My family has requested this every weekend now for the past three weeks! That's saying a lot since they rarely like to eat the same thing over and over.

This is a delicious breakfast casserole. I usually make it the night before so breakfast is a breeze. Great flavor.

This recipe was a huge hit this weekend! Thank you for sharing it! I made it the night before and baked it the next morning. Was nice that I didn't have to fuss with assembling it while our guests were waiting for breakfast! Everyon really enjoyed it.

This recipe sounds terrific - since it was mentioned that one could use spinach and mushrooms also, does anyone know if they should be cooked before they are added? Would love to know and will report back after I serve it on Dec. 11th! Thanks!

This recipe is a keeper! I made it for my book club and everyone raved about it and clamored for the recipe. It's very forgiving, too --if you don't have exact amounts on hand, it still comes out great.

I am so happy to see this recipe here! I've been making this casserole for about 25 years (thank you, Virginia) but just realized today that I misplaced my recipe. Iwas heartbroken, but am now thrilled to see that this is exactly the same recipe I've always used. Absolutely delicious casserole! It's much different than all the other breakfast casseroles out there and everyone always loves it.

My version of this recipe had the addition of 1-2 cups of cubed ham. I buy a slice of baked ham, trim and cube it, and add just one cup of ham to the mixture.
This is a casserole that my guests really like. It is good with fresh cranberry sauce or a hot baked fruit recipe if your family likes it.

I make this for Christmas morning every year. I also make it for when I'm having a house full of overnighters. Suprisingly, kids absolutely love this recipe. My families favorite!

I made this for a ladie's luncheon. Made the dish up ahead and refrigerated overnight. Was absolutely wonderful. I didn't add anything but the green chiles. Only thing that I would add is that I had to bake it for 55 minutes before it was done...not even close at 35...maybe because it was refrigerated. Thank you
