I followed the other suggestions and put the hash browns in first instead of mixing it. I followed another reviewer's advice and put the hash browns in first and I think that worked well. Certainly the best breakfast casserole I've ever tasted and if the reviews from work were accurate, a sure crowd-pleaser. I pre-cooked my hash browns and bacon (but not too cripy), placed the hash browns on the bottom of the casserole dish, layered bacon on top. I think it would have been better if the hash browns were browned and seasoned before putting into the casserole.
