  • Love breakfast casserole dish. Vanessa knows how to cook and any woman knows the way to man heart is his stomach. Vanessa knows how to cook unlike his ex who just shops

  • This looks good!  My favorite things to eat during the holidays are the side dishes.  I always bring green bean casserole, my aunt usually makes this awesome corn pudding, and of course mashed potatoes and gravy!:-)

  • That other chick was letting them know she is down for a 3way. Everytime I see his wife I feel so bad that she is his second choice because of Jessica. But then again she has always rubbed me the wrong way. He is always trying to stay relevant since Jess is such a boss. I bet it eats at him and it should!

  • I cant wait to try this out this weekend. Thank u Vanessa!!! Please share more easy recipes!
    I’m a mom of two active boys and a husband who loves to eat. I totally understand you

  • Frozen hash browns?, how inept this lazy woman is, she doesn’t know how to cut and cook a potato? And she feeds this to her children.

  • Hi Liz. This casserole looks good. We/I do one that I think everyone does, sausage and egg casserole w/a big fresh fruit salad all the nite or 2 before so we can all sleep a little longer ��. Hope you and your fam have a very blessed Christmas and holiday season❣️❣️ Robin

  • Geeeeeze….quit talking and start cooking….I hate that…you get a bunch of overkill people together and it’s about them and not the dish….

  • Okay, made it. The best of all your recipes. I centered it and added a rim of blueberries and raspberries, with a drizzle of maple syrup. Paired it with your agua de melon. Amazingly delicious. Everyone need to try it.

  • I would totally try this, but made with real beef since I can’t have soy. Actually, I’d also skip the sour cream and the avocado, too. I never was a fan of either. >.

  • I’m super happy that you are using vegan replacements but the only thing is your doing because you got so many dislikes on the chicken waffle recipe, plus this time you aren’t as fake with your personality! I really hope you consider making the full meal vegan with vegan cheese and egg replacements, it’s much healthy! But one step at a time ayy? I hope you make more videos of these in the future! xo

  • Hi, this is sort of a weird question (and it doesn’t really have anything to do with the video) but I couldn’t think of any other YouTubers atm that would actually answer me. I got my period about 8 months ago and I started to notice that only half of my tampon is covered in blood. Is this normal? Hahah sorry for weird question, I love you ingrid

  • I do a very similar egg casserole, I use bread at the bottom, but hashbrows sounds better. I refuse to go back to any store. I’ll def try this for a breakfast for dinner one night

  • What an annoying group of pretentiousness asses. Like…using a fork to beat eggs…OMG! �� Just get to making it, the ‘banter’ is so forced and unfunny but they act like everything is the funniest thing they ever saw/heard. ��

  • My fave holiday snack is definitely lefse. We go all out with the Scandinavian food during Christmastime, and nothing beats some lefse rolled up with butter, sugar, and cinnamon.

  • Yumm! So exciting its your first Christmas as a new mom. This will be my first Christmas in my first house and I think I will make this for us for Breakfast before the craziness starts:) Thanks for the recipe!

  • Funny, I actually made this today. I had cookies on Christmas morning. I will say, it’s absolutely delicious. My taste buds were in heaven.

  • I love that apron girl!!!! Bacon, yes. So happy you said that, I’m not a sausage girl. Looks yummy and I can’t wait to make it (using bacon, of course!!).

  • Can I just say that my favourite snack is kale chips! omg I’m so late on this but I just discovered them and it is soooo easy to make it by yourself just 5 minutes and they are ready! Big plus it’s a healthy alternative to normal potato chips

  • Omg!!!! I’m soooo excited!!! I just prepped this to pop in the oven for Christmas morning!! Eeeeekkkk!!! I can’t wait!!! The topping is soooo yummy!!!

  • I honestly don’t know why she’s losing subs. This kind of content (which I find amusing) almost never makes several thousands of people want to unsubscribe (unless they like her older content idfk)

  • Hello and happy holidays! Im taking your advice and making this for my family for breakfast �� Thank you and wish me luck ☺️������������✌��

  • Hello hello Ingrid!!! Merry Merry Christmas!!!! ��❄️��☃️this recipe is so cool! I will try it tomorrow! Lol
    And ya, one of my favourite meal snack or it can be even a full meal as well. These are Russian -style pancakes with condensed milk inside ))) happy holidays!!!!

  • I’m making this for Christmas morning. I’m sure my family will love this, thank you!!!
    And the best part is that this just goes in the oven. All preparations have been done the day before. ❤

  • U are constantly killing this food game!! May I please come to ur spot and eat lol! Cream cheese with French toast in a casserole??��. Yummy!!

  • You are adorable ❤️ I’m in my mid 50’s and I check you tube every day to see what you have posted. I remember every Christmas morning with my children. My third born was born on Christmas Day so it is a very special time in our family. Enjoy every minute of it ����

  • nothing wrong with using a fork to scramble eggs ya buncha catty bitches. some of us can cook better than you ever will cuz you’re too busy being snobby about it.

  • Because I love. Scrambled eggs so much, I`d have to scramble a few more to pour over the mixture. Toast with real grape jelly and a cold glass of milk finishes it off for me!

  • My favorite holiday meal is definitley my mom’s pierogis! Even though christmas is over, I’ll probably be trying this recipe for myself!!!

  • wow, this looks yummy….i soo miss holiday treats back home, we have this mango float dessert thats made of cream, lady’s fingers, graham crackers and ofcourse, choice mangoes! yummy favorite.

  • I tried to make this over weekend it look just like yours before it went in oven but after cooking for 50 mins it didnt look at like yours:( it was more like a pudding not sure if it had any thing to do with me using my fresh chickene eggs? Smelled amazing so sad

  • Liz I love this and it looks delicious, I will totally make that for Christmas morning because I spend all morning opening presents with my kids than getting them ready to go see grandparents and I do not want to spend too long cooking breakfast!! Love your cooking videos ��

  • I know it’s not totally “Holiday”, but my Gram always used to make good old chex mix, and now it’s one of my favorite holiday snacks! thanks for the recipe!

  • Just bought all the ingredients for this recipe. I’m so excited to see how this turns out for Christmas morning! Thanks Liz for the idea ��

    Merry Christmas �� ��

  • this is my first christmas as a mom. i can not wait to open up gifts with my baby girl. its going be amazing!!!!!!! happy holidays to you and yours

  • Great idea for a special breakfast ��. I changed the bacon for pecans and reduced the cream cheese by whipping it with 1tb of milk, butter and sugar. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • I so agree with the excessive touching comment. I really cannot with her. She was lucky that she didn’t get a casserole “accidentally” dropped on her thirsty feet. I know Nick and Vanessa had a conversation about that. Some women (and men) are so full of themselves that they think they are irresistible to the opposite sex. I think she makes Cameron uncomfortable as well.

  • I make a few breakfast casseroles, but this is different from what I make. I will try it, it looked yummy. For Christmas morning I make cinnamon rolls.

  • favorite holiday meal: anything packed with veggies and mushrooms. My family go to Rosemead for the Chinese vegetarian restaurant out there. As a vegan, I enjoy and appreciate any food made with compassion.

  • Omgoodness, with the evaporated milk! Yum we usually are just snacking on leftovers from Christmas Eve but might give this a go! Merry Christmas❤⛄

  • This looks absolutely delicious! I’m going to make this Christmas eve night and to mine I’m going to add onions and peppers. Thanks for the inspo! ❤️❤️ Merry Christmas to you and your family!
