We enjoy dishes like this , Because sometimes I enjoy having Breakfast for Dinner , A good dish to have if you're having a Brunch or need to take a dish to a Brunch. You can pre-pare it, put it in the crock pot, and do what you need to do while it cooks, can take it somwhere in the crock pot and it's still warm when you get there.
