DH works a lot of overtime and I'm working 2nd shift now we don't get to spend much time together during the week, so Sunday breakfast has become a big thing at our house. He saw this recipe on the comuter screen and kind of made a face. I made them anyway and served with scrambled eggs. After we ate he "suggested" that I make a batch and freeze them so he can take a couple at a time to work and microwave them to have with his morning coffee. I think he likes them! So did the rest of the family. I'll defintely be making these again.
