I've made this twice now, and it really does help to layer the hashbrowns on the bottom of your pan, bake them first until they start to brown (I turn the oven way up to 450 and dot butter on top), and then add the rest of your ingredients (and bake at 350). After doing this, I found that the total baking time was shorter than the recipe stated. The texture was much better too.

YUMMY!!! I followed the other suggestions and put the hash browns in first instead of mixing it. I added a couple of shakes of salt and pepper on top of the hash browns and I baked them in the oven for about 10 minutes before pouring the egg mixture over the top. I didn't put quite the amount of milk this recipe called for. I only put 1 cup in, if that. 2 cups just sounded too much, and would be very runny. I also added a few shakes of salt and pepper to the egg mixture because of some comments that the dish was a little bland. This was smelled great while cooking and tasted just as wonderful! Delicious!! Thank you Stephanie! This is definatley a keeper!

I modified this for a large crowd at work. I used 12 eggs, 1 1/2 cups skim milk, 1 cup lite sour cream, bacon and diced ham. I combined cheeses, including reduced fat cheddar, for a more healthy, lower-fat meal. I followed another reviewer's advice and put the hash browns in first and I think that worked well. I made it up the night before and cooked it in the morning. Word of advice -- allow a significantly longer cooking time when refrigerated. I needed to increase oven temp. to 375 degrees and needed another full hour in the second part of the cycle, for a total of 1 hour 45 minutes. It was still hot when I arrived at work and was gone in minutes. Certainly the best breakfast casserole I've ever tasted and if the reviews from work were accurate, a sure crowd-pleaser. I supplied the recipe to a number of co-workers as they loved it too!
