"This savory, flavorful dish can be made the day before, refrigerated overnight and baked the next day. The recipe makes one nine-inch pie but ingredients can easily be doubled to make two pies. Serve the breakfast pie with a mixed green or fruit salad, add a glass of bubbly Prosecco or a Mimosa and enjoy your holiday brunch." - Sue Ready
