    Perfect for Easter Brunch!

    Sandy Nelson from St. Paul, MN

    This was perfect for our Easter brunch. Super easy for me to make and everyone loved it. Next time, I might try it with broccoli instead and omit the green pepper for wider appeal.

    Added more meat

    Lori Budahn from Cottage Grove, MN

    I added a julienne cut ham steak to ensure there was enough meat in this dish since I was serving it as a supper main dish.

    Best Casserole Ever!

    Deborah Marks from Jacksonville, FL

    I've been making this casserole for years now. It's the only dish I'm allowed to bring for company events because they love it so much. It's easy and delicious. I've used diced ham and smoked sausage in the recipe before and they both give it a unique flavor.

    Super good to feed a crowd!

    Candus Lunderberg from Saint Peter, MN

    I made this as part of my son's high school graduation party brunch. We fed 150 people and served this casserole along with fresh fruit and sweet breads. We made only one change to the recipe which was to add chopped ham instead of bacon. It was a huge hit. I ended up sending the recipe in more than a few thank you cards!!

    Feeds a crowd for pennies

    Adrienne Guarro from York, PA

    We hosted 8 teenage boys in our home for the weekend, and I needed a breakfast option that would be quick, easy, and affordable. I doubled this recipe, and replaced the bacon with cooked and crumbled turkey sausage. Everyone raved about how good it was, and kept going back for 2nds, and 3rds. To save time, I even made the casserole the night before and stored it covered in the fridge till the morning. Then, I added an extra 10 minutes to the cooking time. I will make this recipe again and again. Thank you for sharing it.

    Perfect for my hubby

    Samantha McKenzie from Saginaw, MI

    This recipe is great, as my husband loves a hearty breakfast, but so many things contain bacon - and he just doesn't like the fatty (delicious - in my opinion) food. However, turkey bacon is a favorite and it brings great flavor to this recipe. Thanks once again!

    A hit!

    DENISE BOTTING from La Grande, OR

    I made this casserole for a brunch pot luck at work and served it with salsa. It was a hit! I substituted red peppers for the green peppers and used a mexican cheese blend instead of the cheddar cheese.

    Excellent Hash Brown Casserole

    Kathy Cole from Fairfield, AL

    My family really enjoyed this casserole. It was easy to make and very good. I did add 1 extra cup of cheese and diced ham, and 1 extra egg, that was because my family and I like alot of cheese and meat in our casseroles, other than the additions mentioned, I followed the recipe. Best casserole I ever made, will definitely make again.

    Great breakfast dish

    Kevin Dugan from Bluffton, SC

    been waiting 4 this one!

    Tom Budles from Hot Springs National Park, AR

    Tried this for supper t'nite. Pretty good! Just plain food. I made it pizza~like w/ mini pepperoni, bell pep and onion and 1 tsp of cajun seasoning blend. Layering flavors might help:: Maybe if you toss the thawed potatoes in seasoning & a little melted butter::(garlic, basil, thyme etc.)

    BEST BREAKFAST/ LUNCH/SUPPER /BRUNCH

    ann novick from Nw Hampshire

    As empty nesters( only 2 adults @ home to feed now)the number of servings as originally submitted was just too much for us. I cut the recipe way down ( made only one fourth of it). We both really loved it. I make it ahead of time, cool, cover & keep it chilled. At serving time either one of us can slice a portion or two off & microwave reheat it. Grab a beverage; a piece of fruit and a few cookies for a perfect "finally home after a day full of busy-ness: shopping, misc appointments or volunteering When the (six) grands visit. the FULL RECIPE will be made & enjoyed by all; while still having plenty of time for visiting & having fun. This is the recipe I've been looking for all my married life.

    Easy peasy

    Joell McDonald from

    I am not that fond of hash browns, but my husband loves them. So I tried this for something different for breakfast. Even the kids loved it. We put salsa on top and that gave it a great little kick. Thanks for this quick easy recipe.

    Great for a Sunday Morning

    Wm haver from ocala florida

    Nice for a meatless dinner as well as a brunch food. Substituted the Southwestern stlye hash browns for the regular ones for a little extra punch of flaver and added some crumbled bacon. Yummy!!!

    Rather Bland

    Cathy Horton from Fort Mill, SC

    I followed the recipe with the exception of the 2 changes listed below. I used 1 lb of bulk breakfast sausage instead of ham or bacon. I also used 7 extra large eggs. All in all, we found this to be rather bland. It was ok but I don't think I'll be making it again.

    Hash Brown Casserole

    JUDY WHITE STURTEVANT STURTEVANT from Gautier, MS

    I'm a potato lover, so this recipe was a pleasure to try. My family enjoyed the variation from the usual hash brown servings, so I know we will prepare this again and again as a breakfast favorite.

    Great dish for any occasion

    Donna Barrett from Chase, KS

    This casserole gets rave reviews for every event I have served it. It's great when I have company because it can be made the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning.

    easy breakfast

    rachael ruiz from Sanger, CA

    I made this for our cousins who spent the night last weekend and it was perfect and easy to make when you have guests in the house. I used canadian bacon because we do not care for turkey bacon, and canadian bacon is very low fat, since we are trying to watch our weight. Easy clean up too compared to a big greasy breakfast!!

    Great weekend breakfast. Liked it so well, tried it "Mexican" - using roasted green chilies instead of green peppers & sausage for ham. And made it all with vegetarian "meats"! Will make over and over...

    pretty good

    Jenn Larabee from Herriman, UT

    For some reason my casserole seemed a bit crumbly. I think I must have use a tad too many hashbrowns or needed a few more eggs. I think next time I'll add 2 more eggs & a bit more salt.

    Very Bland

    Marilyn Hernandez from Holiday, FL

    My husband just told me it was his turn to bring the office breakfast, so I thought I would try this 5 star rated recipe. I added green chilies in hopes of making it tastier, and baked a small portion for myself to try. This tastes like nothing, very bland. I am sending salsa with it to the office, but will not make it again.
