I made this for a big group Christmas breakfast. It was a fantastic brunch item and people raved about. This is my new favorite breakfast casserole. And yes, it took a lot longer to bake until done, so add at least 20 minutes, especially if you make for a crowd.

This is the second time I have had this one and I love it! My sister made it for me once and she keeps it as a quick breakfast for a whole week. I put green peppers (personal preference) in mine this past week and it was great. I also recommend maple sausage for a little extra sweetness.

This was a hit. Everyone loved the casserole. We even had enough leftover for breakfast the next day. First time making a fruit salad like this and it turned out wonderful.

It did take WAY longer to bake than as written, but in the end it was worth the wait. We love the red peppers
