My family asked for 3rd helpings... the ultimate compliment!
I love how you can make it a day before! We made this numerous times already Sunday mornings. We do have to bake a little longer that stated. Pour some maple syrup on top before eating, it is awesome!
I always make this for Christmas morning. It' s so easy to pop in while enjoying family time. I use turkey sausage to lighten it up a bit.
I made this for Easter brunch and everyone loved it. So easy to make and delicious too!
cut the recipe by 1/3, added a cup of leftover brown rice to reduce bread, used 4 slices of sprouted grain bread and a pkg of bacon bits and 1# bulk turkey sausage to reduce the fat. Next time I'll add mushrooms.
I layered ingredients in a 9x13 pan--sausage on bottom,then bread, then egg mixture, then cheese, then bacon on top along with a sprinkling of some dried herbs. Very pretty! It was a big hit at our church brunch.
This recipe was so good. My whole family of picky eaters loved it.
I have also found that it needs to bake longer than an hour. I use day old french bread. I make this frequently and always get rave reviews.
This recipe is hearty and delicious, and I love that it is prepared ahead of time! I make this for a tasty Sunday morning surprise for my family if I have to work, they just take it out and heat it up!
We substituted veggies for the bacon to cut down on cost and fat.
