      teaches12345 - you have been such an awesome supporter during my 30/30 challenge. I know it is not easy to keep up with this kind of reading, so I want you to know that I so appreciate it. I hope you and your family or guests enjoy this casserole.

      BrokenDreamer - I crunchy top could be interesting. Maybe even crush the crackers and mix with the cheese. What do you think of that idea?

      Deborah Brooks - You may have commented, I am running a little behind. But the challenge is over so now it is time to play catch-up. It really is too bad that we are losing our bookmarks.

      sholland10 - I hope you enjoy it and stop by and let me know.

      Sunshine625 - I do like the one dish meals also. So glad you enjoyed the hub.

      alocsin - I made it with sausage this time, but I think next time I am going to add a little bacon to it for added flavor as well.

      DonnaCosmato - I too love the one dish meals, and you are right, less dishes! That is always good. Hope your crew likes it.

      Thanks to all of you for stopping by and sharing your comments.

      I was thinking it looked great, but have you tried a crunchy crust on top? Maybe some saltines or other cracker put on about ten minutes before removing from the oven? Just a thought...

      Trying to catch up with my comments! They seem to have gotten away from me!

      Cosmic Bus - you are welcome.

      duffsmom - hope you like it and return to let me know.

      Just Ask Susan - I hope you enjoy it!It is really so easy!

      AudreyHowitt - This would absolutely be great with veggies. I especially like asparagus in this type of dish. But broccoli would be good with some crushed red chili pepper for a little kick would be good as well.

      Marcy - Here's wishing you many enjoyable breakfasts in the future.

      Rolly - I'll be emailing you a piece of this anytime now. I hope you e-enjoy it. Fresh barbecued salmon sounds pretty scrumptious to me!
