This is a great breakfast/brunch casserole that is lovely for a Mother's Day brunch, New Year's Day Brunch, or other gathering. Serve with fresh fruit and your favorite beverage. Easily made ahead--just assemble the night before and refrigerate overnight. In the morning just pop into the oven and bake for about 1 hour plus a few minutes more, until hot. From the local paper.
