This dish was a great hit at brunch today and will be added to my repertoire.<br />I used soy Chorizo from Trader Joe's, chopped dried cranberries, cherries and blueberries. <br />I feel good dish with lots of flavor. Love it!

Delicious! Love the sweet sour combination. It has been overwhelming to try to follow all these entries. Wonder if this contest broke any records!

I love the currants too! I've made a quiche in a brown rice crust that is similar to this using chard, cheddar and currants. YUM!
