Great for brunch and special occasions. This recipe can be made ahead and refrigerated up to 12 hours before baking. Try omitting the mushrooms and tomatoes and adding fresh spinach and canned artichokes and 1/2 cup Swiss cheese for a different flavor.

Great breakfast choice during busy holiday's or for sleepovers. Since I can get the kids to eat it, I don't typically add any of the vegetables. I'm sure they'd be good with it as well. Even made it over vacation with another family, It was my day to make breakfast, it fed all 10 of us. Yum!
