My parents stayed at this B&B, I think in Iowa, and brought back this recipe. This is a great breakfast for company as it can be made the night before. I made it for a choir retreat and it was a big hit. Tastes good as is as well as with maple syrup. I included the time in the refrigerator in the cooking passive time. Other than that, this really is a quick breakfast.

This was excellent!!! I cut the serving size to 2 but otherwise made as written. I didn't even need to add syrup as it was plenty sweet without anything else. Thanks for sharing Chef by Chance. Made for PAC fall 08.
