  1. My husband and I have enjoyed eating this eat dish. I thought it was done after 30 minutes but I didn’t check the middle. Next time I will add another five minutes. Also, we could taste the flour. Is there a way to remedy that?

    1. Hi! It sounds like the flour might not have whisked in well. Just make sure it’s whisked in really well so it’s incorporated with the eggs. Hope this helps and that y’all get to enjoy it again soon!

  2. I have made this and it’s a wonderful recipe. I have to cook for a gluten free guest – have you ever made this gluten free? Could I use tapioca flour or cornstarch as a replacement?

    1. Hi, Connie! I haven’t made it gluten free before, but I imagine that one of those gluten-free flour substitutes would work nicely. I don’t think I’d try it with cornstarch, though. You’ll have to let me know how it turns out! ❤️

    1. Hi Rachel! You could leave the sausage out or substitute with chopped bacon, ground chicken, ground turkey, ground beef, etc. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  3. hi, I love your breakfast casserole! Instead of cottage cheese I used 1cup of ranch dressing & 1cup of sour cream & Ipk of kraft deluxe american cheese minus 2pcs. I use 1/2tsp accent & 1/2 tsp table salt, I had to bake it for 45min. on 350 It was so good!😊 thank you.

  4. This recipe has become a staple of my family Christmas breakfast or brunch. The leftovers make a great lunch.
