You could definitely switch up the meat or cheese in this casserole to make it to your liking. Try ham and swiss or bacon and colby jack. It’s going to be good!

If you want to add a health factor, add in spinach, onions, fresh pepper slices, or even some different flavors of cooked sausage, too. This egg mixture is really versatile.

    Can you use a aluminium disposal pan? And how much does this feed?

    I”m sorry, but it was not good at all. None of my guests would eat it. I had to throw it away. I did substitute hash browns for the potatoes.

  3. Can I use a disposable tin casserole pan for the casserole?

  4. BethMoore says:

    Did anyone have the issue of the milk and egg mixture seeping to/under the crescent roll dough? Half of my dough was able to get properly cooked, but the other half just looks & feels like a squishy nasty mess : ( I tried sealing the sides in a bit but I guess I didn’t realize how much I should have tried.

    My husband made this for Christmas morning and we both love it. We enjoyed it so much that he is going to make it again for New Years morning but we are going to try it with ham and garlic and onion powder. I can’t wait!!

    1. Kasey Schwartz says:

      Wonderful!! I am so happy to hear that!

    2. April L. Danford says:

      Will you make a vegan version with Just egg, vegan sausage (should it be patties or links), unsweetened almond milk, plant-based cheese ?

  6. Do you thaw the hash browns?

    1. No – they go in frozen.

  7. Oh 5 stars! Great recipe!

  8. 5 stars
    Substituted sausage for cooked bacon and added garlic & onion powder, salt and pepper.
    It was good but next time I am going to try it with goetta.

      1. Do you cook the sausage before adding it to the dish?

      2. Beth Moore says:

        Sausage should be cooked before adding to the dish!

      3. I’m baking this dish right now. I love your ideas and recipes but really would have liked the measurements included in the recipe. i.e how many ounces of hash browns, how much milk etc. We will see in a few minutes

      4. Just found the measurements in the recipe! My mistake. Thank you
