I made this for Easter brunch for 20 big Navy guys, they absolutly loved it. I made two huge pans and they both came out perfect. I was very happy that the middle did not come out soggy. One of the pans I ended up baking a bit longer and it was still excellent. I did make some modifications that went well. I put almost a pound of mild cheddar cheese in each casserole. Six slices was not nearly enough for my Wisconsin raised husband. I didn't exactly trim the bread well and it didn't make a difference. All I used was one small onion for one of the casseroles. 3 seemed way to overpowering. The other casserole I left without onion. What I would suggest for others is spray the bottom of the pan with cooking spray just "incase". Also, you can use less egg/milk and still end up with a good casserole.

This recipe was terrible. 3 Onions? I used 2 and that was plenty. But, the worst part was that the casserole was extremely soggy. After cooking it for 2 hours (until the top and bottom were nearly black) the casserole was still very soggy in the middle. (My oven temp. is accurate too.) I think the recipe has potential. Maybe use half of the milk. I tried turning the oven down and letting it cook for 2 hours, so I do think it is a problem with the 4 cups of milk. Still, I'm not daring enough to try it again. What a waste.

This was excellent! I served this on Christmas morning and everyone loved it. I used bacon and honey ham instead of bacon and sausage. I also used 8 oz. of extra sharp cheddar instead of american cheese. This one's a keeper!
