  1. Made this for Christmas brunch. It is simple and delicious. The dish was empty with in minutes. I’ll most certainly make again.5 stars

  2. Could this be put together the night before and baked in the morning?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I see no reason why you couldn’t! Thanks!

  3. I wonder if you could make this as muffins?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I would think that would work; you would just need to adjust the baking time. Good luck!

  4. Dana Squires says:

    I made this for breakfast this morning and love it. I do think it will feed a little more than 6. I did take some of the mixture and make quiche out of it. For a fast breakfast this week.5 stars
