“For those who like (or need) to eat breakfast on the go, this is a great option. Be warned, though, that this cooks at a low temperature for 2 hours, then it really needs to sit for a good day before you slice it (which is not included in the prep time) but it is absolutely awesome with coffee, tea, or milk. You can make this when you have the time and freeze it by the slab (I meant slice) for quick thawing.”
