  2. I make something similar only to the milk and eggs I add one can of Campbell's cheddar cheese soup. I get asked to bring it to every potluck. I also add in some peppers and one jalapeño

    1. I used frozen tater tots. I didn't thaw them, but you certainly can thaw them if you prefer. Enjoy!

  6. My boyfriend and I have tried this twice now. The second time we used 10 eggs and 1 cup of milk because the cooking time was longer than expected the first time we followed the recipe by the book. We also layer it the second time around. It's cooking in the oven now and smells delicious!

  7. Do you bake this covered or uncovered?

  8. Have you ever made ahead and frozen it? Do you also add egg mixture before freezing and does it have to thawed before baking?

  9. Curious to know the answers to Aunt Marie's questions as well...what is the best way to freeze this for later?

  10. I made the mistake of putting a tray under mine, and the bottom didn't cook. I remedied that by frying in a pan, but next time I know better. Taste is delicious ... this is a Sunday Brunch keeper, for sure.

  12. I'm with Aunt Marie and M&L Stewart.... I'm making this for a family vacation in 2 weeks. Do I cook it now & freeze it? Or, wrap in foil and cook it on vacation?

    1. assemble the casserole and cover it with foil and freeze it - don't bake it. Have the new Mom thaw and bake as directed above.

  14. I made this tonight. I had to cook it 10 minutes longer because the eggs were still runny. Next time I think I will add bell peppers. For just two of us we halved the recipe. We enjoyed it very much!!!

  17. If I am baking this casserole for 100. Can you tell me about how much longer I should cook if I have 2-3 casseroles in the oven at a time? Or should I not use both the top and bottom racks? Thanks.

  18. I just made this casserole, and it came out great! Might I suggest adding specifically to the directions that you bake uncovered? I assumed that it should be baked covered since the directions mention covering (and then refrigerating if baking later), and I have a feeling that many of these comments saying that it came out runny are from people who covered the casserole to bake since leaving uncovered would drastically reduce the final liquidity.

  19. I have made this casserole on numerous occasions (uncovered) and I have had to bake it for at least two hours each time. If not the eggs are super runny! It is DELICIOUS if you have the time to bake it! I am going to try and make it again tonight for a pot luck at work the following morning. It seems to reheat great so I am thinking bake it tonight, reheat in oven tomorrow morning.
