  1. It was very good. I muted the flavor to suit my husband’s taste: part mozzarella and part taco cheese; dairy case garlic & herb hash browns instead of the southwestern flavor I like, a pound of crumbled bulk sausage fried before adding. My husband had three helpings. The timing was on the mark. Leaving it uncovered gives a nice crust as I sprinkled a bit of the cheese on top also.

  2. Thank you so much for the recipe. It was delicious! My husband loved it. I added some green pepper since we had so many from the garden. Fresh
    Fruit and cranberry orange muffins accompanied. Thanks again!

  3. Unless i missed it, I didn’t see number of servings for the Farmers Casserole. Please advise. i look forward to your response. recipe looks yummy.


    1. Depending on serving size, if you are feeding adults I would say this recipe serves 4-6. You make it in a 9×13 pan, so it depends on how large you want the servings to be.
