  1. This recipe of breakfast casserole looks delicious! It is a high energy morning meal to keep you going energetic for the entire day. I just love your instant pot recipes. Thanks!

  2. I really appreciate this recipe, and am looking forward to trying the end result when it comes out of the IP soon. I did do the veggie option, but other than that, I think I followed the recipe carefully. Unfortunately, my new spring form pan leaked a lot of eggs all over the counter. To try to salvage it, I dumped the whole casserole into a glass oven dish and put that in the IP instead. Fingers crossed. Thank you for including a veggie option, and for the 1001 recipes!

  3. I just received a I P as a Birthday present .Most of the recipes are for families. Would it be possible to cut them in half for just me?

    1. Definitely! Most recipes like any stews can be cut in half no problem. This recipe and many of the cake recipes may be harder to cut in half because they need to fit the pan properly. But you can always store leftovers in the refrigerator and reheat it for breakfast tomorrow.
