This is a great dish to serve for brunch or even for a comforting dinner. Do plan ahead though, because this dish does have to be refrigerated over night. NOTE: Prep time does not include over night refrigeration or 30 minute rest time prior to baking.

I made this using veggie sausage patties, which I crumbled up. I scaled the recipe back to use 2 eggs and it was so yummy for breakfast this morning. I also served some to a friend who came by and he loved it too! I did use whole grain bread. Next time I will use egg beaters and see how that goes. Thanks for a great morning recipe!
