Notes

Do ahead: Cook the sausage and bacon ahead of time and then add them to the recipe when you are ready to make it.
MAKE THE NIGHT BEFORE
  1. Mix the eggs and the half-n-half together.
  2. Add the spices and the Worchestershire sauce.
  3. Put the egg mixture into a covered air-tight container in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. Cook, cool, and crumble the bacon and the sausage and store them in a zip-top bag in the refrigerator.
  5. Cut up the fresh chives and dice the bell pepper and store them separate zip-top bags in the refrigerator. (I use the snack-size zip-top bags for small ingredients.)
  6. If you shred your own cheese, shred it ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator in a zip-top bag.
  7. In the morning, spray a 9 x 11 baking dish with non-stick spray, stir the egg mixture, mix in all of the other ingredients and pour them into the baking dish and bake.
