“Looking for a fabulous new breakfast? This is it, very easy to fix, and makes a wonderful presentation when serving. Great for any day of the week, or makes an impression on guests. They taste as yummy as they look. I started making these about 15 years ago when my son was in middle school. After sleepovers, the other boys would be so impressed with breakfast, and would beg their moms to get the recipe. The great thing was, this recipe is easy enough for that age group to make themselves. Hope you try it, we love it. This is a Taste of Home recipe.”
