I saw this recipe and then went to find the zesty onion relish. This would make a wonderful Father's Day Brunch dish. The addition of the zesty onion relish made it so tasty. Dan did suggest that maybe the bread should be toasted before it is added to the baking dish. So, the next time I will try that. I did saute the peppers and added thinly sliced red onion.
