This was an amazing recipe! It was sooo delicious! I'm so glad I found it. I made it for breakfast along with scrambled eggs and the family loved it! My brother never comments on my cooking whether he likes it or not and when I made this he said "What did you do to it? It tastes exactly the way it does at Dennys." And the way he raves about Dennys thats a big compliment!
