WOW! that's all I can say. I made this for Easter brunch and it was a hit! The flavors are so good. I used sharp cheddar cheese to give it more flavor. This was so good with the leftover chunks of ham in it from the night before. Thanks for posting
This dish is a wonderful way to have a relaxing brunch for friends or family. I Left off the mushrooms and cooked some breakfast sausage. Next time, I think I will add some onions to the sausage as well as some green chili. This was served with grits and fresh fruit.
I made half the recipe for us in a 9x9 pan and used some Hawaiian bread. I omitted the mushrooms due to family preference. This is definitely a family favorite. I might even try some bacon in it next time, too. Thanks for the yummy recipe!!
