I first had this at an in-laws! I'm not sure where she got the recipe, but I'm assuming it was from Company's Coming. I omit the green peppers as they don't agree with me. Great with fresh fruit. It has also been called "Christmas Morning Wife Saver".

Christmas Morning Wife Saver is in "Enjoy! More Recipes From The Best of Bridge" Best Of Bridge Publishing Limited, Calgary Alberta. I have always wanted to try this recipe, but never have that many people around for breakfast. I have had something very similar when visiting in Ontario - was very good! It's also often served by B&B hosts.
