This is not a 5 star recipe as written. I made it once as written (omitting tomato) and thought it had potential, so I tried again. I'm closer to having something that makes me go "Sweet, it's broccoli casserole night" instead of "I wish I hadn't bought all that broccoli.." So here is what I did that I will do again: I cooked bacon, removed it, left the drippings in the pan. I cooked fresh broccoli, onions, and a celery stalk in the bacon grease until the onions were browning. I also cooked diced jalapenos in that mixture--I used 3 rings, I'm going to up it to 6 next time and hope for the best. NEXT time I'm going to also add 1/2c. salsa or picante sauce or pico de gallo (whatever I have) into the vegetable mixture that goes on the bottom layer. I also added diced Black Forest ham. In the cheese layer, I won't change a thing except to add a healthy dose of minced garlic, and maybe some Old Bay. Also I will double the black pepper next time. Eggs demand black pepper!
