This is an easy one dish casserole that is great for a breakfast, brunch, holiday or for overnight guests as a special breakfast. I make this Christmas morning before I wake everyone up to open presents and the smell of it cooking makes us hurry to open the presents so we can dig in! Very versitile recipe. I have added various ingredients such as sauteed mushrooms, green chilis, olives, sausage and onions to make a rich omelet-like dish. I sometimes serve with a NW favorite to top...Tiger Sauce. This recipe came from my friend Kyle and was an immediate hit with all.

I made this using half the recipe amounts & cooked it in a 12 count muffin pan. I love the versatility of adding your own extras to make it even better! I serve it with some country gravy & my family eats it up! My kids like the muffin size portions & can add what they want individually.. this is a keeper!

Very tasty. I cut in 1/2 but used 8 eggs-- all the same quantity of other ingredients. Cooked in a square 9 X 9 pan. My husband wanted to know if it should have syrup on it. I suggested queso, which is what we'll do next time.
