My kids ask 3 months in advance if I am going to make this on Christmas morning. It is so delicious and has become a Christmas tradition for us. I have served this for 4 years now, and my family wouldn't have it any other way. It is so good that my eldest daughter requested it also for her birthday! This recipe is a keeper.

I tried this for Christmas morning. Everyone enjoyed it but I thought I might change it up and see what I could do with it. I know most people may not have it but I substituted deer sausage for the bacon and seasoned stuffing mix for the Italian bread. I also changed from yellow onion to a white. Everyone who ate this one liked it better. Both are simple to fix and great for company.

Used almost 1lb loaf, one extra egg, did ON version, w/2 cups of milk, still perfect, not too cheesy just right! BIG HIT!

This looks and sounds wonderful but it does look like a lot of cheese. Did anyone find it too cheesy? I was afraid it might be too rich tasting and maybe a little greasy.

Making it for Christmas morning. I've had no problems substituting ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese. Not sure about using sour cream instead.
