    We have been making this is my house for years. It always turns out great and it is very easy to add whatever veggies or meats you have on hand and still have a great dish.

    As easy to make as it is to enjoy. If you love cheese as much as I do, don’t be afraid to add some more. The recipe makes more than enough for a small army. I served this dish with grits topped with hot butter. Enjoy!

    I’ve used this recipe for my 6 daughters when they were growing up and for company. Everyone loved this. It’s easy to make the night before. Pop it in the oven the next morning, makes a good hot breakfast. The kids thought it was a souffle. We have even added to the recipe over the years to make it our own.

    We go camping every weekend, and when we have guests come. I make this. Once I pop it in the oven I can enjoy the morning with the others. It’s always a hit.

    This is a wonderful recipe. I make it every year for Christmas Brunch along with Curried Fruit and Monkey Bread. My nieces, nephews and son will not allow me to deviate from this brunch. It’s been 25 years!
