  • Double: Easily double this recipe and place in 9×13 pan. Cook an additional 10 min to start, add more time till it has that golden crispy top.
  • Make A Head: You can make this ahead of time but it’s so easy you don’t have to either. If you need to though prepare the night before and before cooking bring the dish to room temperature.
  • Eggs: If you find it has trouble binding together or it’s too crumbly for you, add in 2 large eggs to help it all stay together.
  • Storage: This will keep in an airtight container for up to a week. It reheats perfectly in the microwave. I don’t recommend freezing the leftovers.

    1st time making this was on Thanksgiving…. it was delicious!!! My coworkers said it sounded good, so I just made a batch to bring to work tomorrow…. should I refrigerate it or can it be left at room temperature overnight?

  2. Yummy & easy, but 45 minutes is perfect. Any longer, it’s overbaked & any shorter, it’s undercooked. Cheese can be added on top for last 5 minutes but we don’t add it & it’s perfect!

  3. Shoot! I didn’t buy enough sour cream! Can I substitute cream cheese for some of the sour cream?

      I’ve made this for years and NEVER put any sour cream in it. Otherwise, made right by the recipe. I never have leftovers!

  4. I have a slow cooker recipe that’s nearly identical to a double batch of this recipe – cooking time is about three hours on low – hope that helps anyone needing the oven for other things around the holidays!

  5. I am going to double this recipe and cook it in the oven but in my crock-pot crock. So……it will be in a deep pot Should I cook it longer than specified? Will the center cook?

  6. Ahhhh shoot. I used an oval gratin/casserole instead of an 8×8 and it’s nicely golden brown on top after an hour but still quite jiggly! What is the center supposed to be like? I can always tent it til the consistency is right.
