Although this is a pretty bad picture (I had to snap fast as the guests were hungry!) you can see the yummy cheesy, meaty goodness that is baked in this casserole. It is very versatile and you can sub any type of meat/cheese combination you like. It lends to a lot of flexibility and is so easy. This was definitely the favorite of the baptism brunch egg dishes.
