This dish is a longtime family favorite for Christmas morning. It's light and airy, filled with eggs and juicy apples and delicious with bacon on the side.

"I made this recipe for my sister's birthday--and she absolutely loved it! I followed the recipe almost exactly, and was pleased with the result. We had six people, though, and I doubled the recipe (made two pans), so I don't see how the above portions can comfortably serve eight. I will definitely make this recipe again!"

"This recipe was very good. It did taste a lot like eggs though but we ate it with syrup so it masked the eggy taste."
