Christmas Morning Wife Saver

Michelle Johnston


This is a recipe that was handed down to me by my Mom. I use it Christmas morning because I can make it the night before, store it in the refrigerator and throw it in the oven Christmas morning to cook while the family opens gifts. Once gift opening is done - breakfast is ready! Kids love it.
