Top Review by GinnyP

Dancer, what a fantastic recipe! I made this four days ago and have been enjoying it for breakfast ever since! I needed to use my asparagus, zucchini, broccoli, homemade bread, and bacon. I found this recipe and Voila'! I had Montery Jack on hand so I used that, too. I just love recipes that do that--easily let ingredients change based on what's on hand without compromising the recipe. What a delicious budget stretcher!
