    Delicious! Four of us ate almost the entire thing, it was that good. The spices tasted great.

    I am a very inexperienced cook and am still developing my culinary skills. This recipe, though, made me feel like a chef! It was so easy to follow and came out truly delicious. For the most part, I followed the recipe exactly (I added mushrooms, didn't measure veggies, added a bit more herbs). Everyone loved it and I had zero leftovers. A little time consuming but not difficult. Overall - YUM!

    This was a big hit at my brunch and was very simple to make. I liked being able to do most of the work the night before. Also, it was very light and the flavors were delicious. I didn't have any leftovers so I will be making it again soon so I can have more!

    Just made this recipe yesterday; it went over very well. Instead of keeping the egg mixture and bread mixture separate, I combined them and put them in the refrigerator overnight. I let it stand for 30 minutes before putting it in the oven. I also added 16 oz of pork sausage. Will definitely use this recipe again.

    Tasted too much like bread, nothing special to make it delicious. Needed tons of salt to have any flavor.

    Like one of the other reviewers, I added mushrooms to the veggie mix. Also used roasted garlic infused bread. Followed the rest of the recipe and it was a big hit with the book club. Also warms up nicely for leftovers.

    This is definitely company worthy. Season well and be careful not to over cook it and the result will be creamy, tasty and pretty. I also added lightly sautéed mushrooms for an extra touch but you don't need it.

    I made this on Saturday for a small brunch with my husband and mother in law, but it would serve a crowd. I followed the directions, with a few exceptions: I didn't have egg substitute, so I used enough egg whites to fill a cup (4 or 5 I believe). The ciabatta bread works really well, but any loaf that's not too dense would be just as good. Rapidly whisking aerates the egg/milk mixture and makes a light, fluffy casserole. I'm always looking for overnight brunch foods- makes prep in the morning that much easier. I served this with turkey bacon and a spinach strawberry salad. Reheats well. This could be served for a special occasion.

    Made this for Christmas brunch - easy and great flavor, but mine seemed to have a bit too much liquid and didn't completely set up. Will try it with about 1/2 cup less milk next time.
