I first tried this when my husband's sister made these for us. I was surprised as we had just popped over and she had invited us to stay for dinner. It always fascinates me when people can rustle up delicious food on the spur of the moment. I often have competitions with myself to see what I can come up with using whatever I have in my cupboards and fridge. I've never taken it as far as having a whole dinner party unplanned, that would be far too stressful and people may not appreciate my sentiment.
You can definitely leave the sour cream out to make it low fat or use low fat sour cream. We opted to leave it out all together as wanted to make it as healthy as possible. We also didn't use brioche, preferring seeded bread but choose whatever bread you would like for this, just choose one as the juices are delicious and you need the bread to soak it up.
