Tips on garlic powder:  Garlic powder will get hard and the granules will cake or stick together if exposed to moisture.  Always store in a cool, dark place away from stove heat and moisture. It should keep 3 to 4 years if stored properly.

    I made it tonight, but I cut the salt to 1/2 teaspoon and it was still plenty salty. Great dish though! Thanks!

  2. Sarah Ener says:

    I cut the ham in half and we had no onion, so I added a 1/2 tsp of onion powder (leaving out the garlic powder). My very picky son was able to eat a small square. He doesn’t like almost anything, so I’ll take it. I enjoyed it and it was fairly easy to make.5 stars

  3. Are the Tots thawed when placed on top? Thanks!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      No, they are not.

  4. I made it with extra large eggs, mushrooms, peas, and two layers o differant cheese topped of with paperka, my teenage boys were looking for sevonds when there was none lrft5 stars

  5. Do you think It would be ok to whisk in one 10oz can of mushroom soup to the egg mixture?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can try it. I never have made it that way. Hope it works for you.

  6. Loved it! Made it for breakfast today. Great recipe.5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      So glad you enjoyed this casserole! We love it too!

  7. Laura Klipa says:

    The tots float on top of eggs?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, Laura, the directions say to place them on top of the egg mixture. Then you bake it.

  8. I made it for my husband tonight. He loved it! I left out the garlic powder. I did bake it for 15 minutes longer, to make it more crispy. DELICIOUS and EASY!5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Thank you so much Kelly for letting me know you enjoyed this recipe. We love this one too. Have a wonderful week!

  9. Tina Marie says:

    Thank you! Making for dinner tonight!

  10. Tina Marie says:

    I’m wondering if this recipe is for 4 large eggs? I have jumbo eggs, how many should I use? Thanks!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      3 should work for you Tina.

  11. What would be a good side dish to complete this meal for dinner?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I would add something green, Jackie, like brussels sprouts, green beans, asparagus, peas, etc. Just type in the name of the vegetable in our search box and you should get some recipes for those dishes.

  12. Jan McMullen says:

    Is it a 9×9 or a 9×13 pan ?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      The recipe posted is for a 9 x 9 but it says you can double the recipe if you like and use a 9 x 13.

  13. This looks yummy ! can it be made ahead and frozen??
    Thanks

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I have not tried freezing this casserole but would think you could do that Lera.
