Recipe by Chef on the coast
This is comfort food. For me, DH and our kids. We really enjoy this in the winter time when it is so cold outside! It's hearty enough to fill DH and the kids usually come back for more too.

I cut this recipe in half and made as written, the result was a delicious country morning breakfast. For the gravy I used condensed milk which gave this a nice thick and rich consistency. Thanks for posting, a keeper and will be made again! Made for "Down on the Farm" Photo Tag May 2012!
