I got this recipe from my sister, who is an amazing cook! We have it often at Christmas for breakfast. The great part is that you make it the night before, and have minimal work in the morning. It's fantastic! :)

This recipe is missing 3 Cups of Milk! (added to egg mixture) that's why it's dry......

This was a big hit with the adults Christmas morning. I have tried to make this in the past with a different recipe that called for milk and it turned out soggy. This recipe was the perfect texture.
