This is so easy! This recipe came about one Sunday morning when hubby and I were cooking a big breakfast with our 3 adult kids. We were all in the kitchen cooking, using the stove for bacon and fried potatoes and the oven for toast, and also the electric skillet going, making French toast. Hubby wanted eggs too.. And this is how we always do it now.
