“I'm always looking for great breakfast recipes and this one is delicious! Recipe is from Kraft. For a shortcut, you can use the ready to serve bacon or make the bacon in advance. I usually make it in the microwave the night before or use leftover bacon; then I omit cooking the bacon in this recipe.”
