Yum! We prepared this for an Easter brunch and it was well-loved and devoured! I fully planned to prepare it the night before as stated, but I was sleepy, so I prepared it early in the morning and it still worked out just great! No other changes made, though I couldn't tell exactly when to put in the flour. I ended up adding it in with the salt & pepper/egg/half & half mixture, and that turned out great! Loved the veggies as well! Thank you for the great recipe! It's exactly what we were looking for!
