This dish is great for breakfast or brunch because it can be made the night before and baked just before you plan to serve it.

5 stars for sure. I used jalapeno peppers (3) finely chopped without seeds, Canadian peameal bacon, (precooked and chopped) and 1 1/2 Tbls. Italian seasoning instead of the dill. Everyone loved it and asked for seconds. Prep time is well worth it! Absolutely delicious.
