This is really a fantastic recipe. But why make it in a pie pan when you can use a spring form pan and have a really beautiful presentation. I made it ahead and froze it as others have done but when I served it I added a green Chile Hollandaise sauce over the top. It really blew every one away.
I prepared this for my son's birthday breakfast before a day of 4-wheeling. Wish I had read the reviews ahead. Recipe sounded wonderful and it looked beautiful, but, very bland. Living in a casino town, I have many weekend guests and love good brunch ideas. Maybe some roasted green chiles or Bird's Eye southwestern veggies.
This was delicious! I made it ahead of time & froze. The night before serving, I removed from freezer & placed in fridge. In the morning I baked it as directed--wonderful! This is my family's new favorite for special mornings!
This recipe sounds so time-consuming...but it really isn't.Its a great one for camping! I made ahead, froze, then thawed overnight for baking at the campsite. My guys loved it! Since their tastes lean to more savory, I mixed cheddar and jalopena pepper jack cheeses. Used twice the egg called for and half the potatoes. Also added chopped cooked country sausage links. Yummy! Even the other campers came by to see what smelled so good. Had to sit down and write out recipe five times!!!! This is a definite keeper.
I serve this for Christmas brunch. I double the recipe; one pie I make according to the recipe and the other I substitute baby shrimp for the ham. Everyone loves it.
Amazingly delicious! This is so beautiful... people are always impressed when I make this (I double it & use a 9x13 rectangular pan). I've made all the layers the night before, assembled them & covered it with plastic til the morning & just added the egg wash. DEEEEELICIOUS!
Happy Monday gang! Between cars and computers, I honestly don't know which is the biggest pain. It took me fifteen minutes to get on this site yesterday, as our computer is having major issues. (we just ordered a new one) Once I finally got to this recipe, I read it once and got bumped off again. I decided to wing it anyway. Well, I'm certainly glad I did because this was really delicious! To save on time, I placed my whole potatoes in the microwave and then fried them with the onion in the skillet. I also used breakfast sausage patties, which I cut into small pieces, instead of ham. The kids loved the puffed pastry part of this meal. I'll definitely be making this again Michele!
This recipe is AWESOME!! I made it for Easter brunch and took others advice and did it before hand and froze it. I took it out the day before and thawed it in the fridge. Despite my initial worries that this recipe looked a bit complicated, it wasn't at all. Every step went as smooth as could be. My guests loved it, this ones a keeper!!
