As moms, we do a lot of cooking over the holidays – and I gotta say, I love to feed people. That said, sometimes it can be overwhelming! I love this recipe because I can throw it together the night before and in the morning, warm up the oven before my baking starts (or the turkey or the ham or whatever giant meal I’m making!) and just throw this in there, and my family and guests can have a hot, hearty breakfast to start the day. Pro-tip: use a foil baking tin for easy clean up! The last thing you need is one more pan to wash, am I right?
