Share it:

Prepare this delicious dish the night before your brunch. Allow it to sit overnight, and pop it into the oven 45 minutes before your guests are set to arrive.

"Delicious, quick and easy. I used Jimmy dean turkey bits. They're Pre-cooked, so you can skip the first step all together. I would definitely add other spices next time to give it a little more flavor; like possibly some Italian seasonings. Plus I made it the day of and didn't let it sit-it was just as good. "

great but I made changes. I added crimini mushrooms and dived onions to the mix. cooking time was way off. I cooked it for an hour but it was still raw. Because I had company waiting to eat I microwaved it for 5 min and that made it perfect.

We do this about once a month, decadent Sunday brunch, we use real eggs, real half and half and serve with sourdough toast with real butter.
