  1. Me and my mom want to make at least half a pan because we have never tried this before. How would you recommend we do that? 1 cup of milk, 4 eggs and 1lb of sausage? Am I correct?

  2. I think Sondra had a good and delicious ides to add Cheddar Cheese Soup to the milk. Also some of the runny recipes could be from the differences in the oven temps. Some ovens sugguest you test for accuracy on temperature…. and some may have baked covered.

  3. Does the tator tots turned to mush while sitting in the milk and egg mixture after sitting in the fridge overnight?

  4. Just made this! Did not make ahead and was not runny. It had the perfect crsipyness to it. My husband said it was the best breakfast he's ever had. Only thing was I halved the recipe since only for him and I. Thanks for the amazing recipe and happy holidays!

  5. Just made this and my husband said it's the best breakfast ever! I did not make this ahead and it turned out perfect. Not runny and crispy, how we like it. Only change was I halved the recipe since just for him and I. Thanks for the recipe! Merry Christmas!

  6. I can say the key to this is it is a MAKE AHEAD….if you do THAT and let it sit it will turn out perfectly…the liquid wont be an issue if it's make ahead or frozen, as stated.

    Thank you for a GREAT recipe, following directions, it's perfection!

    1. No it won't. I am making this right now as we speak and i made it exactly to the T. I made it ahead and i am now twenty minutes past the time it called for, so far.

  7. So I've made this once before and my whole family loved it. I want to make it again for Christmas morning but need to prep it two mornings ahead of time. Will it keep in the fridge for that long before baking?? Thanks!

  8. 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.

    1. How did that method work for you? How long did you "reheat" it for the next morning? I am doing the same thing, bringing it for a pot luck the next morning, but I deff don't have time to cook it for 2 hours before I leave for work.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
