      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!

      Thanks, Dancer, for another GREAT recipe! This is a perfect do-ahead dish for breakfast or brunch - we just had it for Christmas morning breakfast and served it with candied bacon and Danish Aebelskivers. I added some freshly ground pepper to the egg mixture since I like things a bit savory. Some cayenne pepper would be a nice addition, too, and my kids actually suggested adding fresh mushrooms. I agree with Ginny, this recipe will adapat to whatever you want to include!

      Yep, this is indeed a versatile recipe. I used Orowheat Buttermilk bread with the crusts cut off, Fontina cheese, and added some pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. Oh, and I steamed the asparagus to crisp-tender before adding it. It was a delicious part of our Mother's Day brunch, and I love things that are already made that you can just pop in the oven while the company is there. I will use this as a base recipe and experiment with different vegetables, cheeses and seasonings. Thanks!
