I did everything by the directions, but I added red and green pepper. It turned out wonderful!! Everybody loved it! I will definately make it again next year for Christmas breakfast!!
Good and I love that it can be made ahead, but I found this a bit dry which suprised me with 10 eggs and 3 cups of half and half. I used a day-old one-pound round loaf of sourdough which may have been the reason. I think more green onion and either chopped sun-dred tomato or red pepper for color would be a nice addition. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
