Recipe by Mrs.Jack
My friend Darlene just sent this to me and I wanted to post here for safekeeping. Looks really yummy-and lots of ideas to make it your own-I can already see adding garlic, green chilies, or jalapenos, and for brunch/dinner ideas adding spinach, squash, or green beans. Also, use your favorite cheese or mix them up. Toppings might include sour cream, salsa, chopped tomatoes, or green onions. Enjoy!!!
