It has all of the right colors for a Christmas brunch, but lacks zip.

This was a huge hit at a recent staff development breakfast. Everyone appreciates a meatless alternative and this one was enjoyed by omnivores and vegetarians alike. It is not vegan though and not sure how to substitute for the eggs, milk and cheese. The English muffin base is a nice change.

I served it for my Christmas brunch and two people asked me for the recipe.
