    Really Good!

    Crystle Minor from Wisconsin

    I used sausage instead of bacon and added green pepper to the onions and cooked them before baking. Last but not least I used regular hash browns not the frozen and it turned out perfect!

    Potato Bacon Casserole

    ADINE CATHEY from MONTICELLO, KY

    I am a cheese lover, so I added more sharp cheddar cheese and another 1/2 cup of chopped - very fine - onion. I like lots of cheese and onion in a combination dish. I also fry and crumble plenty of bacon in a dish this size. Family favorite.

    Super easy and versatile

    Jeanette Yara from ,

    I make this often for breakfast when my children and their families come to visit. I usually make a double recipe and will make half with chorizo and half with bacon or mild sausage. This can be made the day before by leaving out the egg mixture and adding it before baking.

    MY KIND OF RECIPE

    Ann Novick from NASHUA, NH

    I love to " play around" w/ recipes. This one was perfect for me. I used baked ham in small cubes/diced & shredded Swiss cheese; There are still so many other ways to have fun w/ this recipe.

    Potato Bacon Casserole

    Jeannine Gramstad from Newburgh, NY

    My family didn't realize I used turkey bacon. Knew I'd get away with it because many ingredients. 2% evap milk tastes just as good & again, they don't know. Gave to boys to sample. All ate for a late-morning snack/lunch (depends on what time each teen woke up)

    Potato Turkey Sausage Casserole

    Maureen Wilson from MARIETTA, GA

    I made the casserole but I used turkey sausage instead of bacon and it was very delicious. The children loved it for their Thanksgiving breakfast. I would make it again for then and their friends for their sleepover.

    THIS WAS AWESOME

    Mike ODonnell from Grand Rapids, MI

    This was awesome my family inhaled it. I couldn't believe how fast it went. Even our 12 year old had seconds and she normally eats like a bird. I added some stuff to help give it some flavor it was a little blah. Green peppers and some ground black pepper did the trick

    Ole, muy bueno

    Eileen Fukunaga from Monterey, CA

    This is improved with the addition of a can of diced green chiles. You can substitute chorizo, (or soyrizo, which I prefer) for the bacon. Omit the salt.

    GREAT AS A MEAL OR SIDE DISH

    The only change I made was skipped the salt and added some crushed red pepper flakes (we like spice!) My son (15) ate most of it even though he said he wouldn't like it lol

    I didn't have the bacon so I used sausage instead. My husband said that it had excellent flavor (I agree with him). Next time I'll have to use bacon.

    Great recipe

    Betty King from CANON CITY, CO

    This is delicious but I had my own variations: I sauteed the onions with some chopped red peppers then added them. I used freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese and 2 additional eggs.

    OK, but missing something...

    Janice Mitchell from HARRISONBURG, VA

    Personally, I liked this dish. My family didnt like it so well. It did seem to lack something. Not sure exactly what though. Would work very well as a side dish instead of a main brunch dish. Was very easy to make.

    Very Good

    Lisa Hines from MOUNT JULIET, TN

    I used hot sausage instead of bacon for a bridal brunch. Everyone really liked it. I also used less seasoned salt. I doubled it and made it the day before. I will certainly make it again.
