It’s always nice to have a good recipe for a quick and easy brunch dish, especially since there are holidays all through the year that necessitate house guests and meals that are a little bit more special than the norm. This Confetti Brunch Bake is quick, easy, and delicious. It can be made a day or two ahead and reheated, and is good with any number of breakfast breads, either freshly baked or store-bought.
To save even more time and eliminate chopping, you can substitute 1/2 cup dehydrated onion flakes and 1/2 cup dehydrated red and green peppers. Also, if there is no blender available, the egg and flour mixture can be whisked together rather than blended; this does take a little more time, though, but the end result is the same. Crisp cooked bacon can be substituted for ham, as well as cooked, well-drained sausage, or it can be left out altogether for a vegetarian version.
Since this dish is so quick and easy to put together, it will become an oft-requested favorite. It’s nice for a family breakfast or brunch, but also fancy enough for company. Confetti Brunch Bake can be served hot, cold, or at room temperature. Make sure it’s paired with freshly baked breakfast breads or fresh bakery breads. Fried potatoes or hash browns are great too, as well as fresh fruit.
