I've had this recipe so long, I can't remember where I got it. It is a Christmas tradition in our family; prepared on Christmas Eve and popped in the oven Christmas morning. My brother and I started using it many years ago to save my mother from cooking breakfast AND Christmas Dinner as she always had.
