    Mmmmm sounds great! I have to admit though, on Christmas morning, we don’t have breakfast cos we know we’ll be having a huge lunch later!

    So this recipe is bookmarked, and I will send it to my mom tomorrow! I love finding recipes that can be prepared the night before so that Christmas morning can be as relaxed as possible. This looks so cheesy and delicious. The perfect way to start out the holiday! Thank you for sharing with me. I hope you have a blessed Sunday!
