My son made this for sunday dinner and I must say I was very impressed. I made it where it did not contain dairy or gluten and he made it normal for the rest of the family and we put sour cream in it and it was the most fabulous casserole I have ever eaten. I will be making my dairy/gluten free one again. (P.S. I used dairy free sour cream instead of the milk. It still turned out great!)

I made this casserole just as directed for my knitting guild brunch. There was only one teeny little piece left and I was asked for the recipe. Magnificent!

reduce the onion to 1/4 c and add 1/2 c of maple syrup to make it "kid friendly!"

One of my go-to recipes for potlucks or family gatherings. Add a can of diced green chilies and serve with salsa. Change up meat with browned and drained sausage or chorizo. Great for the gluten intolerant. I've even made this for my grandson who has gluten, dairy, and egg issues with egg substitute, unflavored almond milk, and vegan cheese substitute. He gets his own individual casserole!

We make a similar recipe that we got at a wonderful Bed and Breakfast. However, we mix a little vegetable oil in with the 3 cups of hash browns, press them into a 10" pie plate, and bake them until they are lightly browned (425 for about 15 minutes. Then we add about a cup of mild cheddar cheese and about a cup or little more of cooked, crumbled sausage. (We mix half breakfast sausage and half chirizo -- delicious!) We also use minced green onions or sweet onions that have been cooked a little. We also add chopped Roma tomatoes and sometime finely chopped red and yellow peppers, asparagus, etc. We use 3 eggs per pie. Bake it all at 350 for about 35 minutes or till set.

Personally, we make something very similar to this but we brown the hash browns first, also add bacon bits AND sausage crumbles and about twice the amount of cheese.....it is SERIOUSLY yummy!! Oh and I make home made English Muffins to go with it!! I guess all the meat is a Southern Thing!! In SC we do love our meats!!
