      This is a great breakfast dish that I served for a brunch along with some Mimosas. Had the next door neighbors over and we all inhaled it. Great dish, Peggy Lynn. I recommend this to everyone, you won't be sorry.

      This a wonderful recipe!! I had to halve it for the two of us, and it tasted as wonderful as it looked!! I baked it at 400 for about 15 minutes, then took it down to 375 for a TOTAL baking time of 30 minutes. Next time I think I'll bake it at 375 and bake for 35 minutes. But it was VERY VERY GOOD!!!!!!! TY Peggy! :)
