    CAFrogley's Note:

    This is recipe from a much beloved restaurant in Lawrence, Kansas -- the Paradise Cafe -- now unfortunately closed. I found the recipe in the paper and am posting it here for safe keeping. These make a great and filling breakfast or brunch. (I haven't made yet, so prep times are estimated). As I recall, the Paradise served these with sides of brown rice and black beans. P.S. If anyone has the Paradise's recipes for the Breakfast Enchiladas or the Douglas County Pie, I would love to see them posted here!
