The original recipe is delicious, but this is my healthier version, with less fat and calories. It also freezes beautifully and individual portions can be reheated in 3 minutes in the microwave. As a single person, I can't eat 8 portions at one sitting, so I divide and freeze. But it's great if family visits, because I can have the portions ready to reheat, and it's also great if you're in a hurry in the morning and don't have time to cook before heading off to work.

Yum. I had regular hash browns in freezer so I used those, baked them up on their own first to get a little crunchy. Has regular plain egg beaters so I added onions, cilantro and red pepper flakes to compensate. I enjoyed this and look forward to the leftovers.. oh I think I used a bit more egg and added fresh cracked pepper

I really loved this recipe! I actually used the southwest egg beaters and after the cheese, I topped it with green onions chopped and cilantro like the other review suggested. My friends LOVED this recipe! The entire dish was devoured in under and hour. Great recipe!

Everyone loved this casserole, and we aren't really casserole people! Made it for after Christmas morning and had to make it again this snowy morning. I used one roll of crumbled Jimmy Dean Sage sausage instead of Canadian bacon. Also used less cheese (cheddar only) - just enough to create a layer, which was probably about 2.5 cups. One Egg Beater package was a bit short of 1 3/4 cups so I added one egg as well. Served with green onion, cilantro, and sour cream on the side. Delicious! Cooking time was right on target.
