Christmas Brunch

Susie Trial


This is a tasty and hearty, tried and true dish that the menfolk love and the children scarf down. It's easy and you can make it ahead as I do on Christmas Eve night. Then pop it into the oven while everyone is around the tree Christmas morning. That's enough to please any of us ladies. Enjoy more time with the family AND feed them something delicious that will stay with them for hours.
