As a busy mom of four, I love this recipe for several reasons, but here are four:
1. It is great to make ahead overnight and pull out on weekend mornings for an easy brunch treat.
2. Savory/sweet combination is a favorite.
3. It is embarrassingly easy to make.
4. Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?
