I originally got this recipe from American Profile. I have adjusted it some and play with the ingredients adding fruit when possible. I also subbed caramel sauce for the maple syrup to make is super caramelly!

I made half a recipe & the only thing I changed was to use some whole grain bread, & we had a wonderfully satisfying breakfast! Loved the flavor of this & will certainly be making it again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]
