  1. 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!!!

    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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

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

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

  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 thaw or cook the tots at all before they go into the mix? cant imaging throwing in frozen tots and having it all cook correctly..

    1. Patti – the ingredients listed are correct with correct amounts. You can change anything you wish, but I can't say that it would turn out.

  8. Had to cook it longer than stated and was runny, but it had great taste. Will cut down on milk and increase eggs next time.

    1. I cooked per instructions and it came out fully cooked. Second time I halved the sausage and added bacon(cooked before hand) , onion, and mushrooms. Still no issue with cooking through. I cooked for an hour then sprinkled more shredded cheese on top and cooked ten more minutes.

  9. 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
