The thing about brunches is that you’re wide open to serving just about anything – from main dish to side dish to breakfast dish to dessert. That’s what makes them fun.

    Looks good. Any ideas on making it without the sour cream? I can sub almond cheese.

    Coconut milk yogurt maybe?

    That reminds me of the veg-all casserole that I’ve seen at church pot-lucks. Your version is probably so much healthier and better-tasting.

    Could you use this with frozen vegetables or would it defrost while cooking and hurt it?

    I would imagine frozen veggies should work just fine!

    This looks good! I have someone in the house who doesn’t like vegetables very much so maybe this will win him over

    Hi ~ i have been researching the paleo diet. I’ve listened to some video blogs which I learned from and signed up to receive info from.

    The thing is I’m feeling very spammed by one blogger so I was wondering if you could tell me if you have heard of these guys and if you read their blog? Thank you! Its Joel and josh? :). I love your blog.

    Merry christmas

    I don’t care for the taste of mayonnaise. Can you taste it in this or is it hidden?

    I was wondering about the mayonnaise also. We just plain don’t eat it at our house. Any ideas for substitutes?

    In my version I saute the onions first so they have begun to caramelize (for a deeper flavor), add some cooked rice or macaroni, add some cooked chicken or a can of tuna, and top with some homemade seasoned breadcrumbs or croutons. Make my own mayonnaise and use kefir cream instead of commercial sour cream. A meal in itself! YUM!

    Also would be fantastic to shred veggies & mix with cheese, flour & eggs and make into pancakes! Serve w/ applesauce, sour cream or ketchup.

    My mother in law makes something similar to this topped with ritz crackers. I have been trying to find a healthier version. I think this will do nicely. Thank you!

    Yeah, this wouldn’t work for me, but only because I am the picky one…can’t have my veggies mixed together:) I am sure it is great, and I agree with some posters, chicken would probably work great added in.

    I just made this, and it tastes great! I left the mayo out completely and only had 1 cup of cheese on hand — it still turned out rich and creamy and delicious! I highly recommend this recipe for those who don’t enjoy veggies that much. .. it definitely makes them yummy!
