Thought it was great, although I did add a little sausage. Also don't think it made enough for 4 people. Barely fed my husband and I. Next time I'll just double it.

Do a pre baked crust in bottom of dish of hash browns.mixed w chopped onion green pepper garlic half stick melted butter half cup reduced fat cheered cheese. I would add chopped spinach and mushrooms to recipe dash red hot.

Looks and sounds really good...interested in trying recipes...

easy, fast and ooh it was sooo good!! The 2nd time I made it I added some leftover chopped spinach...yummies!

Good-Day"Hi,CINDYOH, What a Great-Idea?EGG Casserole! You're Love Trying This easy Healthy Breakfast-Idea-Recipe!!..bursting w/ Nutritional-flavor's...Just Super...CynthiaHarvin32@yaHOO.COM

can shredded potatoes go in this in place of bead cubes

The bread cubes in this recipe work to absorb the liquid, so that this casserole bakes up like a souffle. If you'd like to try it with potatoes, you would have to reduce the amount of liquid used and add in some flour in order to bind the potatoes. We have not tried it this way, and would not recommend doing it in this particular recipe.

I am not much on the egg substitute. Even though I need the diabetic recipe, how many or what amount of eggs would I use in place of the egg sub? Thanks for your help. It sound great.

In place of the 1/2 cup of liquid egg substitute you can use 2 eggs.

Is it good leftover? I need something quick in the morning before work

Yes, this cheesy egg casserole will hold up as a leftover dish. It will heat fine in a microwave or toaster oven. Thanks for your question!

This is such a great dish! It comes together in a flash, and my family loves it!
