I am always on the look out for different egg bake recipe’s. Joyce Jorgenson served this dish at a brunch at her home and shared the recipe with me. Its nice to have one that doesn’t call for bread and if you used a different kind of flour other than wheat it would be glutton free. It was fast to put together, I made it for our Easter breakfast at church, I hope that you enjoy it too!
