“While watching a morning news show, they made this as a make ahead dish for Christmas morning and it looked so good. I plan to make this year and serve it with some sausage patties and fresh fruit. Update: I made this for Christmas morning and would decrease the eggs by 1/2 next time, as kids felt it tasted too eggy.”
