“My Mother-In-Law has been making this for breakfast on Christmas day since I met my Dear Husband and before. It's really wonderful, and we always look forward to brunch at Mom's. This recipe can be changed all about, too. I've used pepper-jack cheese and shrimp, Havarti and crab...We just like it best the way Mom makes it! This goes very well with little sweet rolls, fresh strawberries, juice and coffee.”
