Hearty Breakfast Egg Bake

I always fix this casserole ahead of time when overnight guests are visiting so I have more time to spend with them. Then I simply add some toast or biscuits and fresh fruit for a complete meal that everyone loves. This dish also reheats well. –Pamela Norris, Fenton, Missouri

    I browned the hashbrowns a little first, also added 1 tsp dry mustard. Very good.

    So good and so easy! I did make a couple of substitutions - used Ore-Ida Potatoes O'Brien instead of shredded hash browns for added flavor, and used Jimmy Dean precooked turkey sausage crumbles instead of pork sausage. There are many egg casserole recipes; I consider this one of the best - quick to fix and a hit with the family. Also easy to adjust to personal taste.

    I make this every Christmas morning! It's a tradition we all look forward to. You cannot go wrong with this recipe. It's the best way to get breakfast on the table while everyone is unwrapping gifts.

    This recipe is amazing. I make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. I misplaced mine after a divorce I think the ex took it along with other favorites) and was SO HAPPY to find it again. I thought I had it burnt into my memory but not quite. I like to add sausage, bacon and ham cubed up (meat lovers way). Also I add a can of green chilies. I change it up a bit each year. But it's GREAT just the way it is. It made my day to and going to make my holidays finding it again. Thank you for submitting it. You made this old Country gal HAPPY!!!

    Delicious and easy to make. Family doesn't love mushrooms so I used cream of chicken soup. Turned out great. Will definitely make again.

    This is awesome and my go to brunch dish. I use one package of refrigerator hash browns instead of frozen and combine the soup and milk first before adding whisked eggs. It's great with sausage but the other breakfast meats are also good in this!
