I've made this brunch bake for holidays, as well as for a weekend at a friend's cabin, and I always get requests for the recipe. It's make-ahead convenient, reheats well and even tastes great the next day. —Becky Hicks, Forest Lake, Minnesota

I used box turkey stuffing instead of sourdough beard, and it turned out awesome! I suggest this recipe to anyone who loves a good breakfast!

I already have a few tried & true egg & sausage bake recipes, but I wanted to try something different for Christmas breakfast. The Brie and sweet red peppers variation intrigued me, but I wasn't sure how well the change would go over with the rest of the family. However I needn't have worried, it was a hit and will be added into the rotation of tried and true recipes.

So tasty! I made this for Christmas brunch and will make it again for next Christmas brunch too!

This recipe was very rich and very good. I did make a few changes: German beer sausage instead of Italian; half and half instead of heavy cream; French bread instead of sourdough; and goat cheese gouda instead of brie (didn't have any). I also halved the recipe, didn't soak it overnight, and used chopped leeks on top instead of green onions that also baked with the rest of the dish. I used tri-colored peppers and horseradish mustard, so I think this dish could have many variations and still be delicious!

I always make an egg bake for Christmas Day morning, for a family which includes those that a. hate mushrooms, b. can't take any "heat", so I've been searching for years for an egg bake worth making again. This is it! I used Jimmy Dean Maple Sausage in place of the spicy sausage, and used about half of the sweet peppers, otherwise per recipe, and it was a hit all around. My husband and I just finished the last of it for lunch today (Jan 2) and it's just as good reheated. It's going in the Christmas recipe file, for sure. BTW, had to buy a 2-lb round of Brie, so wrapped the rest in crescent roll dough and baked it for New Years Eve - wow!
