Breakfast In A Loaf

Cassie *


Delicious!! This is one of my favorite things to make for breakfast, or have even made for dinner. Change out what you might like for the meats, and cheeses. I have made many variations.

Turkey , sausage, bacon, whatever you prefer.

Make sure you get a good crusty bread..
