The weekend is here so it’s time to get ready for big breakfast spreads you don’t have time to do during the week! We really enjoyed this recipe, I prepped it all on Friday and then mixed the ingredients on Saturday so it saved some time. I also cheated and found this at my local HEB-
I figure instead of me making a big batch this would be quick to use and I wouldn’t have a ton leftover.
