Smarts: We couldn't resist adding the option to top the egg bake with frozen tater tots. It's a fun addition, but feel free to skip it if you prefer.

I put onions, mushrooms and zucchini in my egg bake. It was so yummy! The pancakes were fluffy and delicious, added a little vanilla.

I thought this was 5 stars but most of the kids weren’t a fan of the frittata. I didn’t expect them to be though. My 5 year old said the pancakes were like plain ones but way better. It made a ton of pancakes so if you have a smaller family you could cut the pancake recipe in half or just know you have some to freeze for later. I put a few of the tater tots on top as suggested and it was really good!

Family loved it! Served with fruit and without pancakes. Sautéed a leek first then added ham with thyme. Used a 12” skillet and seemed like not enough food so added more egg. Scattered hash brown shreds on top. Served with tomatoes on top- Nice easy meal.

Quick and easy to put together and get on the table. The most perfect pancakes I have ever made. They spread and cooked perfectly. We really liked the bake as well. Next time I may add some green chile to the mixture.

I made this for an early Father's Day brunch and it was well received! He doesn't care for quiche but he happily gobbled this egg bake up. I added pureed banana and cinnamon to the pancakes but that's just what the kiddos prefer. Definitely will make this again.

We loved this. My 3-year-old enjoyed helping to make the pancakes, and she even ate two of them! I agree with other reviewers about using a 10" skillet instead. I'd also chop the spinach next time. I wasn't sure about the tater tots, but I'm glad I added them -- they gave the dish a really nice flavor. The ham, egg, and spinach bake was excellent the next day, too. I'm eating it for lunch right now. :-) I will definitely be making this one part of our regular lineup.

Really good, adding to favorites! Next time I'd use my 10" skillet instead - 12" was too big. I'd also cut up the spinach first. Plus add mushrooms because yum. Pancakes were so good!
