Cheesy Egg Casserole

This dish is perfect for potlucks because it looks so pretty on the table and, best of all, it can be made ahead of time. Although I don't live in the country, my family and I love the country flavor of this hearty egg and cheese casserole. —Dawn Reeve, Salt Lake City, Utah

    This is definitely cheesy! Next time I might try sausage in place of the bacon. I'm sure you could add just about any of your favorite breakfast add-ins.
