One of my favorite parts about the holidays is the fact our whole family is together. My sister comes into town with her family and all of my sisters and their family’s get to spend time together. There is nothing better to me than just hanging out, visiting, letting cousins play and enjoying good food together. I know this chaos would drive some people batty, but I am strange in that way. The more people, the more laughs, the more messes, the more food, the more kids, the better.
My friend shared this recipe with me and I knew it would be the perfect solution to a family breakfast we all would love. We served this dish with lots of fresh fruit, juice and bacon/sausage. The great thing about this recipe is it can be made the night before, placed in the fridge over night and ready to go in the morning. I put this in the oven in the morning when we woke up to go on a jog, went out and enjoyed some fresh air and then came back and consumed all of the calories we had just burned on our run. It was WELL worth every calorie though!
