to substitute the sausage with bacon...thought I had thawed sausage from the freezer but it was bacon!) & it was HIT! I had salsa as a condiment for those that wanted to spice it up a bit. The evaporated milk gave it a "silky" texture. I will definitely make this again!!

    not just for breakfast

    Deborah Richards from Bennington, VT

    I put this casserole together in the morning and when I got home from work popped it in the oven.I spent time with the family while it baked instead of spending that time preparing dinner. I served it with some fresh friut and it was enjoyed by the whole family. Leftovers packed well for lunches also.

    The Best!

    Christy Vining-Russell from Southington, CT

    This recipe is a old family favorite served on Christmas morning. I have a handwritten copy, smudged from moisture on the recipe card. Have been trying to decipher for years (family member deceased) and am so happy to be able to "fill in" the gaps! We'd make it Christmas Eve, then pop in the oven while we opened presents. Really filling! Actually its great for any holiday morning - filling and keeps everybody full til the BIG dinner! A real keeper!

Brunch is served.
