Expert Tips

  • "I served this at brunch the day after my daughter Amy's wedding, and it was a real hit! It was convenient for me because the assembly is done the day before; all I had to do the day of serving was bake it."
  • Green leafy vegetables such as spinach are a good source of vitamin K, essential for normal blood clotting. If taking a blood thinner such as Coumadin®, however, avoid excessive intake of dietary vitamin K because it may interfere with the medication.
  • High in calcium, folic acid and vitamins A and C
