What is there not to love and adore about this dish? So yummy and tasty it actually got my dog, a mastiff to stand right up and "wolf". The aroma whilst baking, especially the dressing, poured over the tomatoes, the chives, the bread, the eggs. I didn't have cream, so I made a concoction up of skim milk, light sour cream, and 1% cottage cheese (blended in blender) then added to the top. Fresh chives donned the top and I had some very thin sliced Smithfield ham that was used. Very yummy :) and will make again and soon too! Made for Everyday is a Holiday May 2009
Very good, versatile recipe! Was a tad concerned about the vinegar, but put it in and it was fine! (You never know unless you try.) I pre-cooked pepper bacon and cut the bread into cubes so it would be easier to get out of the casserole as I was making a half batch inside a greased 1 quart casserole dish-a pretty small dish. Baked for 25 minutes. Thanks for a wonderful lunch, kittycatmom! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders!
