Recipe Comments & Reviews

I have given out the recipe for this wonderful dish more than any other. Everyone loves it and there are never any left overs!!!! It is sooooo good.
It's easy and delicious. I have made it several times for brunch and each time my guests have raved about it and wanted the recipes. It's a sure hit.
Made this for brunch...it was delicious!!! Thoroughly recommend it!
This is a great recipe for dinner as well as brunch. Very tasty and a nice husband pleaser. I'd advise putting a little oil on the baking dish before adding ingrediants - make it easier to serve.
This dish is delicious exactly as printed. I made it again using spicy breakfast sausage and four Mexican cheeses, but it was not as good. It's so easy to prepare and very tasty. Everyone asked me for the recipe.
