This is an easy make ahead dish. Make the night before and bake in the morning.... or make in the morning for dinner! *** You can add cubed ham, cooked sausage, cooked potatoes (cubed), chopped red and green bell pepper (diced), onion (diced)... add whatever you like.... We like to add saute'd yellow and green zucchini... We double the recipe and use larger pan as needed.
