I made this for Easter brunch and it was wonderful. Not too rich but still tasted special with the goat cheese. I made it the night before and baked it the day of.
I made this recipe this morning and it is delicious! My 16 month old grand-daughter cleaned her plate!
This was absolutely delicious! I made it exactly according to the recipe although I did use about 25% less bread (following the previous reviewers suggestion) so the veggies were more the central ingredients. It turned out wonderful and is definitely a keeper!
This was yummy, although next time I would at least double, maybe even triple the veggies, or else cut back on the bread and cheese. It was very heavy. Great flavor, though!
