The picture shows Red Pepper (or pimento?) in the mix which is not stated in the recipe at all. Any guesses?

Made this Thanksgiving for the family breakfast. Easy, yummy, and filling! For Christmas morning, I will be using cooked sausage in place of the ham.

Made this dish last weekend and received rave reviews. It's so simple too. I threw in sauteed leeks instead of the onions and added some specialty mustard in addition to the ground mustard. My guests thought the bread circles were biscuits because they puffed up so nicely. It's a keeper in my recipe file. Try it too.
