  1. This is just an awesome recipe. I made 2 days ahead and it was fine. Couple of tips....recipe calls for 16 oz of swiss. I used 6 oz and it was plenty. Also double the bread as suggested by others. I covered with foil while baking. Finally next time I make I will definitely cut - Read more ...
  2. Awesome! I have never had to pass out so many recipies. I added two cups of bread cubes for the same reason some have stated before and I added my secret scrambled egg ingredient...two tablespoons of whatever mustard you like. It doesn't taste mustardy at all but give the eggs such a depth of flavor! - Read more ...

  4. we are very disappointed with this recipe. i wanted to use up some swiss cheese i had on hand and thought this would be a nice change for a dinner. first it took much much longer to prepare than stated and i even had my husband helping me. second it called for too much cheese. - Read more ...

  8. Served this at a ladies' brunch and it received rave reviews!
  9. This was the best! I used 2 cups of bread cubes - 1 did not seem enough. I also used phony bacon and half the cheese. Everyone loved it for brunch. This is a easy one and a keeper!!
  10. Very tasty. Takes longer to prepare than indicated in the recipe though. For instance I grated the cheese instead of buying it pre-grated. Also I don't have a pan that can cook a pound of bacon all at once so cooking it in batches makes for a longer preparation time.
