You probably could do two. I imagine 6 servings out of each pan. A lot depends on what else you are serving and who you are feeding.

I would think 1-2 eggs per person, so I'd probably triple the recipe. I always prefer to have too much food rather than not enough.

I would make three of them for 12 people. To me there's nothing worse than not having any leftovers after I've fed a group of people. To me it means there was just barely enough.

We had two friends for brunch recently with a casserole like that, and the four of us had nice large portions with enough left for breakfast the next day for the two of us.

Two of the casseroles would probably be just enough, but I'd do three to be safe..

Twelve men? three is a must legend!! Cut up a couple of melons the night before and you'll be all set.

Well, the author uses a 9 x 13 casserole, and that should be big enough tfor 6 "regular" eaters, if you're not serving anything else. By regular eaters, I mean no teen age boys, or football players. (You know, bottomless pits! )

This sounds like a really versatile dish, one where you can use whatever you like in terms of bread, meat, and other flavors, so it needs never be the same twice (or ... the same company won't recognize it the next time you make it.) I LOVE this kind of dish!

I think I'd make two 9 x 13 casseroles full. Sounds like one wouldn't object to having leftovers for supper or breakfast the next morning.

Or, you could make one 9 x 13 and one 8 x 8. That would probably be exactly 12 portions.
